Really great recap of VeeamON.  Blog post will come for me once things settle and I get back. Must say Universal Studios was great.

Looks amazing, I might do a VeeamON Recap, whereby I play the grumbly bloke that missed out and stayed at home!

 

Hope everyone had as much fun as it looked! :)

@safiya That was an amazing write-up. There were so many great sessions. I’m still trying to catch up on ones I missed! It was great meeting you and @Madi.Cristil and so many Veeam100 and VeeaMVPs and product teams and customers. It was a great event. I can’t wait for VeeamON 2024!

Great recap.  I’ll be blogging on my review of the event as well, although I have a backlog of work to work my way though before I can get a chance to put it together.  That said, at least both of the proposals I’m working on currently have Veeam included, and both are for products I haven’t really dealt with too much - one is backing up from Veeam Agent direct to Object and the other is backing up a new VM in Azure - both to be managed by the service provider console.  I will say that I feel more prepared for this after attending VeeamON and talking to the fine folks in our Community!
