To the cloud, Alfred! Not so fast, bro.

Hey there, DK here. Everything is relative, you know. I felt it after I attended full-blown MS Ignite and then went to a small community event called TechUnplugged in Amsterdam. Microsoft’s marketing machine can sell a bottle of water to a drowning man, especially when it comes to the cloud. During Ignite I’ve heard a lot about how impressive and disruptive the cloud is. And you know what, I was sold. And I’m not even saying they are lying or…

Yeah-yeah, I’ve been terribly late, but that was an intense week here at Microsoft Ignite 🙃 Hi, ladies and gentlemen, DK here again. Ignite is over, and let me tell you it was good. First of all for those who might not know what it is: it’s a conference from Microsoft presenting their products and services to ~20k people. It’s not like Apple’s with fancy new iPhones, watch bands, and one-more-thing. Ignite 2016 is a technical event for ITPros mostly spinning…

About Veeam 9.5, secret killer feature and heresy

  Hello ladies. And dudes. DK here. 3 days left before the Ignite and 2 days before I board a plane. That’s quite a journey to get from Saint-Petersburg, Russia to Atlanta. 4 hours to Paris, then 10 hours to Atlanta. And 4.5 hours layover. Luckily I missed the latest two seasons of Game of Thrones, so I’ll be entertained enough. Now about 2 cool features of upcoming Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5: First: Integration with Veeam Agent for Linux!…

Hello, human readers and search engine bots. DK here. I recently moved from wordpress.com to a hosted version, so now I can use plugins! Ugh, I didn’t actually realise, how limited the .org version is. But anyway, the use of plugins will let me create a quiz page, and I’m gonna create my own VMCE v9 practice test. There’re quite a few tests out there, but when you are preparing, the more, the better. Especially when it comes to the…

Happy Wednesday, my fellow readers, and casual internet viewers. DK here. Not everyone knows that, despite the fact that Veeam’s HQ is located in Switzerland, the actual location of two main offices is in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. I’m working in one of them, and it is right here (you can even press “view larger map” and check out the street view): The second one is relatively close; others are scattered around the world, and I’ll probably get to them eventually🙂. Occasionally…

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…
