I have been part of the Veeam Vanguard program since 2015. Last week I was in Prague attending Veeam Vanguard Summit 2019, and it was an inspiring experience. This post will give a quick overview of the Veeam Vanguard Summit.
Also, you can find out more about a throwback to the Microsoft community who are planning to attend Microsoft Ignite 2019 Orlando, FL ⏬⏬⏬ (read through to know more).
Introduction – Veeam Vanguard Summit 2019
This technical conference is different from all other community conferences I usually attend, like the Microsoft MVP Summit in Redmond.
Suppose I compare MVP Summit with the Veeam Vanguard summit. In that case, there are fewer attendees at the Vanguard summit, making you feel like you are interacting with almost everyone from Veeam and the IT community.
And also, you know everyone, even though we are not from the same technical background.

Veeam & 2019
2019 is an exciting year for Veeam, and they are releasing many products with great features this year.
As part of the Veeam Vanguard Summit 2019, all the vanguards got entire insides of each of these products directly from the Veeam product teams.
Some of those products are listed down:
- Veeam Availability Suite v10 (Coming Soon)
- Veeam Backup & Replication v10 (Coming Soon)
- Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v4 (Coming Soon)
- Veeam Availability Orchestrator
- And many more
Veeam Licensing Changes
Environments are changing, and even licensing models are changing:) The entire world is going into a subscription model, and to get aligned with better industry standards, Veeam is also changing the licensing model.
Vanguards had an excellent presentation on this Veeam Universal License (VUL) – Veeam Universal Licensing model.
Veeam Vanguard summit 2019 had an exciting session about containers. The considerations towards containers (stateless or stateful).
The difference between containers and VMs. Also, how does the backup mechanism different when it comes to containers. How do we backup stateless containers? What should we backup in stateful containers scenarios etc…
Nutanix & Veeam
Nutanix covers many things in the virtual compute and storage world with its “appliance” solution.
As part of the Veeam Vanguard Summit 2019, we had an exciting session about the Veeam backup solution for Nutanix.
