Next VeeamON conference is approaching fast: it will take place at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center at New Orleans (Louisiana) during May, 16-18 2017.

After the first edition (in 2014) and the second (in 2015), after one year with only live or local events (like VeeamON Tour), this will be the third big own event from Veeam (and it’s ecosystem). An important milestone for a company that was founded in 2006 and now one of biggest in its field (and still a good example on how the virtualization ecosystem can grow using also the ecosystem itself).

VeeamON will be a big event (and potentially one of the “biggest”) not only about Veeam and their products, but on the entire availability and data protection area with more than 3,000 peers, thought leaders, subject matter experts and IT professionals to discuss the latest in data center modernization using virtualization, storage and cloud technologies.
