Hope you have the energy and the element of good fortune we will all need to ensure a successful to the new year and a prosperous future beyond that. I hope you all are having great holidays. I would also like to thank Veeam Software (in particular Alexandra) which is the first supporter that sponsors this blog. Special thanks to “LeMagIT.fr” magazine, they published one interview in French about Veeam Availability Suite v9.5 Update 4, then thanks to Veeam France (in particular Alexis) and Monaco Informatique Service – Avangarde, we organized 3 webinars and 2 events (#SecureITDay)! Many events will be coming in 2019… 😉 Finally, special thanks to “SMART DSI” magazine, we published one article in French about Data Protection.

2018 also saw clear confirmation of 2017 trend with the same number of visitors.


Since 2014, the blog grew up! Basically, I have some wishes for 2019 but one of them is ALWAYS to run my first marathon! So, I hope everything will be alright and now my life cycle is training, work, warm up, training, hard work etc. 🙂

[FIX] Object reference not set to an instance of an object…

Hi! As you know, after updating VMware vCenter to 6.7 Update 1, processing of all VMs fails with “Object reference not set to an instance of an object“. The issue is triggered by an update to the vSphere API version in vCenter 6.7 U1. It appeared to be a small API change which had an unexpectedly big impact on Veeam B&R. Here’s the post to introduce the workaround, waiting Veeam B&R 9.5 Update 4…

[WEBINAR] Veeam Backup for Office365 v2: Saving your Data!

This week, I participated at Vanguard Summit 2018 in Prague as Veeam Vanguard. What is the #VeeamVanguard program? So many Vanguards, so many visions! About 45 Vanguards are here, from all over the world talking about community, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office365, Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4 etc. In the upcoming Veeam Availability Suite v9.5 Update 4 release (Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 U4 and Veeam One 9.5 U4), Veeam announced some new features. Note: Veeam B&R 9.5 Update 4 should be available in the last quarter of 2018.

Hardening VMware and Backup

Hi, availability is based on policy-based mechanisms where data is often manually relocated to optimize cost and performance or to recover from a security intrusion. Tomorrow’s availability must evolve to a more autonomous model where the system reacts and adjusts automatically to any significant changes in the behavior of data, apps, or users anywhere across the enterprise. This level of automation is a big leap from where we are today. How can we bridge that gap from where we are to where we need to go? Keep in mind that Data Protection is crucial for ensuring the security of your data… My opinion is based on this Life Cycle: Data Protection = Cybersecurity approach + Data Governance + Modern Backup & Disaster Recovery. When we talk about Cybersecurity on an IT infrastructure, engineers have to apply some security rules to each component (server, storage, network etc.). This process is called “hardening”. Hardening has a true impact on the architecture (communication etc.), especially with the Modern Backup & Disaster Recovery environment. The following article is a feedback about Backup Job with Veeam Backup & Replication and hardening VMware vSphere infrastructure (Virtualization)…
