Veeam Agent for Linux +VBR = Veeam Agent for Linux +VBR

Veeam Agent for Linux +VBR = Veeam Agent for Linux +VBR

Since technically I’m in a marketing department, I see this “Veeam + Anything = Better Together” beeing overused. Hence the name of the post: sometimes Something + Something is just Something + Something. Anyway, let’s talk integrations. Veeam Agent for Linux comes with an integration with Veeam Backup and Replication (and even Enterprise Manager if you’re big enough). You don’t even need a paid license to use it; it works in any version of VAL. However, there’s a trick: You can’t…

DK is a vExpert! vExpert vs VeeamVanguard smackdown (not really)

DK is a vExpert! vExpert vs VeeamVanguard smackdown (not really)

I got on the list of vExperts, so that’s cool. As a coordinator of a community program here at Veeam it would be interesting to see what the other program offers, to be on the other side if the fence, sorta. Ah, for those who came here to see the smackdown – sorry, it was just a click bait, I have nothing to compare yet=) But you can read something here, for example: The Most Magical Time of Year: Influencer…

Veeam Vanguard Part 2: What it’s NOT

Veeam Vanguard Part 2: What it’s NOT

Hello, %username%, DK here. In the first part, I explained what a Veeam Vanguard program is. Now it’s time for a second part. I’m sure it’s a more important one: what this program is NOT. It’s not a rain check “If you make me a Vanguard, I’ll be posting more about Veeam” doesn’t work here. We award people for the PAST year of spreading the word, not for a future one. It’s fine to start working towards getting an award and…

Veeam Vanguard Part 1: WTH is this?

Veeam Vanguard Part 1: WTH is this?

Hey, casual internet viewers, DK here. If you happen to read my blog or know me personally, you are aware that I’m one of the people behind the Veeam Vanguard Program. Among many other things, I’m developing the system of candidate evaluation and do the results reports. Just now (January, 10th, 5 pm) I’ve finished the review of the new nominees for Veeam Vanguard 2017, and that is the reason for this post. I suspect it will be valid every…

Backup your Linux system via Powershell. WHAT?!

Backup your Linux system via Powershell. WHAT?!

  Sorry. Ahem. Anyway. Yesterday I found out that Powershell can invoke SSH commands to Linux machines. And that’s bonkers, you can control your Linux system and leverage PS functionality together. Let’s see how you deal with it. Adding SSH capabilities to Powershell Microsoft once promised us to add OpenSSH to Powershell, we still didn’t get it. But whatever, we have an alternative called Posh-SSH. All you need is love the command:

After that connect to your Linux machine…

New Veeam 9.5 Hidden Gems

New Veeam 9.5 Hidden Gems

Hey, Veeam-lovers. DK here. It’s a very busy with releases week: vSphere 6.5, Fantastic Beasts and Whatever, and of course Veeam 9.5 And since all vSphere features have been already explained and I have zero interest in the new Harry Potter movie, let’s focus on Veeam stuff. The “What’s New” file is ELEVEN pages, which is not bad for a “dot” release. And the first hidden gem is….the INSTALL button. Well, it’s not hidden, but not very obvious. Many people didn’t…

VMCAWS or VMware Cloud on AWS

VMCAWS or VMware Cloud on AWS

  VMCAWS… Well, probably I’m not very good at shortening the names… Hello, DK online. Heard the news? VMware partnered with AWS to help you with building a hybrid cloud. In a couple words: you can run your on-premises VMware infrastructure (vSphere, VSAN, and NSX) on Amazon’s cloud. As you see from the picture, you’ll be able to manage your on-prem and SDDC deployment from vSenter. That’s pretty much the idea of a “hybrid cloud” if you’ve heard the word…
