Veeam Vanguard Summit 2019 a Quick Recap

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 Summit.

Also, you can learn more about a throwback to the Microsoft community who are planning to attend Microsoft Ignite 2019 Orlando, FL (read through to know more).

Veeam Vanguard Summit 2019

This technical conference differs from other community conferences I usually attend, like the Microsoft MVP Summit in Redmond.

Suppose I compare the MVP Summit with the Veeam Vanguard Summit. In that case, fewer attendees at the Vanguard summit make 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.

Rick Vanover and his team head the Veeam Vanguard program, which is managed by Nikola Pejková, the Community Manager of the #VeeamVanguard program.

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 the entire insides of each product directly from the Veeam product teams.


Some of those products are listed down:

Veeam Licensing Changes

Environments are changing, and even licensing models are changing. The entire world is moving to a subscription model, and to align 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.

Container Discussions

Veeam Vanguard Summit 2019 had an exciting session about containers, including considerations for containers (stateless or stateful). 

There is a difference between containers and VMs. Also, how is the backup mechanism different when it comes to containers? How do we back up stateless containers? What should we back up in stateful container scenarios, etc.?

Nutanix & Veeam

Nutanix covers many things in the virtual computing 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.
