Veeam’s partner event kicks off in Las Vegas

Veeam’s partner event kicks off in Las Vegas

Cloud data management vendor Veeam kicks off its annual VeeamON customer and partner event in Las Vegas today, and IT Europa is here to bring you the news as it unfolds.

It is the first in-person VeeamON since the pandemic struck, and the vendor’s tens of thousands of partners globally will be keen to hear what the company’s new CEO Anand Eswaran plans for Veeam going forward.

The cloud data management space is also an increasingly busy one, with smaller companies like Acronis rapidly scaling up, and more established vendors like Commvault making efforts to keep market share by ramping up its as-a-service offerings.

Veeam will no doubt have opinions on the competition as always. We’ll also hear how its data centre infrastructure is widening to help support the data sovereignty requirements of its partners internationally.

And the product offerings will see updates and new ways of selling to address niche markets. Veeam Kasten by Veeam is a case in point. This “independent” business unit in Veeam has just announced the new Kasten by Veeam K10 V5.0 Kubernetes data management platform.

Purpose-built for Kubernetes, the release is focused on delivering a comprehensive risk management strategy, streamlined CI/CD pipelines and “new ecosystem advancement details that optimise and de-risk Kubernetes investments”.

“As ransomware attacks continue to remain the highest concern for organisations, a comprehensive risk management strategy to help continuously identify risk, protect data, detect attacks and deliver disaster recovery for cloud native applications is crucial,” said Gaurav Rishi, vice president of products and partnerships at Kasten by Veeam.
