Veeam Technical Training – Knowledge is power

March 1, 2011 — 2 Comments

Today Veeam have announced their new partner accreditation program. This wouldn’t be something I usually would cover on my blog, but as part of the new accreditation comes new training resources available for sales and technical professionals.

Ricky El-Qasem Director of Global Education Services at Veeam and fellow London VMUG Member / vExpert asked me if I would be willing to help with the testing stages of the new technical training. In my role I have taken many pre-sales and online technical courses / exams and I thought I knew what to expect. Usually these type of training exercises are a number of slides, more of an overview than any real technical information.

I was amazed with the amount of detail that Ricky had put into the new technical sales training, as well as the important pre-sales information the was a lot of information of the design aspects and videos covering installation and management of all of Veeam products.

Once started I got a bit addicted and completed all the courses and quizzes in a weekend, and become the first person outside Veeam to achieve their Technical Sales Accreditation.

Congratulations to Ricky and Veeam for introducing such a high level of training and recognising the importance of training it’s partners. If you are lucky enough to work for one of Veeam’s many partners be sure to check out the training in the Veeam University.

      Hi Rick,I have Veeam Backup 5.0.2 running on stoalndane Windows 2008 R2 64Bit server.The server is directly attached to SAN through SAS cables, there is nothing between the SAN and the Server. The VMFS LUN’s are visible in Disk Manager. Everytime I try to run Backup using the Direct SAN Access it always fails over to network. Any ideas why this happens?
