LTO9 and Air Gap with Quantum Active Vault

Veeam Hardened Linux Repository – Part I

Hello, before tackling the subject of your presence, allow me to briefly introduce myself: I am Philippe DUPUIS, I‘m a french Data Management and Security engineer working with Christopher (Be indulgent if you notice some English grammar failures, my mother tongue is French 😊). I specialize in Data Protection and Governance, Disaster Recovery, Security, Cloud & Virtualization technologies. I’m really enjoying writing my first blog post on this amazing blog.

My presentation is done, let’s talk about one of the best new features of Veeam v11: « Immutable Linux repositories ». Reminder, we did a french webinar last month about the new features of Veeam v11 (Blog Post).
