Anyhow the reason for the delay in publishing this post was simply because I was always planning on using these “5 A’s of Veeam” for my 5-minute slot at the event. I was asked while at an event last year to describe Veeam in 2 minutes, what do they do? What do they do very well? And what problem do they fix? This got me thinking about a few things around what it is Veeam is but also what Veeam is perceived to be within the Industry.
85% of the audience at this event had heard of Veeam. Great stuff. However only 50% knew what Veeam does…. Not so good in my opinion. Another misconception is that Veeam is only any good in the SMB market and is not for Enterprise, this has changed dramatically over the past few years and some of the points below will allude to this.
The strongest message here is that from a storage point of view both front end production and also backup target storage. Veeam simply doesn’t mind what vendor or protocol this storage is using.
