Cloud Field Day 5 – Recap and Videos #CFD5

Last week I had the pleasure of presenting at Cloud Field Day 5 (a Tech Field Day event). Joined by Michael Cade and David Hill, we took the delegates through Veeam’s cloud vision by showcasing current product and features in the Veeam platform including specific technology that both leverages and protects Public Cloud workloads and services. We also touched on where Veeam is at in terms of market success and also dug into how Veeam enables Service Providers to build services off our Cloud Connect technology.

First off, I would like to thank Stephen Foskett and the guys at Gestalt IT for putting together the event. Believe me there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes and it is impressive how the team are able to setup, tear down and setup agin in different venues while handling the delegates themselves. Also to all the delegates, it was extremely valuable being able to not only present to the group, but also have a chance to talk shop at the offical reception dinner…some great thought provoking conversations where had and I look forward to seeing where your IT journey takes you all next!

Getting back to the recap, i’ve pasted in the YouTube links to the Veeam session below. Michael Cade has a great recap here, where he gives his overview on what was presented and some thoughts about the event.

In terms of what was covered:

We tried to focus on core features relating to cloud and then show a relatable live demo to reinforce the slide decks. No smoke and mirrors when the Veeam Product Strategy Team is doing demos… they are always live!

For those that might not have been up to speed with what Veeam has done over the past couple of years it is a great opportunity to learn about what we have done innovating the Data Protection space, while also looking at the progress we have made in recent times in transitioning to a true software defined, hardware agnostic platform that offers customers absolute choice. We like to say that Veeam was born in the virtual world…but is evolving in the Cloud!

Summary:

Once again, being part of Cloud Field Day 5 was a fantastic experience, and the team executed the event well. In terms of what Veeam set out to achieve, Michael, David and myself where happy with what we where able to present and demo and we where happy with the level of questions being asked by the delegates. We are looking forward to attending Tech Field Day 20 later in the year and maybe as well as continue to show what Veeam can do today…take a look at where we are going in future releases!

Heading to Cloud Field Day 5 #CFD5

I’m currently on the first leg over from Perth to San Fransisco where I’ll head down to Silicon Valley to present at Cloud Field Day 5. This will be my first Tech Field Day event which some may find surprising given my involvement in and around the virtualisation community prior to joining Veeam. I often got asked why I never applied to be a delegate… to be honest I’m not able to answer that question, however I’m really looking forward to presenting with my fellow Product Strategy team members, Michael Cade and David Hill as a sponsor.

Veeam at Tech Field Day Cloud 5

It’s an important event for us at Veeam as we are given the #CFD stage for two hours, first up on the Wednesday morning to talk about how Veeam has evolved from a backup vendor covering vSphere and Hyper-V to one which now offers a platform that extends into the public cloud backed by an incredibly strong Cloud and Service Provider ecosystem.

There is no doubt that the backup industry is currently hot with a number of large investments made into a number of vendors, including us here at Veeam who recently had a $500 million injection for us to pursue acquisitions and increase our development capabilities. There are a number of backup vendors presenting at the CFD#5, including vendors who are not historically backup focused but now, more and more offering inbuilt protection.

For Michael, David and myself we will be focusing on reiterating what Veeam has done in leading the industry for a number of years in innovation while also looking at the progress we have made in recent times in transitioning to a true software defined, hardware agnostic platform that offers customers absolute choice.

Veeam are presenting at 8.30am (Pacific Time) Wednesday 10th April 2019

I am looking forward to presenting to all the delegates as well as those who join via the livestream.
