In the famous words of the great Will Smith aka the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air “Bienvenidos a Miami.” Next week at the Fontainebleau Hotel Cisco will be a proud premier sponsor at VeeamON, Veeam’s premier conference for cloud data management.

Protecting your most Critical Data

According to IDC’s 2017 Data Age report, nearly 20% of the data in the global datasphere will become critical to our daily lives. On top of that 10% of that data will be hypercritical. That means that enterprises are facing increasing risks from data loss. Veeam’s most recent availability report shows that 82% of enterprises are facing gaps in what their users demand and what IT can actually deliver.

These gaps can mean a disruption in application availability and the inability to access data, costing enterprises on average nearly $21M. This, in turn, means that companies deserve solutions that allow them to stay competitive, improve agility and help them ultimately protect their brand.

Since the last VeeamON in Chicago, Cisco and Veeam have worked together to further integrate our technologies to ensure our customers receive an enterprise-grade, highly available data protection and recovery solution for Cisco HyperFlex and an end-to-end, modernized, protected platform for SAP HANA.

Long story short, our teams have been hard at work, both developing and testing new integrations while preparing for a great trip to Miami.

We’re headed to Miami

So… Why are we so excited about VeeamON this year? No, it’s not to visit one of the 800 parks located in Miami or even the world’s largest collection of Art-Deco architecture that makes up the city. Obviously, it’s so that we can get our hands on a delicious Cuban sandwich. Ok, not really. Let’s get serious.

We look forward to the opportunity to meet with our customers and partners about all the great possibilities. If you’re attending, you should be excited! If you’re not, you can still find out everything you need to know by visiting our digital hub.

Alright, for those that are spending time with us cooling down between trips to the oceanfront you can join us for all these fun opportunities:

  • Come by Cisco Booth 105 and speak to your Cisco Data Center Experts
  • Attend our breakout session “The Anywhere Data Center, and How to Protect it With Cisco and Veeam.” On Tuesday, May 21st at 10:20am ET
  • Stream our live Cube session on Wednesday, May 22nd at 10am ET and learn what’s new with Cisco and Veeam
  • And much more (I’m not kidding click here to find out)

Don’t Forget the Giveaways

Now that you’ve made it to the end of the blog, I should mention that we are excited to give away some great prizes. Yes, I said prizes. In the booth will be a custom Cisco Lego data center where you can build your own Lego figurine and take some really cool pictures. Then stick around until the end of the day when we will be raffling off lightsabers.

Again, we are really excited to see everyone in Miami, and in the meantime, everything you need to know about all the amazing work between Cisco and Veeam can be found on our digital hub.
