VeeamON: A good show at its 1.0 version (but there is much more)

I’m currently attending VeeamON in Las Vegas. The green colored company, which is hosting its first show for partners and customers, has done a good job. Yes, there is space for improvement (especially on how manage a specific blogger track) but I’m sure that the feedback will help them to do even better next year. About the show Veeam has managed to bring some real good stuff here. The CEO’s keynote presentation done in an interview-style fashion, was brilliant and it helped Ratmir Timashev be more comfortable on stage (he looked quite nervous but with the help of the...

Your next (big) VTL? it will probably be a S3 storage

In case you missed it, many backup softwares are already supporting both on-premises and public S3 repositories (object storage) as target for backup jobs. Others will be joining this trend soon. Object storage is perfect for backups and the capabilities offered by the latest versions of available products make this type of storage a good solution for short and long term backups. Two pillars As you probably already know, I’m strongly convinced that the future of enterprise storage will be sustained by two pillars: AFA (and hyper-converged AFA systems) on one side, and object storage on the other (here...

VeeamON is around the corner… are you ready for it?

At the beginning of October I’ll be attending the first VeeamON in Las Vegas. I usually don’t accept invites from single product companies (which means a long journey to the US for me) but for Veeam it is slightly different. (BTW, they are not a single product company, even if it’s indisputable that they are mostly known for their backup suite) Why I’m attending I admire Veeam for being capable of innovating in a field that is all but sexy! In fact, in case you aren’t already informed, Veeam leads the market of backup solutions for virtualized infrastructures with...

Tech Field Day Roundtables at VMworld (Simplivity and Commvault)

Yesterday I attended the second part of Tech Field Day roundtables at VMworld, this time I had the opportunity to meet Simplivity and CommVault. If the first day the room was crammed with bloggers, this time I counted even more people in the room. The discussion that came alongside the presentations was very interesting. Unfortunately there wasn’t a live streaming of the event but I will share the videos as soon as they will be available! Simplivity I’ve recently wrote a couple of blogs on Simplivity. There isn’t a lot more to add but there is a piece of...

Tech field day roundtables at VMworld (Asigra and Infinio)

One of the most interesting meetings that I attended yesterday, alongside VMworld, was the Tech Field Day. This event is not like a traditional TFD, this is a much more interactive session, a roundtable, to discuss a topic presented by a vendor. Yesterday, in a room packed with bloggers from US and EU, two companies presented their ideas: Asigra and Infinio. Asigra First of all, I admit that I don’t know neither Asigra nor its products very good… and this session didn’t help either. In fact we spent a lot of time talking about the licensing model of the...
