Present Blog – IT Thought Leadership



Veeam, created a decade ago, has an impressive track record:

  • 1 million active installations of Veeam Backup & Replication (the world's most widely deployed enterprise backup software).
  • Over 15 million protected Microsoft 365 mailboxes.
  • An install base of 400,000 customers.

It was within this context that VeeamON 2021 was held:

  • The seventh global Veeam user and partner conference bringing together IT visionaries and data protection experts.
  • Over 30,000 registered participants from 175 countries gathered for two days of discussion and networking.

The conference program was focused around four main themes namely:

  •  Cloud acceleration (AWS, Azure, Google).
  • Cybersecurity and ransomware elimination.
  • Kubernetes.
  • Microsoft Office 365 backup best practices.

Given the large number of sessions taking place simultaneously, I chose to attend the presentations that I found most relevant to the concerns of our Veeam customers. 

  • General session: The future of modern data protection.
  • End-to-End Workshop: Veeam CDP
  • AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Native Backup - Getting Started.
  • Ransomware Recovery – 10 Top Expert Advice & Tips.
  • New V11: Best Practices for Enterprises.
  • Architect’s Desk: Sizing of Veeam Backup & Replication, Proxies and Repositories
  • VeeamON Exclusive: V11 - 3 months in with Anton Gostev.  

As part of the unveiling of its roadmap, the company announced:

  • Key innovations for cloud native solutions for AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Microsoft Office 365.
  • The first integration of Kasten K10 for Kubernetes in Veeam B&R. 
The solutions presented at VeeamON will be available later in 2021.

What I take away from these 2 days:

  • The very high relevance of the presentations, in particular I found Rick Vanover and Anton Gostev as impressive as ever.
  • A clear roadmap. 

And the closing remarks from Danny Allan, CTO at Veeam: “With these demonstrations [at VeeamON], we are upping the ante for Modern Data Protection, ensuring our customers can protect ALL workloads across ALL environments; Veeam continues to set the standard for the industry,”
