About me

Folow me on Twitter.

My name is Rhys Hammond and this blog is a collection of tips and tricks for solving issues that I’ve encountered designing, installing and supporting Veeam solutions across the years.

I learned early on that what motivates me is working with technologies and products that I truly believe in. I am truly passionate about helping organisations make the most of the best backup & disaster recovery products available today.

Currently, I am working at Veeam as a Channel Services Senior Systems Engineer.

One of my goals is to help the IT community understand more of what Veeam can offer, as part of that effort, I maintain this website, a Veeam and Virtualization-centric weblog providing information, insight, and technical knowledge on all things Veeam related.

In 2020, I was a recipient of the Technical Excellence ANZ – Veeam ProPartner Award.

In 2018, I became a Veeam Certified Architect which is the highest level of Veeam technical certification.

In 2017, I was awarded VMware vExpert for having demonstrated significant contributions to the community and a willingness to share expertise with others. VMware grants the vExpert as an honorary title for advocates of the company’s products.

Also in 2017, I was selected to join the Veeam Vanguard program, the Vanguard program is a global hand-selected list of people who represents Veeam’s brand to the highest level in many of the different technology communities in which they engage. These individuals are chosen for their acumen, engagement and style in their activities both on and offline.

In 2015, I was awarded Veeam Technical Champion for ANZ as a result of my passion and knowledge for the product.

      Hey Henrik,
      Don’t have anything at the moment but it is something I am interested in making soon.

      Hey Gerald,
      Unfortunately, I don’t know of any U4 study guides currently. Hopefully, Rose and I can update our study guide in the near future.
