ESG's Christophe Bertrand and Vinny Choinski discuss their impressions from Veeam ON 2019, held in Miami FL.
Announcer: The following is an ESG on-location video.
Christophe: Welcome to Miami, where we are roughing it up here at ESG for Veeam ON 2019. Three important news items today. First of all, Veeam has passed the one billion dollar bar in terms of bookings.
I think that's a great achievement for a company that was only at 50 million 6 years ago. And also, and announcement of a new program, the With Veeam program, which has seen its first instantiation last week with the announcement of Nutanix Prime, but also other platforms such as the ExaGrid platform as well. And finally, the Orchestrator solution is now at v2.
This is a very interesting solution that helps end-users as well as service providers with disaster recovery, automation, and really sets the foundation for secondary data uses as it really provides a way to DDR from backups, but also reuse that data from backups, which is a departure from the previous version of it which was only available for replication.
Vinny: I'm Vinny Choinski with the ESG validation team, and I'm here at Veeam ON in Miami. One of the things that I like about the show so far is that I've had the chance to interact with some of the customers and we're taking a look at how they're expanding the Veeam footprint in their environment. We've seen people take it from virtual server environments and now adding physical agents, new storage solutions and expanding their original footprint.
