As most of you know I am now working at Veeam as a Technical Evangelist focusing on Veeam’s Service Provider products and working with VCSP’s to help enhance service offering around Veeam’s product portfolio. Part of that role is creating offical content for online materials and presentations however I still intend to keep this blog pumping and continue to write about all things hosting and cloud…especially when related to the vCloud Air Network.
Today I am writing the first of my Veeam Vault series which I intend to use as my working title for all Veeam related news around anything Veeam related. To kick things off I am going to talk about the VeeamOn Call for Presentations and the 2017 Vanguard nominations.
VeeamOn is being held next year in New Orleans during May and the Call for Presentations is now open to those looking to submit a session at the event. This is a great opportunity to share you insights and experiences that you have gained in and around Veeam software solutions. Below are the content area’s for submission of which you must head to the CFP site and submit an abstract.
- Veeam product usage
- Cloud and storage
- Enterprise and business topics related to the above areas
Abstract must be 200 to 250 words, complete with title and supporting bullet points. The huge news is that if selected, presenters will receive a complimentary VeeamOn registration pass along with travel and hotel accommodations. If that’s not a great reason to submit a session then I don’t know what is! Head to the site below to submit an abstract before February 7, 2017.
As an added extra, if you have a session you want to co-present with myself on anything Veeam Cloud Connect related, let me know and we can work on a joint submission.
Veeam Vanguard 2017 Nominations:
As a former Vanguard it’s exciting to now be on the other side of the nomination process and I would encourage anyone who has a passion for Veeam and has demonstrated that passion through community engagement and content creation to nominate for the 2017 intake. As I have mentioned before, this is one of the greatest advocacy programs in our industry and there is no doubting the positive impact being part of the Vanguard program brings to members of the group…both on a professional and personal level.
Vanguards receive a number of exclusive program benefits — honestly, too many to list — but among these extensive benefits are a private forum site, elevated access to Veeam Product Management, and private webinars and briefings. We’re continually adapting the program based on feedback from the Vanguards, as well as catering program benefits to innovate the program for this elite group. Additionally, we are planning a great experience for Vanguards at VeeamON 2017, so this will be a great year to participate.
Nominate yourself or someone you know for the Veeam Vanguard award here:
Please note that nominations will be accepted up until Friday the 9th of December 2016 so hurry and nominate yourself or someone you believe is worthy of joining the Vanguard program.
