Advanced vSphere Backup Tips, Automation and Practices by Veeam
One of the most important things about a vSphere environment today is having data and systems available in the event of any situation. In this VMUG session, hear from a Senior Veeam Technologist who will outline advanced tips for backup, recovery and testing of vSphere environments. Leveraging scripts, advanced vSphere constructs and VMware Cloud on AWS will be covered in this session. Takeaways: - Tips for backup design of vSphere environments - Tips for leveraging scripts in vSphere and Veeam environments - Tips for leveraging VMware Cloud on AWS for backup, DR and migration.

VMware NSX native security capabilities, automation and extensibility framework are leveraged by Check Point to dynamically insert, deploy and orchestrate advanced security services inside the Software-Defined Data Center. Network isolation and segmentation inherent to the NSX platform enable feasible micro-segmentation, allowing the SDDC to deliver a fundamentally more secure approach to data security. Policy is enforced at the virtual interface, and security policies follow workloads.

The integration of Check Point CloudGuard with NSX brings consistent policy management and enforcement of advanced security protections automatically deployed and dynamically orchestrated into software-defined data center environments. CloudGuard provides industry-leading threat prevention security to keep data centers protected from even the most sophisticated threats. Fully integrated multi-layered security protections include:

  • Stateful Firewall, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Antivirus and Anti-Bot technology to protect data centers against lateral movement
  • SandBlast Zero-Day Protection sandbox technology provides the most advanced protection against malware and zero-day attacks
  • Application Control to help prevent application layer Denial of Service (DoS) attacks and by that protect the software defined data center
  • Data Loss Prevention protects sensitive data from theft or unintentional loss


Free public parking is available in any of the lots colored pink.


Enter through elevator lobby 2 in the the northwest corner of the stadium (pink arrow) where a security guard will be waiting to direct you to the event.
