Yes, I was nominated Veeam Vanguard 2022 for the fifth year. It is the fifth year that I have been honored to be selected Veeam Vanguard since 2018.
Just some quick notes about the Veeam Vanguard program.
What is the Veeam Vanguard program?
“The Veeam Vanguard Program is Veeam’s top-level influencer community. This group shares points of view, provides feedback, and is committed to mutual success. Experts in the Vanguard program are a combination of many different disciplines, contribution types, and advocacy mechanisms yet are each the best in space regarding technical thought leadership for the technical communities in which Veeam exist.
These individuals have been nominated as Veeam Vanguards. A Veeam Vanguard represents our brand to the highest level in many of the different technology communities in which we engage. These individuals are chosen for their acumen, engagement and style in their activities on and offline.”
Veeam’s goals of the Vanguard Program:
- Build mindshare of technical thought leaders
- Gain feedback and insight on topics related to Veeam technologies
- Provide opportunities for growth
The Veeam Vanguards have an opportunity to gain the following:
- Access to Veeam Product teams
- A forum to provide feedback and perspective
- Sharing of unique perspectives in the industry and exclusive networking opportunities
This Veeam Vanguard has changed my professional career. Great things have happened since I am Veeam Vanguard and a vExpert (another great vCommunity program).
A big thanks to all the team responsible for this tremendous vCommunity program.

Congrats to all new Veeam Vanguards, and also for the renewals.

This is the first time a war messes with me like this, I don’t know why, but it does. Maybe because is near and just at our door… maybe because we thought this type of war and aggression against democratic countries was something from the past… maybe because this fanatic imperialism is something that we should worry about a lot and something from XIX and XX century… maybe because the all world can be at war when fanatics and idiots have the power for to do so.
