Veeam Vanguard program:

A Veeam Vanguard represents Veeam brand to the highest level in many of the different technology communities in which they engage. Since 2015, Veeam Software has considered relevant to promote the values of Veeam (understand the products and are closest peers in IT). This program is both much like other award programs you may be familiar with yet different in their own way (for example Microsoft MVP, VMware vExpert Cisco Champion 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 approximately 60 members at last count and as a former member of the Vanguard’s I can tell you that we, in the Veeam Product Strategy team are looking forward to helping the 2018 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.
