Veeam Takes the Next Big Step in Backup and Recovery (including Cloud Solutions)

By Kevin Vogl, VP of Virtualization & Cloud

Veeam is a key component to many organization’s data management strategy for their virtualized environments. They rely on Veeam to backup all of their virtual machines w/out having to take them down or install agents on individual applications. Veeam has taken the next step to help you with your physical Windows and Linux servers, along with Workstations, and now adds the cloud to the equation.

In this blog post, we break it all down for you and included the promotions available.

1. Availability of Veeam for Physical & Cloud based Servers running Linux and Windows OS

Veeam for Microsoft Windows and Linux help you avoid downtime and data loss for Windows and Linux-based physical or public cloud-based workloads quickly and easily. Delivering availability for physical and cloud-based servers and workstations — both on-premises or remote — presents challenges all organizations must overcome, including: complex and costly procedures to restore Linux and Windows workloads from public cloud environments such as Azure and AWS; backup and recovering mobile devices like laptops or tablets has always been a problem for users working outside the corporate infrastructure; and having more than one backup solution because of different environments (virtual and physical) has always been a challenge to keep up with the latest best practices for each product. Veeam’s new solution for Hybrid clouds is the only real solution to tackle both your virtual, physical and cloud environments in a single interface with one management structure.

WannaCry Ransomware Attack and Helpful Resources


Erick Bacallao joined Champion Solutions Group in 2015 after a career of Software Development in Cuba at the National Cancer Care Institute of Cuba, followed by moving to the States with allAware.


Champion acquired allAware and its properties and Erick has utilized his extensive background and expertise in IT and Software Development to rise to VP of Product Development in less than 5 years. During this time, Erick has been involved with key projects that led to the launch of numerous products including CSP Boss, Inscape platform and 365 Productivity Insights.


Erick has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Havana. He won Gold Medals for Programming from the Ministry of Education in Cuba, and he is certainly still a Gold Medalist for Champion!


As President and CEO, Chris is responsible for the development of key strategic alliances and solution portfolio. He leads Champion’s go-to market and execution strategies for integrated offerings in the cloud, in security, and in digital infrastructure, always focusing on improving the customer experience and driving transformative business outcomes.


He also aligns key partner initiatives with company strategy and oversees corporate marketing and messaging to gain mindshare with customers and partners. It’s his vision and innovativeness that have catapulted Champion up the ranks to become a $100M+ organization—and one of the most respected solution providers in the industry.


Over the past two decades, Chris has also focused on mergers and acquisitions, as well as innovative product development. He is the original founder and an active member on the Board of Managed Maintenance, Inc., a SAAS provider and consulting firm that utilizes their award-winning One-View Portal to help the IT Channel and its customers manage their IT Maintenance.


Chris is also the original founder and chief strategist behind one of the original storage cloud providers, Storage Access / BluePoint. During the course of a few short years, he had raised $20M and took that company public on the Toronto Stock Exchange. It has since been acquired by Pomeroy.


In 2012, Chris led the acquisition of MessageOps and continued the product development and worldwide launch of its premier SAAS, 365 Command. Built on Microsoft Azure, 365 Command is currently managing over 1 million seats of Microsoft’s Office 365. After achieving this phenomenal milestone, 365 Command and other MessageOps O365 utilities were sold to Kaseya.


Over the past 35 years, Chris as worked tirelessly to not only advance his own career, but those of his employees. In addition to leading a $100M organization, Chris can also be found sitting with sales teams, cold calling and coaching, and validating why Champion has been listed on Best Places to Work by both South Florida Business Journal and Computerworld.

Ultimately, the success garnered by Champion Solutions Group, its associated companies, and their employees is due in large part to the leadership of its President and CEO. Perhaps the most fitting award Chris has earned is South Florida Business Journal’s 2013 Ultimate CEO Award.
