Veeam Vanguard 2020 – Three Years In

I was a part of the Veeam Vanguard program for the past two years in 2018-2019 with the hopes of another renewal for the 2020 year.  Applications opened up for the 2020 year, and this time, it was all based on your application, whereas previous years, you could have others nominate you.  I had been very active and remain active with the Veeam space promoting the product, blogging, Twitter, E-Newspaper, etc.

So I filled out the application with examples of all my activities throughout the year in the hopes I would be accepted.  After applying to wait is the hard part for that email indicating you are in or out.

So based on my post as you can imagine, I was accepted for a third year into one of the best evangelist programs out there – Veeam Vanguard.

To be part of such a great group that got trimmed down this year has been great.  This program is one of the best out there for promoting the Veeam products and giving insight to the Veeam Team.

You can read about it here –

My blog has been on a track where I want it to be as work-related things kept me as well as busy family life, but this year will be more content on Veeam and other products.  I look forward to bringing more articles to everyone.

Until next time.

vExpert 2020 – I’m In!

To start off the 2020 year I decided to apply to the vExpert program to see if I would be accepted.  I was unsure at the time if I had done enough throughout the year to qualify myself, so after submitting my application I waited.

This week on Monday I received a great email indicating that I was accepted into the vExpert program.

I have always wanted to be part of this program since already being a Veeam Vanguard (2018/2019).  As outlined on the vExpert Application Portal the program and benefits are really great –

Program Overview

The VMware vExpert program is VMware’s global evangelism and advocacy program. The program is designed to put VMware’s marketing resources towards your advocacy efforts. Promotion of your articles, exposure at our global events, co-op advertising, traffic analysis, and early access to beta programs and VMware’s roadmap. The awards are for individuals, not companies, and last for one year. Employees of both customers and partners can receive the awards. In the application, we consider various community activities from the previous year as well as the current year’s (only for 2nd half applications) activities in determining who gets awards. We look to see that not only were you active but are still active in the path you chose to apply for.


If you are interested in becoming a vExpert the criteria is simple. We are looking for IT Professionals who are sharing their VMware knowledge and contributing that back to the community. The term “giving back” is defined as going above and beyond your day job. There are several ways to share your knowledge and engage with the community. Some of those activities are blogging, book authoring, magazine articles, CloudCred task writing, active in Facebook groups, forum (VMTN as well as other non-VMwar) platforms, public speaking, VMUG leadership, videos and so on.

How to apply for vExpert

The process to apply is easy, twice per calendar year we open applications for a period of 30 days. Once the 30 days are over we close the applications and start voting which takes 30 to 45 days. Applications open for each calendar year in November / December and results are announced in February. We open applications again which we refer to 2nd half applications in June with an August announcement. Every vExpert, VCDX as well as any new applicants must apply at least once per year.

vExpert Program Benefits

My 2020 Certification Goals – VMware Focused

Now that we are into the year 2020 it is time to start down the road to new certifications.  2019 was a light year for me as I completed VMCE-ADO and that was about it for certification due to work projects and family life.

This year my goals are high but I will try to achieve as many of these as I can –

  1. VCP-DCA 2020 – I need to upgrade my VCP to the latest version by taking the Delta exam.  It should not be that difficult to do.
  2. VCP-NV – I have taken the ICM course for NSX and have the VCP6-NV Official Study Guide but have not used or played with the software.  Now working at a Cloud Provider we will be using NSX in the future so time to set up my home lab with this and getting hands on to then take the exam afterward when I am fully comfortable.  This exam is much different than the DCA track.
  3. VCAP-DCA/DCD – I am hoping to take the 2020 VCAP exams this year to then get my VCIX.  This is a stretch and if I can do the DCA that will make me happy with the DCD as the cherry on top.
  4. Windows 2016/2019 – Shooting for getting my MCSA for the 2016/2019 track as my last certification goal for this year.  If I get to this one great if not no biggie.

Well with my list ready to go it is time to hit the books, blogs, sites, etc. to find information for study and practice questions.  There is a ton of information out there and I just need Google to help me find it.

Until my next post on Certification where I hope to update on some of these and if I have been able to achieve them.

Things You Need to Know About Office 365 Backup

We are in a digital age. An age where more than half of the industries, as well as the governments, are embracing a cloud-first approach to drive innovation, performance, optimize cost and enhance security. Yet, with this modern data-driven approach comes the challenge of data protection.

In my 24 years of experience in IT wearing different hats – ranging from Technical Support, Network Administration, Consulting and Infrastructure Architecture and now a Senior Engineer, I have gained experience in dealing with the most critical situations when it comes to backup and recovery – ones that have been nerve-wracking and exposed organizations to the risk of losing revenue as well as reputation in the industry.

While some organizations acknowledge this as an impending issue that requires attention, sometimes they lack the education to execute a data protection strategy that can save them from potential data loss. According to ‘Veeam’s Cloud Data Management Report, lost data from mission-critical application downtime costs organizations $102,450 per hour, on average.

On a similar note, most businesses have opted for SaaS products simply because this modern approach offers several advantages over the traditional software systems and the consumption models associated with them. The increased availability of cloud infrastructure and resources has eliminated the need to set-up, maintain and support infrastructure and brought the concept of resiliency to light. One such technology that delivers immense value to an organization is Microsoft Office 365.

Did you know that by the end of Q3 FY19, there were 180 Million Monthly Active Office 365 users? I ‘t think any corporation can imagine a day without Office 365. Neither do I. Hands down, this data is huge. According to 451 research, Office 365 emails and documents shared and stored in SharePoint, OneDrive and Teams are the “New business-critical data.”

But the real question is, in the event of a disaster such as accidental deletion, malicious attacks including ransomware or internal security threats:

Does Office 365 include backup?

Yes and no. Just like any other SaaS vendor focuses on protecting its infrastructure to meet its contractual service level agreements, Microsoft follows the same route. This protection, however, does not extend to the customer, and ‘it’s the customers’ responsibility to be proactive in backing up data. While Office ‘365’s SharePoint and OneDrive offer data archiving workflows, this is not a complete solution to address the problem of accidental deletion. Once a file is permanently deleted, there is no way of recovering it again.

Let me explain to you this BIG misconception in more detail.

There is an assumption that if the data is in SaaS, we don’t have to worry about it simply because we rely on the vendor for backing it up. But that is not the case. And neither it is with Office 365.

With a Microsoft Office 365 license, here’s what you get:

  • Access to the suite of Office 365 business apps on infrastructure, that you ‘don’t have to maintain at all. Good one – check!
  • Access to a recycle bin with a retention period of 30 days in Exchange Online, 93 days for SharePoint Online. So, if you delete a file – it goes directly into the recycle repository from where you can restore it. Another good one – at least you have some days to save it back.
  • Full infrastructure level security – meaning, application level, logical and user/admin-level access control. Not bad because it saves you the pain of managing these apps on-premise.
  • In-Geo data redundancy and replication in at least two geographically distributed data center locations – often mistaken for backup.

Now here’s what you miss with Microsoft Office 365:

  • Data level security which means, that in the event of accidental permanent deletion ‘it’s your responsibility.
  • Full data retention, which exceeds the temporary recycle bin allocation of 30/93 days based on your subscription. This means – hyper availability is simply what your organization must manage. If you miss the window, you cannot recover in time.

Do you need to backup O365?

Yes, you need to backup Office 365. Despite the recovery options that Microsoft provides, you need to have full control of your data. With a backup, your data is independent of the cloud platform and managed by a set of tools that offer more sophisticated and granular recovery, security and governance around e-discovery and privacy-based laws with new ground rules in place.

This post covers even more detail around the need to backup Office 365 for your organization.

The Road Ahead

Fast access, fast recovery and hyper-availability are not just trends or jargon. They are every ‘organizations’ concern, period. Backups ensure peace of mind in an unforeseen event. Here are my two cents on this situation:

  • Security and compliance drive the need to keep a copy of your data. Most businesses can be left unprotected due to misinterpretation of the safety of data on the cloud.
  • Backup consistency will streamline organizational efficiency and minimize any overhead.
  • The ability to airgap a backup repository that stores Office 365 data will take security to the next level. This means no one other than your service provider can have access to these backups – making them safe from ransomware.

VMCE-ADO – My Exam Review & Tips

To round out 2019, I was able to sit the VMCE-A1 exam on December 20, 2019, and managed to pass it on my first try with 83%.

The VMCE-A1: Design & Optimization V1 (VMCE-A1) exam is the second requirement to acquire the Veeam Certified Architect (VMCA) designation after you have taken the VMCE-A: Design & Optimization V1 training. Compared to the VMCE exam, it is more costly (USD 300) as it’s also a higher level of exam.

The exam must be taken at a Pearson VUE local testing facility with a time of 70 minutes and an additional 30 minutes if your native language is not English.

This exam includes 40 randomized questions from each of the course modules:

1. Design and sizing
2. Infrastructure assessment
3. Security
4. Optimization
5. Automation
6. Audit and compliance
7. Troubleshooting

ALL the Veeam Availability Suite™ is covered, so expect many questions on Veeam ONE.

The exam itself is not similar to the VMware VCAP design type exams. With this exam, the questions are all multiple choice with some items requiring more than one answer (which noted on each question – number of responses needed). Each question is less than 2 minutes to answer based on the time, but this is not something to be concerned about if prepared well.

The VMCE-A1 exam pass gets awarded to those who score 70% or higher. With many questions being multiple choice it used to be that you got one answer wrong, you failed the entire question. Well, that is not the case now as you can be awarded partial marks for questions even if you have to pick 2-3 answers and get 1-2 wrong. This partial marking now makes things somewhat easier to help you in passing the exam.

How to Prepare?

Everything comes from the course material! Including the textbook and handouts, which are the most crucial things to read over (more than once).

For the troubleshooting section – there are examples of log files (pay attention to these) and also throughout the textbook are references to KB articles on the Veeam website. Also, be sure to check out and read over the Best Practices website as well – [link]

For the Design & Sizing section – be sure to note down the formulas from the textbook/handouts as they will come in handy for the exam. If you can memorize them, my first suggestion when sitting down for the exam is to write them down on the dry erase board given by the testing center (take the Tutorial on the exam at the beginning – hint).

Infrastructure Assessment, as well as Audit & Compliance sections – these sections are the ones that take in to account Veeam ONE. Complete a review of the reports as well as what they are for, what they contain, etc.  These things will help with this section of the exam.

Be aware that most people are very familiar with VMware, but for this exam, Hyper-V is very much a part of it. If you know one or the other very well, be sure to brush up and read over the sections that relate to the Hypervisor you are not as familiar. In my case, I reviewed the Hyper-V sections and information more thoroughly than VMware.

The course taken was based on v9.5 of the products and was online through Global Knowledge. The instructor was – Chris Huss, who was excellent. Also, Global Knowledge records the classes for you to watch them later, which I highly recommend as well since most instructors will point out things that “might” be on the exam.

My last tip is this, which helped me allot on the exam – if there is a question you are unsure of, then mark it for review, even if you think you know the answer. Then when done, the exam review only the marked ones, and if you have time, do a full review of all questions. This process is how I completed my exam as I was done all the questions in about 30 minutes or so, then went back to review the “Marked” ones only and finally did a full review of all questions to be sure. I finished with about 2 minutes to go and let the time expire.

So to be fully prepared –

1. Take the course at a recommended training facility or online
2. Read the textbook several times – CRITICAL
3. Read the handouts several times and make notes as there is room for this if printed
4. Review the noted KB articles in both the textbook and handouts
5. Go through the Best Practice website – [URL]
6. Ensure you know the formulas for anything and everything
7. Relax and have fun with the exam as it is not as stressful as you would think

Drop me a line if you have any other questions or to let me know how your exam went. Best of luck to all that challenge and take the exam. #Veeam #VMCE-ADO #VeeamVanguard

VeeamON Virtual 2019 – AGENDA

VeeamON Virtual event will be held on November 20, 2019, and is an online-only event. As noted on the site – VeeamON Virtual 2019

The online event showcases many topics, and there is an Agenda divided into four sections –

    • Vision & Strategy
    • Implementation of Best Practices
    • Cloud-Powered
    • Architecture & Design

Each agenda offers sessions you pick or choose to attend. You can select one topic or participate in multiple sessions.

Some of the sample sessions are as follows:

Vision & Strategy –

Intro: Veeam Predictions 2020

VeeamON Virtual provides the latest insights and predictions for Cloud Data Management. Veeam will highlight predictions that will remain top of mind for 2020, including ones that will affect the backup and Availability markets. Understanding these predictions and preparing for them ahead of time will allow organizations to enhance and optimize their Cloud Data Management practice.

The Biggest IT challenge in 2020 is coming from the board room

Three out of four organizations have a “reality gap” between what business leaders expect from IT and what IT is geared to deliver. This session will examine the industry trends that are causing the gap, how those expectations are driving 2020 challenges and strategy, and give some ideas on how to close the gap from both a technical and an operational perspective.

The Veeam difference: a customer perspective

In this session, Rick Vanover from Veeam will interview Ryan Jacksland on using Veeam products. This customer perspective is critical to gaining insight into the Veeam experience.

Implementation of Best Practices –

VeeamON Virtual Exclusive: Sneak peek to upcoming releases from Veeam

There are many new capabilities that Veeam is bringing to the market. In this session, Melissa Palmer and Karinne Bessette from Veeam Product Strategy will provide an overview of new capabilities you can expect from Veeam in the near future.

The essential guide for physical and cloud data protection

Organizations have data in many different places that all must be made available and resilient. Physical systems and the cloud aren’t exceptions from this requirement. Despite obvious differences, these types of environments are still much alike in terms of data protection, and they demand a proper backup strategy. Luckily, Veeam has an answer to this challenge. Join this session where Andrew is going to showcase how Veeam Agents can play a major role in physical and cloud environments’ data Availability.

5 DR headaches and how to fix them

Disaster isn’t just an IT problem anymore. With the entire business dependent on 24/7 access to IT services, even a small outage can reach far and wide, wreaking havoc on anything in its path. To combat this, organizations must develop and deliver a foolproof disaster recovery (DR) plan that aligns both business and technical requirements and outcomes in order to mitigate risk and minimize the impact. However, doing this is seldom straightforward. Join this session to learn about the five biggest challenges our DR experts hear every day and get tips, tricks and advice on how to overcome them to ensure that your DR plan is fit and ready to go, no matter what the world throws at it.

Winning the war on ransomware: Backup is part of your defense

The war on ransomware continues. Are you doing everything you can to be resilient against this threat? In this session, Rick Vanover and Travis Miller will outline some practical tips and strategies so you can be more resilient and have additional options to avoid data loss.

Veeam’s partnerships explained: API to Z

Partnering with top brands in the IT industry is part of Veeam’s strategy as a company. In this session, attendees will have an overview of the different types of partnerships that Veeam has and how they apply to your organization. David Hill will provide an overview of the different partnership programs (Veeam ProPartner, VCSP, Alliance Partner Program, GSI, VASP and more) that Veeam offers, followed by Travis Miller providing a technical overview of the storage integration capabilities.

3 reasons why a Veeam Universal License makes sense

Licensing may not be the reason you come to Veeam, but we believe it’s another reason you choose to stay with us. As the world needs flexibility and greater choice in their data management strategy, Veeam is enabling that for customers without added fees, taxes or blockers. In this session, we’ll cover how this license came about, how it is used interchangeably across various workloads, and why the improvements make sense and give customers greater choice.

Cloud-Powered –

The case for backing up Office 365 data

Do you truly have complete access and control of your Office 365 data? The common reaction is typical, “Of course I do,” or “Microsoft takes care of that for me.” The reality is that Microsoft protects the underlying infrastructure in Office 365, but customers are still responsible for protecting their own data. For this reason, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 was one of Veeam’s fastest-growing product lines of 2018 and trending towards this again in 2019. In this session, we will cover the six critical reasons for Office 365 backup and the Office 365 Shared Responsibility Model and go through an overall demo of how to back up and recover Office 365 data quickly and seamlessly.

Service Provider BaaS and DRaaS Use Cases

Microsoft Office 365 is not the only data your customers aren’t protecting. Your customers rely on you to have their back, making sure their workloads are protected, regardless of where they reside. Attend this session to learn how you can:

  • Offer backup and intelligent recovery of production workloads residing in your hosted or customer‑owned infrastructure
  • Build enterprise-calibre disaster recovery and data retention, powered by the reliability and affordability of your managed cloud services
  • Expand into new markets with Availability and portability for hyperscale cloud workloads like Microsoft Office 365
Leverage the public cloud to safeguard your backups with Veeam Cloud Tier and Object Storage

In this session, an attendee will discover how they can leverage the public cloud object storage platforms to extend their backup capacity and more. With Veeam Cloud Tier, a scale-out backup repository can now be configured to meet compliance with industry regulations while implementing the critical best practice 3‑2‑1 rule. Come learn more about how Veeam Cloud Tier and Object Storage are changing backup storage forever.

Architecture & Design –

Enterprise applications — How to easily recover your data

Join us to learn about ways that Veeam simplifies backup and adds flexibility to meet recovery objectives for your enterprise workloads. Tap into key insights from the experts on protecting your most critical applications, including SQL, Exchange, Oracle and SAP HANA.

Designing for Veeam at scale

In this session, however, we will show the details behind the numbers. Implementing Veeam Backup & Replication™ is easy — but how can you properly size an environment for thousands of VMs? In this session, we will go over the different roles and components, how the data flows and what calculations, boundaries and obstacles you will encounter. After knowing what you can and will encounter, we will explain step by step through real customer examples and limitations to educate how sizing and design are done properly.

Nutanix Mine — Secondary Storage Simplified

Nutanix Mine is a purpose‑built backup solution that offers all the benefits of Nutanix’s distributed architecture, one‑click simplicity and rapid‑time value, along with Veeam’s robust backup capabilities. Anything that Veeam can back up, Nutanix Mine can back up, including Nutanix AHV, VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper‑V workloads, whether those workloads are running on Nutanix today or traditional infrastructure. Nutanix Mine with Veeam supports the ability to store backups locally on the mine secondary storage or any S3‑compatible object store, whether it’s Nutanix Objects or in the cloud.

I will be joining other Veeam Vanguards in the Q&A section to answer questions during the event.  There will also be plenty of Sponsor related sessions as well in each of the tracks. So if you have some time to spare and want to learn everything, Veeam then attend the VeeamON Virtual event on November 20, 2019.

VMCE-ADO – The Journey Begins (Update – 12/20/19)


I received my VMCE9 back in 2018 and have since not been active to pursue the next level, which is the VMCE-ADO and then grants you the VMCA certification – Veeam Certified Architect. Well, the journey to this certificate begins on Thursday, August 29, 2019, as this is when I start my 2-day class for the VMCE-ADO.

Once I take the course, then I plan to read through the student manual at least twice and use the many resources in the Veeam community from others that have achieved the ADO and created study material for it. Also, there is material from some Veeam Vanguards as well that I received.

Stay tuned as I will update my blog on how I make out and feedback once I take the exam. On to bigger and better things as they say!


I took the VMCE-ADO course last week through Global Knowledge and it was great. You have to wonder how they get everything in within two days but it is possible.

The course goes over everything related to installation, best practices and designing Veeam solutions. It even touches on Veeam ONE as well which was great to see.

I have since printed the textbook to read and review as well as the slide deck which is laid out nicely as it has the slides on the left with room to the right for notes. This is going to be used for a last-minute review prior to the exam so I have all my written notes. I also printed a study guide from a fellow Vanguard to use also which is condensed to the most important points.

Off to study now and hopefully will be writing the test towards the end of the month as I want a week or two for reviewing everything.

I will report back on exam results. Until then!


The exam has been scheduled for December 20th. Time to cram and review as well as do some practice tests. The textbook from class has been read but will read it again. Reading study guides from various Vanguards that wrote the exam and will also use the class slides as note-taking for last-minute cramming.

I will also be reviewing the Best Practice page as per advice from a SA at Veeam.

More to come after the exam so stay tuned!

UPDATE #3 (12/20/2019):

I took the exam today and thankfully I passed with a pretty good score of 83%.  I am going to write a blog on my experience and share some tips & tricks.

Officially a VMCA now and it feels good. 🙂

Stay tuned for that in the coming week!


Veeam Installation – Where do I start?

When getting started with Veeam, it can be a daunting task if you have not had any experience with the product.  The good thing with Veeam is that it is relatively easy to install and get set up for users of all experience levels.  Now the question is, where do you start?

Well, the great thing with Veeam is that they have many resources from Documentation, Best Practices website and the Veeam Forums.


The documentation for Veeam can be found on the Installation media or via the resource web page at – Veeam Backup & Replication – Resources

This page lists User Guides, Evaluation Guides, Administration Guides, and links to other pages like FAQs on Licensing, Support and other things like Recorded Product Demos.

Best Practices Website

The other great page full of useful resources is the Best Practices website located at – Veeam Best Practices

This is one of the most valuable sites to use when getting ready to install Veeam or even better to read before installing.  The site contains many things like –

  • System Requirements – All-in-One System or Separate Components
  • How to calculate out sizing for things like Proxy Servers, Repository Servers, WAN Accelerators, Veeam Backup Server, and even Enterprise Manager Server
  • Infrastructure Hardening – how to ensure a secure backup environment

This is one of the most useful pages to size your environment – Sizing Summary

Veeam Forums

If you are one who prefers to ask questions and interact with other users of Veeam including employees, then the Veeam Forums is the place to visit – Veeam Forums

The Veeam Forums are very well organized and divided mainly into the different products on the main page and then subpages for each main product.

An example of this would be the Veeam Backup & Replication section of the forum –

Further to setting up Veeam the Documentation and Best Practices webpages are also a great place to gather information for studying for the VMCE and VMCE-ADO.  These are the Veeam Certification tracks for their products and are for those that utilize and administer Veeam as well as Design/Architect Veeam solutions.  More information can be found here –

VeeamON 2019 – Backups Premier Event

I have been a Veeam Vanguard for two years now and was fortunate enough to have attended the VeeamON 2017 event in New Orleans, and it was fantastic.  Great sessions, lots of networking and meeting more of the Veeam folks as well as Vanguards.

Being a Vanguard is a real honour, and many people ask me when they see my Veeam Vanguard jacket or shirt – What is Veeam?  My answer is a typical one – it is backup software for your infrastructure for now and the future which then leads to a conversation around technology, backups, and many other things.

This year’s event in Miami looks to build on previous events like New Orleans and Chicago. A party with Flo Rida how can you beat that as well.

Attending VeeamON is one of the best events if you want to learn more about backup and what Veeam is all about. From user sessions, networking and training this event is packed with something for everyone.  Although I am unable to attend this year I will for sure be at the 2020 event and hope to see you all there.
