After having a super busy week last week and not having much chance to share some of the top stuff Veeam have released with this monster release, I am now back home and can get some content out the door. I wanted this post to touch on some of them top features that are worth taking a deeper look into. External Repository Lots of people are going to be jumping into the new Veeam Backup & Replication console and they are going to see several new “repositories” that can be added to their Veeam Backup Infrastructure. One of them, is the new External Repository. TheRead More →

The usual last blog of the year, highlighting things that have happened, travel, website and twitter stuff. I really do this to highlight to myself how things looked when I get to this point next year and we see some progression in some or all areas.

Closing out my own events season with the final event being NetApp Insight in Barcelona, this blog is something I put together live during the general session.

A year in review A lot of people have stated that 2017 was a rubbish year, I don’t have that same feeling. My year was a very exciting one.

Here is a look back at what I said for the 2016 version – https://vzilla.co.uk/vzilla-blog/the-year-of-the-vzilla-2016 This type of post for me has come a little bit of a tradition, a summary of my year from vZilla.co.uk stats to my biggest achievements with some community and travel summary as well.Read More →
