Veeam just released their Backup Academy – a vendor neutral virtualization backup training program. This is, primarily, a theory-based program that covers topics like why virtualization backups are different, virtualization backup integrity, as well as best practices for VMware & Hyper-V Backups. I created two of the lessons in that program along with other experts like Elias Khnaser, Greg Shields, Rick Vanover, and Eric Siebert.
The two lessons that I created as part of the 8 lesson course are below. You can watch all 8 lessons at the Backup Academy website.
