On Miami Beach with sun glasses

I attended this year's VeeamON event in Miami last month, after being invited as a Veeam Vanguard to speak.

I flew in on Miami International airport (MIA) via Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Sunday with KLM and had an uneventful flight (which are the best flights), arriving at the FontaineBleau hotel around four PM. By that time, the pool looked fantastic from the room and I decided to walk to South Beach as it was a rather cloudy day.

On Monday morning I met up with a couple of the other Veeam Vanguards attending the event. We decided to have breakfast at Denny's. With six hours time difference for most of us, we treated this meal as lunch. From there, Luis Freixas and I walked back to the FontaineBlue hotel to try and burn off some of the calories. We had plenty of time to exchange ideas while we enjoyed this beautiful day from the Miami Beach Boardwalk.

VeeamON kicked off officially on Tuesday. I attended sessions and enjoyed the morning. At 1:30 PM, I sat down with several attendees to discuss to discuss backing up data in Microsoft 365.

Thank you! Thumbs up

Thank you to the VeeamON organization for organizing yet another successful event and inviting me as a speaker, to the Veeam 100 Community people, to all my community friends and, of course, to the people sitting in on the session and, of course, the people with whom I had interesting discussions.
