Has written in a previous post, Veeam has announced their first big multi-day event: VeeamOn 2014. 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. The agenda is not yet available, but the contents are quite interesting and, of course, most related to the new products release.

The VeeamON event will be 3 day event, and is split between partner and general attendee sessions (plus a training session):

  • Monday 6 October: Partner Sessions
  • Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 October: General Sessions
  • From 6th to 9th October for VMCE training (the VMCE course is mainly included in the event fee… a big opportunity!)
  • Location will be Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada

Of course there are the same reasons of other similar events starting from the community and social aspects. But there are also some specific reason to attend at this particular event.

Contents first

Like other similar event there was a Call For Paper and also a public voting session though an event survey (you still have time until this Friday). In this case the selection criteria seems clear and transparent: you can select your top 8 choices and the top 32 ranked sessions will be included in the final agenda.

Simple and effective. Of course sessions are not comparable with an event like VMworld, but honestly not all VMworld are at the same level… so probably could be better have less but best (or on a good level).

In any case remain the best opportunity for learn about the new release and it’s features (although most of the features were already announced, but I suppose that there is still the place for some “surprise”).

Be part of the history

This will be the first big event from Veeam, could be something new, and could become a must for the future. Also if this event goes well, maybe they will consider also an European edition. In any case you could be the witness of a new era.

Meet and know Veeam

Veeam has grown faster from the 2006, but this event could be a big opportunity to meat most of the Veeam people. The entire board seems present and is not so common for big companies.

Lab Warz

Hands on Labs are usually a plus of this kind of events. But in this case you can show off your skills and compete in hands-on lab exercises to win!

The Lab Warz competition is based on your knowledge of Veeam technologies and best practices! Take the Veeam Lab Warz challenge and compete with your peers.

Veeam + Vegas = UberParty?

Veeam party are usually amazing. How could be awesome a Veaam Party in Las Vegas?
