Veeam Velocity 2019 – Update 4 Launch and Innovation Awards

This time next week we will be well into Veeam Velocity 2019. In previous years, this event acts as our global sales kick off however this year we have incorporated partners into the event and will be using it as a platform to launch the next major version of our Veeam Availability Suite. Specifically we are launching Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4 which includes a ton of new features and enhancements to our platform and I can truly say that we have raised the bar when it comes to innovation in the availability space.

There are a number of internal and partner related sessions happening over the three days with the highlight being the offical Launch Event for the Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4. This will be live streamed from the event and you can register to view the stream here. During the event I will be on stage with other members of the Veeam Product Strategy team where we will be showing live demo’s of some of the key new features of Update 4.

For those attending, you can view all sessions and build your session schedule through the Velocity 2019 app. You can find the app on the Google Play or Apple App Store by searching “CrowdCompass AttendeeHub” in the store. Download the app then search for Velocity 2019!

Veeam Innovation Awards @ Velocity 2019

At Velocity 2019 will host the second edition of our VIAs for partners. The Veeam Innovation Awards program seeks to celebrate Veeam partners who are thinking differently about IT as a key strategic component to meet the demands of today’s business. Similar to the first VIAs held at VeeamON 2018 last year, the second iteration of the awards heavily features VCSPs who consistently lead the way when it comes to pushing the boundaries of innovation in our space.

This time around we have already announced the main prize winners:

  • iLand
  • Offsite Data Sync
  • PhoenixNAP
  • Zettagrid

What we are doing for Velocity is announcing a best of show by way of having the public vote on each of the winners video submission which effectively go through each of their own innovative technology solutions and pitch their solutions to the voting audience. The voting is only open until this Friday, so I would encourage all people who work in and around Veeam to cast their vote.
