VeeamON is Veeam’s Data Center Availability conference where they bring together technology partners from around the world to experience how their software helps keep data protected and always available. VeeamON was last hosted in October 2015 out in Vegas. Veeam chose to skip the conference in 2016 and push it out just 18 months later to New Orleans in early 2017.
Next week VeeamON 2017 kicks off at the New Orleans Convention Center. The conference beings on Tuesday with Veeam Partner Day in the morning and a Veeam User Group meeting in the afternoon followed by the VeeamON Welcome Reception in the early evening. Wednesday morning will start the VeeamON General & Breakout Sessions.
Since there are approximately 85+ Breakout Sessions to choose from, I thought i’d list some of these awesome breakout sessions (in no particular order) that I think will be beneficial to check out. Enjoy!
