What is “Veeam Vanguard” program?

Veeam Vanguard

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. The best way to follow Veeam Vanguards is to follow the official Twitter account @VeeamVanguard and hashtag #VeeamVanguard.

My story and 2018 overview:

I’m a Global Technologist working in the Infrastructure & Network team at Monaco Digital Service – Avangarde. I’m currently focused on Data Protection and Governance. Author at (Editions ENI), Veeam Certified Engineer and recognized as an international Veeam Expert with Veeam Vanguard award. I have been sharing my experience and knowledge since 2014 through Training, Publications and Public Speaking at workshops and webinars. I’m the Author of the blog mainly focused on Data Protection & Governance, Security, Backup and Disaster Recovery solutions. I have been working as Team Leader & Project Management Officer for Monaco Digital – Avangarde (Veeam Gold Partner in Monaco – France). I am responsible for generating Veeam content, evangelism, designing and production, and presenting at events. My function is also to support and strengthen the local sales teams and Channel aggregators dedicated to this market. I have experience in designing and managing IT services needed by companies to support their business. Proof that the company’s growth is in full swing. Thanks to effective marketing, the company has seen steadily rising sales for 3 years! Special thanks to my mate @Barbara, she did a very amazing work! Basically, its an amazing experience working together (#DreamTeam). Thanks to sales and production teams, also to the head management for this trust. Proud to work here and helping them grow their businesses. One goal in 2019: Trying to expand the company and become more competitive! 🙂


Last year, I have written an article about Data Protection in French for “SMART DSI” magazine (Edition 2018, September). This is a French IT magazine intended for IT Manager and Business Manager. The topic is “Data Protection – Think Differently”. Basically, the article is written in French. As you know Data is the engine of Digital Transformation. It is the lifeblood of applications, the currency of business, the beating heart of digital life.
