The ANZ Region’s Premier Availability event took place in Sydney and Auckland last month, where a crowd of nearly 800 people across both markets gathered to network with thought leaders and IT professionals to discuss the latest trends in data centre modernisation using virtualisation, storage and cloud technologies. The conference comprised of all the best content, insights and speakers from the global VeeamON event that occurred in May in New Orleans.
VeeamON Forum attendees were given the chance to learn from industry leaders, participate in breakout sessions, technical speaking sessions and hear from global Veeam speakers. Company Co-CEO and President, Peter McKay made an appearance at the event, all the way from the US and local alliance partner sponsors took stage for the business and technical speaking sessions. Keynote speaker, Adam Fraser took the stage too, chatting about the significance of disrupting the status quo and staying ahead of innovation in this rapidly changing world.
