We hope that time spent in the ANZ Veeam User Group and website community will be useful and fun. To ensure that everyone has the best possible experience we've established a few guidelines. Please take a moment to read them, and thank you for participating in the Veeam User Group community.

About E-mail Addresses and Privacy:

Your email address used to register your membership at the Veeam User Group will not be shared with any third party or used in any advertising material.

The email address will simply be used to advise you of upcoming events in your region or for future newsletters.

Should you not wish to receive newsletters, please send an email to

Expectations of Service

The User Group does not offer formal support for the communities you'll find here. Instead, our role is to provide an environment for people who want to take advantage of the User Group community to learn and network with other Veeam enthusiasts. The Veeam community is about end-user involvement.

Veeam User Group Leaders may monitor content to ensure the accuracy of information you'll find.

The community is about dialog and about knowledge sharing.

Veeam User Group is not … a free for all for resellers/consultants. a place where resellers/consultants promote their own business. (resllers/consultants can talk but they should talk about how a technology solves problems, not how much it is to buy the technology from them) a place for Veeam marketing to try and sell Veeam to attendees, rather its a place to try and educate folks. Let them realise they need Veeam ONE or upgrade to Enterprise Plus.

Rules of Conduct

Appropriate Language:

The purpose of our communities is to exchange technical information and expertise about Veeam Software products. We expect everyone to conduct their conversations in a business-like manner and avoid personal attacks, slurs and profanity in any interaction.

Relevance to Topics:

Please make sure that your postings in newsgroups and chats are relevant to the subject at hand. It is normal for some topics to drift from the stated subject. However, to ensure maximum benefit for everyone, please keep your postings as close to the subject as possible.


These communities are created as a forum for providing peer-to-peer assistance related to using Veeam Software products and services. We ask that you refrain from posting unsolicited advertisements, as they do not pertain to the intended use and purpose of the newsgroup or chat.


Please keep in mind that your communities are public spaces – it would be unwise to post anything that you don't want the world to see. Credit card numbers, product keys and other confidential information, including anything covered under a software license or maintenance agreement, should not be posted to a newsgroup, chat or other community.

As part of ANZ Veeam User Group’s commitment to make our community a great place to meet and interact with others around Australia and New Zealand, you agree to abide by our code of conduct.
