Veeam is at Cloud Field Day 5

Next week is Cloud Field Day 5 and Veeam will be presenting.  This is an exciting time for Veeam as the cloud portfolio grows and the integration of the data management platform increases.  With the world going all in on cloud, Veeam will be present to showcase the growing integration points across the mega clouds while still maintaining the industry best practice of the 3-2-1 rule.
