Welcome Veeam Cloud Connect!
They say there are always three sides to every story, and this one is no exception.
The first one is personal. If you ever worked for a software company, you know there is no better reward than seeing a new solution going into the market, after you were involved in its creation, at any level. Even if you are not a programmer, like I am not, there are many ways you can contribute to the creation process. One year ago I was still working for a Veeam partner and customer, and I suggested on the Veeam forums a new idea. It was August 2013, so I was invited by Veeam to meet and talk about it during the upcoming VMworld.
Fast forward some months, I’m now working at Veeam, but most of all some of the concepts behind that idea are now part of a solution that will be available in the new Veeam Availability Suite v8 (which includes Veeam Backup & Replication v8 and Veeam ONE v8). Its name is Veeam Cloud Connect, and I can’t be more happy about it!
The two other sides are about Veeam Cloud Connect itself, and are deeply interconnected: it’s the story of customers looking to extend their data protection outside of their data center, and the story of service providers offering Veeam-powered services to their customers.
