18h45 – 19u30: The Veeam Hardened Repository Deep Dive by Didier Van Hoye (Microsoft MVP)

With Veeam Backup & Replication V11 and higher, Veeam introduced the hardened (Linux) repository. These backups are your failsafe against ransomware, wipers, and internal threats. We’ll explain why you need it, set it up, and dive under the hood to show how it gets the job done. Your Hyper-V nodes, Hyper-V clusters, S2D clusters, Azure Stack HCI deployments, and any other hypervisor (VMware) and supported backup (NAS/File Shares) can now be end to end protected by immutability. That gives you that extra security you might need to recover from a ransomware event.
