This was Experts Live Europe 2019

As some of you may know, I was speaking at Experts Live 2019 in Prague, a few weeks ago.

Experts Live Europe is the biggest, Microsoft Community Event in Europe, and it was a honor to be part of it, as a speaker.

On the first Day of the Main Conference, I was speaking about Service Management and Automation with System Center.

„6 ways to screw up your System Center ITSM Project“ was the Topic and we had a lot of interesting Discussion during and after the Session.

Thanks to Isi and Marcel for having me as a speaker at this Conference, so I was part of nearly 40 of the best speakers world wide, that makes me really proud.

Altaro VM Backup for Hyper-V and VMware

logoIn this Post, i want to take a closer Look at one my Blog Sponsor. Altaro VM Backup is providing a high performance VM Backup Solution. Before we start with some Key Features, let me introduce Altaro VM Backup.

With Altaro VM Backup, you only need to Backup your VM’s, doesn’t matter if it is HyperV or VMware. You need to license only the amount of Hosts, not the amount of Cores. And the best, for 2 VM’s it is absolutely free.

Feature Highlight

Backup every 5 Minutes

With the newest Release, it will be possible to backup your VM’s up to every 5 Minutes. So will loos nearly no Data in Case of a Desaster.

Boot from Backup

Each Backup is only as good as the Restore time. With Altaro VM Backup you will be able to Boot your VM directly from your Backup Vault, without the a Recovery-time.

Support for Azure Cloud

Of course, also Altaro VM Backup is supporting the offsite Backup to the Azure Cloud. So your Backup is really secure and offsite with support for Azure Backup Vault.

And many more…

Of course, above i have only mentioned a few Features, just to name some more:

Augmented Inline Deduplication, vCenter and CSV Support, Backup with zero Downtime, Central Console, automated Tests and lot more.


As you know, i am a SCDPM Fanboy for a very long time, but some Features are definitely worth trying Altaro VM Backup.

You can download a 30-day trial of Altaro VM Backup. After 30 days, you’ll get forever free backup for 2 VMs

Greenshot 2018-02-19 19.49.56

I have two speaking slots coming in May 2018. One at CDC Germany and one at the Base IT Infrastructure Days.

Let’s start with the first one.

CDC Germany – third year in a row, I am selected by Carsten to speak at CDC Germany, But this will be the first time I am not talking about SCDPM, I wanted to try something new. So I asked Carsten if someone else will speak about SCDPM, and he found one, Charbel Nemnom.

So I am having the Chance to talk about a topic I worked mainly in the last 3 years with, and was having a lot of cool projects. The Title will be „The rising Phoenix – Service Management and Automation with System Center„. But enough said, come to Hanau on the 15th of Mai 2018 and listen my slot, and of course, there are a lot more create speakers there. The Slot will be in german.

Base IT Infrastructure Days – One day after CDC, on May 16th, 2018, I will attend the Base IT Infrastructure Days, so that’s the reason I have to leave early from CDC. I will talk more about Azure, so Azure Backup, OMS Log Analytics, Service Maps and so on. More Details will follow.

So hope to see you in Hanau or Ansfelden in May.
