Postcard from the (Leading) Edge: Business Continuity in the Age of Cloud

Monday, November 5, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST

Everyone is moving to the cloud for backup and recovery. But to make the cloud really work for you and your organization, you need to know how to use the cloud, how to choose the cloud, and how to lose that obsolete, hard-to-use management interface.

Take a fast-paced one-hour tour through the hottest trends in cloud backup and recovery.

Trend #1: Customized system architecture. We’ll evaluate the three system architectures you need to understand and determine which is best for you based on your mission-critical data protection and recovery time objectives (RTOs).

Trend #2: The purpose-built cloud. We’ll explore why not all clouds are alike and what you must know when you move your sensitive data to the cloud.

Trend #3: Social management. We’ll address how social media are simplifying day-to-day system management and how to find a solution that corresponds to the way you communicate today.

Join our cloud experts, including Arleen Urquhart, EVault product marketing manager, and find out how to make the right decisions when it comes to building the cloud-based backup and recovery solution that saves your data and your butt.

Postcard from the (Leading) Edge: Business Continuity in the Age of Cloud

Join us Thursday, November 1, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

In today's 24x7 world, companies have found data back-ups are simply not enough. This is because the potential impact of IT outages is now greater than ever. In a recent study, IDC found over 60 percent of executives believed downtime has had a significant impact on their business performance in the last 12 months.

While the cost of downtime ranges widely. On the high end, lost revenue for a brokerage is between $6-7M per hour while outage for retail services are estimated at between 70-100K per hour. In either case the point is clear – even a few hours of downtime in business critical applications has a meaningful impact on a company's revenue growth and profitability.

Yet IT professionals today, tasked with improving disaster recovery preparedness, face significant challenges. With flat budgets, higher levels of complexity, increasingly more applications to protect and shorter recovery windows, yesterday's technologies and practices aren't going to cut it anymore.

In this webinar, you can learn about how organizations are solving these problems by leveraging advanced technologies, new services like cloud, and embracing process improvements. Insight and real world experience combine to provide an informative and practical webinar presentation. .
