When I left Veeam back in April 2017 I announced that I was taking the summer off to focus on myself and staying home for a bit. The summer turned into Fall and then Winter but I’m happy to say that I’m back in the game again working with CloudBerry and their great set of products. You may notice that CloudBerry has some relation to Veeam, most notable is that Ratmir Timashev (Veeam co-founder) is on their board.
The other great thing about CloudBerry is that a lot of the people have worked together before, going from Aelita to Quest to Veeam and then CloudBerry. It’s great to be working with a familiar group of people again.
My initial responsibility at CloudBerry will be to help build a community around our products and solutions. While similar to the work I did a Veeam, the products and customers are very different. I’ve been spending the past few weeks learning about the company and products and I’m very happy now that I can start focusing my efforts publicly instead of behind-the-scenes.
If you’re not familiar with CloudBerry, we have a solid set of backup products for Windows, Mac, Linux and the cloud. CloudBerry also has a great SaaS solution focused on Managed Services Providers (MSPs). The CloudBerry Managed Backup Service allows MSP’s to remotely monitor and manage backups across all of their customers. All CloudBerry solutions also support backing up data directly to the Cloud (over 50 different clouds supported!). One of the unique things about CloudBerry is that we don’t tie you to a specific cloud storage platform, you essentially bring your own cloud storage and you’re free to change whenever you want.
As I start my journey at CloudBerry, I’ll be reaching out to some of our key customers and influencers to get their feedback. My goal is to build a team of top influencers who can not only help us improve our products but also to help us spread the word about CloudBerry solutions.
