Veeam Vanguard 2017! #VeeamLovers

Hi, last week I received a great new from Rick Vanover. I have been selected for the Veeam Vanguard program for the second year! Honored and proud to be selected as a Veeam Vanguard 2017 then congratulations to all the returning and new Vanguards. 🙂

What is “Veeam Vanguard” program?

Veeam Vanguard

The Veeam Vanguard program is a selection of experts (Top 50 Veeam Influencers worldwide) that Veeam Software has considered relevant to promote the values of Veeam (understand the products and are closest peers in IT). This program will be both much like other award programs you may be familiar with yet different in our own way (for example Microsoft “MVP” community). Some Vanguards are bloggers, partners, customers, influencers others are very active users (Veeam forum), others are Spiceworks where users share content and answers about Veeam etc. Veeam Vanguards are people who embrace Veeam the best in their respective communities. They come from all backgrounds and are spread across different products. Anthony Spiteri (Evangelist at Veeam) announced: “this year we have 62 members at last count and as a former member of the Vanguard’s I can tell you that we, in the Technical Product Marketing team are looking forward to helping the 2017 crop get the most out of the program“. The best way to follow Veeam Vanguards is to follow the official Twitter account @VeeamVanguard and hashtag #VeeamVanguard.
