My name is Bart Pellegrino, born and raised Veldhoven the Netherlands.
As a young boy I became fascinated by computers. At the time, no one knew how computers would influence our current daily work and private lives. Neither did I, but the passion for IT and telling everyone about it, stayed and only grew as the years came by so I knew I’ve found one of my passions in life; IT.
In 1997 I started an education in IT, which was a brand new thing at the time. Ever since graduation in 2001 I’ve been working in IT; Systems Admin, Hardware Techie, Onsite Engineer and later on Consultancy. I’m employed by Copaco Nederland B.V. where I work as Technical Consultant and Trainer, specialized in Backup and Disaster Recovery.
As Veeam Certified Architect, I help Veeam ProPartners and their customers taking out the maximum out of their Backup product, aid with proper DR planning and perform assessments to see if everything is compliant to your own regulations and best practices. As Veeam certified Trainer I host VMTSP, VMCE, VMCE-Advanced classes, Custom tailored courses and I’m speaker at Veeam Partner Academies and other events.
In 2018 i got elected by Veeam Software as Veeam Vanguard.
Just a few weeks later, I also got awarded Veeam Certified Trainer of the Year.
Perhaps I’ll meet you soon at a backup event or when I’m hosting a course, in the meantime;
Keep dreaming, keep veeaming!
