Datacore Update with Emulex 12000 HBA might end up in BSOD

Two year old bug still not fixed

Today I’ve updated a Datacore-Cluster from SanSymphony10  PSP6 U1 to PSP6 U4. In the past we had issues with updating DataCore-Emulex drivers during the update process.

Veeam Endpoint Backup heißt jetzt Veeam Agent for Windows 2.0

Veeam ist der Platzhirsch unter den Backup Lösungen, wenn es um die Sicherung Virtueller Maschinen geht – sowohl auf Hyper-V, als auch auf Vmware vSphere.

VeeamON2017 – Goodbye New Orleans

See you in Chicago

Thank you all who attended the convention in NOLA for the great time. Kudos to all members of the Veeam Team who helped making this event possible.

What a great experience to come together with all you Veeam geeks. In the last 3 days we’ve had a good time with all of you. Especially with the group from Germany, Austria, France, the US and Australia (no worries about the beer on my shoes, mate!) 😉

The next VeeamON will be held in Chicago between May 12th and May 17th 2018. Hope to see you there again.
