The Challenge

Mouse trap

I was playing Mousetrap with my kids this morning and it got me thinking about data management.  In the board game you move around trying to win pieces of cheese whilst at the same time avoiding the mousetrap.

As I got to be caught in the mouse trap for about the 8th time it reminded me how often in IT we are chasing the cheese – new projects, platforms and objectives whist neglecting the importance of data management. Data is the life blood of most companies these days but data management and protection is often an afterthought until there is an issue, aka you are caught in the mouse trap.

The solution

Firstly I would recommend not playing Mouse Trap with kids they always seem to win.  Secondly good data management is about recognising it’s importance from the inception of projects and creating a data management strategy, so as to avoid any pitfalls. Veeam are putting on one of the largest data management events of the year in Miami with their VeeamON event. The event features key data management experts, training opportunities, break out sessions, demos and key partners such as HPE and NetApp.

Event Detail

This years event takes place 20-22nd May in Miami Florida.  Some of the sessions I thought looked interesting included:

  • Ultimate Guide to Veeam Cloud Mobility: Tips, Tricks and Use Cases
    Veeam Backup & Replication Common Mistakes and How to Fix Them
  • Veeam Storage Integration Deep Dive
  • Architecture, Installation and Design for Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365
  • Automate Yourself Out of a Backup Job — Advanced PowerShell & API Usage

VeeamON Why Go

VeeamON Virtual

VeeamON is due to hit screens near you in the near future.  VeeamON is an online webinar held annually by Veeam covering data management tips and tricks, industry trends plus the latest product updates. The online webinar format makes it handy to fit around your work day, but like a transitional conference there will be a number of learning tracks available: Business, Technical or Cloud.

VeeamON Why Go

My picks for the sessions to watch will include Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4 . I like to see whats new with the product and the direction the team is taking it in.

Veeam predictions 2019 – Backup used to be boring, not now with an ever changing landscape of multi-cloud and massive data growth, I will be tuning into this one to see what Veeam thinks is around the corner.

Save your data securely off site with Veeam Cloud Connect – this should hopefully answer something customers regularly ask me about, Where can I offsite data? Should i use the cloud and how? Take a look at the agenda to see what other sessions are available.

There will also be chat rooms where you can ask any questions you may have.  I will be helping out in the chat rooms so pop in and say hi.
