Veeam Sure Backup: Pre-release Interview with Doug Hazelman

So what has Veeam got under wraps that is creating such a stir at moment?  A new technology that they claim “will change the way you look at VMware Backup. Forever.”  That’s a pretty big claim but from the positive feedback from the industry analysts who they’ve already shared this secret with I get the feeling they are about to announce something big!

What better way to try and get a sneak preview into what Veeam Sure Backup maybe about than by talking with the Veeam’s Director of the Global Systems Engineering Group, Doug Hazelman.  In this interview Doug gives an overview on how Sure Backup will fit with Veeam’s existing backup product, Veeam Backup & Replication and what we can expect to see and not see at Monday’s new ‘technology’ announcement (22nd March 2010).  Check out the audio interview by clicking on the play button below.

  1. I am SO excited about this release… Hope it’s something useful for everyone and nothing you have to pay heaps of cash to benifit from. Their products aren’t THAT exphensive to begin with compared to other similar wendors, so let’s cross our fingers and hope for the best! 🙂
