VMware Explore 2023 General Session Recap – Looking forward to an exciting week full of knowledge acquisition and networking, the event has begun with the General Session at VMware Explore in Barcelona. Basically, the keynote provides some very good techie announcements, but it needs to also apply more of a business perspective of how these deliver business value. If you’re in Barcelona for the big event and still have some space to fill in your schedule, be sure to meet Monaco Digital’s teams and talk about Cloud, Edge, Data Protection, and Security.
Hello, I do expect the on-prem object storage adoption to go through the roof with backup solutions support for backing up directly to object storage. The ratio between the on-prem and cloud looks to be about 50/50. Thanks to S3 endpoint names often carrying a hint on the object storage device behind it, it is clear that Dell EMC ECS remains the king of large-scale on-prem object storage deployments. Data showed that object storage was almost exclusively used by enterprise customers, these days there is also a long tail of smaller deployments on vendors like Wasabi (Cloud Hot Storage). Here’s a blog post about Object Storage as backup target with Veeam B&R v12.1.
Veeam revealed the new features that will be available with the next release of VBR v12.1. With these new releases, Veeam further extends the feature set available in these products with a focus on Security & Compliance general improvements. Here’s blog post about Key Management System Support.
Great to be attending the #Veeam100Summit in Prague where the 100 best Veeam engineers come together with the Veeam product team to discuss the next steps in backup technology. Today’s hot topic is Veeams new v12.1 feature allowing for inline malware detection and YARA rule scanning of backup data. To really add emphasis to the fact that backups are critical to any companies cyber security estate, we’ve spent a massive chunk of time this morning discussing new malware detection into Veeam Backup & Replication 12.1.
