About Veeam, demo labs and ReFS

Hi again, testers of new technologies in your lab (’cause your boss doesn’t want to jump on the bandwagon🙂).  DK here.

I’ve been recently watching some VCP Foundation videos and researching some Microsoft technologies and my question to you is: how the heck can one be an MVP and vExpert at the same time without getting his head exploded?

This week I’m planning on finishing the Veeam’s demo lab and fly to Atlanta for MS Ignite. My part in this lab preparation is mostly setting up Agent For Linux and integration with VBR (yeah, I still remember I have to write something about it).

[Upd] How to backup (and restore) Linux machine using free tools

Hey everyone, DK here.

Back in the days, I remember myself trying Linux for the first time (I think it was Jaunty Jackalope) and screwing up A LOT. Unfortunately, I had no idea about backups as such, so I wasted ages on reinstalling stuff and trying to make it work.

It’s been several years since I stopped using Linux, but now I wanna catch up and start things right – with an ability to back up my machine. Ideally, if an emergency happens I want to be able to restore either certain files from a backup, or perform bare-metal recovery of my entire machine.

I will do 2 blog posts: this post is for those who simply want to back up their machine without playing around with settings and a slightly deeper one where I’ll show the command lines for more advanced tweaking.
