VeeamON 2019 Recap

Last week Veeam held its annual conference VeeamON in Miami at the FountainBlue Hotel! And what a venue it was.  This has to be the nicest venue I have attended a conference in.

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.

By leveraging tags this allows you to launch EC2 instances and assign them specific tags and never worry about those instances being protected. This works across AWS accounts too. Whats makes this even easier is when your using something like cloud formation to deploy anything in EC2 you can just have these tags propagated immediately. Lets take a quick look at how we do this.
