Hi, today I received a great new from Nikola Pejkova. I have been selected for the Veeam Vanguard program for the 6th year! Honored and proud to be selected as a Veeam Vanguard 2021 then congratulations to all the returning and new Vanguard! 🙂
What is “Veeam Vanguard” program?
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.

Veeam benefits of Vanguards:
Some of the benefits of being Veeam Vanguards are:
Two years ago, I participated in “VeeamON” in Miami and Vanguards Summit for Vanguards global meeting.
Due to concerns around the coronavirus, I think all physical events will be complicated to maintain, especially VeeamON. I feel the health & safety of customers is more important & we should focus on keeping free of the virus. Take care.
