Greetings friends, some time ago I told you all the advantages that the tool Draw.io has, including being able to access from any browser, but also including a desktop version that is the one I use every day. Today I bring you a step further, as the tool comes with many standard packages with forms, but Veeam, which has updated its icon package for Microsoft Visio not long ago, has also updated Draw.io, offering all the experience of the sub-categories with all the new icons, let's see them.
Greetings friends, VMworld 2018 in its version of Europe has already finished, and although I still write about the announcements and news announced or presented, today I bring you how to download all Breakout sessions of this VMworld 2018 Europe as I told you how to do it for the sessions of VMworld 2018 US.
GitHub project with all sessionsAs every year, William Lam leaves us the GitHub repository with the necessary links to be able to undertake our objective. However, this year is different, because he added the links to the stream and to the .mp4 as well. One of the things I enjoy the most during the year is to be able to use the sessions when I go by subway, or if I have to fly somewhere, so I leave you the GitHub repository I have created and William's backup (since if you use William's you don't download the session names), with the sessions and their links to the.mp4 directly:
OPTION 1 - Using Firefox quantum and Download Star to download all sessionsIf we use Firefox Quantum, we can use the extension called Download Star, which you can find here:

Greetings friends, as many of you know Veeam includes for free Veeam Enterprise Manager in the Enterprise or Enterprise Plus editions. Veeam Enterprise Manager is a web portal that administrators, or delegated users, can access to perform different recovery operations, or for example create DataLabs requests as well. I decided to create this Blog to cover all the operations we can do from Enterprise Manager, since it has so many that it really looks like a Swiss Army Knife, let's go!
Administration, management and execution of the Works of VeeamOnce we connect to our Veeam Enterprise Manager, we can see the option called JOBS, from here we can perform several operations, let's see them all.
Start, stop, retry and advanced options of Veeam jobs.From here we will be able to launch the works of Copy, or Replica, or SureBackup, etc. Also stop them and retry them:
Greetings friends, I haven't written much about Veeam Availability Orchestrator yet, and that's going to change soon, today I start with an advanced entry and later we'll come back with the basics. One of the amazing things Veeam Availability Orchestrator allows us is to include additional steps in our Disaster Recovery plan. Talking to a customer I said to him if he would like to receive Slack notifications when a job is running, and have a brief summary in Slack too once the job finishes, of course he loved the idea, today we'll see the steps necessary to get it up and running.
How to activate an Incoming WebHook in Slack to send simple notificationsDepending on the amount of WebHooks you have available in your Slack channels, this will work or give you an error, simply go to this link:
Greetings friends, I have been lucky enough to attend two of the three NimbleStorage Connect User Groups that have been held in the UK, the three cities chosen were Manchester, Bristol and London, in my case I have attended and presented in Bristol and Manchester. I have to thank the HPE people for inviting Veeam to these User Groups to have the opportunity to talk about the integration of Veeam and Nimble Storage, especially Nick Dyer, a fireproof Nimble Storage since its inception.
Some images of the NimbleStorage Connect User GroupsIn this tweet we can see the room in Bristol, with a full house and a luxurious location, we had the opportunity to see many interesting presentations, Roadmap of NimbleStorage and live demos of InfoSight: https://twitter.com/Nick_Dyer_/status/1052173364155035648 In London we had a massive attendance, with another absolute full room, in which I was lucky to see that 90% of attendees were already using Veeam together with Nimble Storage, so my presentation was more about good practices: https://twitter.com/jorgedlcruz/status/1052849995601326081
Greetings friends, today I bring you a very interesting entry, it is about how to create a Virtual Tape Library or VTL, so we can use it virtually with for example Veeam. And thus be able to emulate a real tape library. The objectives of installing a VTL in these modern days can be: or simply to learn how to manage, perform tests and so on in our labs, could also be considered a safer way to save Veeam files (.vbk) flat on a disk, because with the VTL, creates that tape emulation that is more difficult to access and break, and finally could be used to re-use for example those old servers that we have and we want to give a last use as an archive repository using this safer VTL methodology. For this lab I am going to use QUADStor, which is a product that I think is brilliant, besides being free and available for CentOS and Debian, among its functionalities I would like to highlight:
- Emulate tape libraries such as ADIC, HP, IBM and many more
- Emulate tapes from HP, IBM, Quantum and many more
- Access Fibre Channel, iSCSI, Infinibandy of course local SCSI
- Data deduplication
- VTL Replication
- Import/Export physical tapes
- Tape Encryption
- Linear Tape File System (LTFS) Support
Greetings everyone, a few weeks ago Nick Furnell and myself did a live session about everything you want to know about Backup in 60 Minutes or less. Having a data backup and recovery plan is important to the overall success of your business. Without one, your business can suffer from permanent data loss, massive downtime, and unnecessary expenses. Even if you think your data is safe, a tragedy can strike at any time. Watch this recording of the whiteboard and learn everything you always wanted to know about backup. I hope you find it interesting, and feedback it is always welcome.
Greetings friends, long ago I told you about the benefits of Veeam Cloud Connect, and since then I know that there are many of you who have become one of them. At the same time I know the problems when monitoring the components, and the tenants in a precise way, that's why today I bring you this post to see how to monitor Veeam Cloud Connect with Veeam ONE.
Veeam ONE Monitor - Monitor the status of Veeam Cloud Connect componentsThe first thing we want to monitor is the state of the components, such as repositories, cloud connect gateways, etc. Let's see all of them, from our Veeam ONE Monitor, we'll add the Veeam Cloud Connect server: Once we leave it a few minutes collecting information, we can see all the information, for example, a quick look at the status of the Backup Repository:
Greetings friends, today I bring you another one of those hidden gems that you like so much. In addition to being free and being able to display it in a few minutes, it has a potential that many commercial tools would like. Today we are about to create four fresh Grafana Dashboards within minutes, at the end of the blog, we can have some Dashboards (in plural friends) similar to these: vSphere Overview Dashboard
