"VeeamON is the premier data center availability event, bringing
together for the first time thought leaders, industry experts, and IT
professionals from all over the world to immerse themselves in the
latest in modern data center availability technology," said Ratmir
Timashev, CEO of Veeam. "The new era of the modern data center brings
new challenges, but with the much anticipated launch of the new Veeam
Availability Suite™ v8 later this year, we can do what legacy data
protection and backup systems never could: Veeam provides Availability
for the Modern Data Center to enable the Always-On Business. For the
first time, IT can achieve recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of
less than 15 minutes for all applications and data. At VeeamON, we will
be able to connect directly with customers, partners and industry
leaders to explore the new era of modern data center challenges and how
we'll all work together to solve them."
Timashev will share the keynote stage with Alexis Ohanian, entrepreneur
and co-founder of Reddit, a top-50 US website. Now a Reddit board
member, Ohanian focuses�his time and energy on founding and investing in
companies that fit his model of "making something people love and making
the world suck less."
Industry-leading analysts from Gartner, Forrester (News - Alert) Research, Inc. and
Enterprise Srategy Group (ESG) will be featured at VeeamON as speakers,
presenters and facilitators.
"It is impossible to imagine a modern data center that isn't highly
virtualized, regardless of whether that infrastructure lives on an
enterprise's raised floor, an SMB's back closet, or in a cloud
provider," said Jason Buffington, senior analyst at ESG.
"Not coincidentally, data protection and assured availability demands
have never been higher. Veeam is known for its innovation, so I am
excited to be a part of VeeamON 2014 where so many protection and
availability experts will come together under one roof."
"Veeam has been an integral part of our DR strategy and success, and we
are honored to be a part of their first VeeamON event," said William
Dalton, IT Director at TrendMicro.
"We look forward to joining the Veeam team and our peers to share our
experiences and gain insight into how Veeam's solutions can deliver on
the promise of the 24-7 data center."
