What Are You Doing in the Cloud? Discover Three Emerging Trends That Should Drive Your Cloud-Based Solution

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.

Are you Always Prepared?

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST

Beyond delivering the information how the person wants it, you should be able to use your phone or smart device to drive agility and ensure that being away from a computer isn't the reason for a longer time to respond or restore normal operations. The communications system you use for incident management should allow you to build a message or report a problem, initiate or send a message or scenario, access documents and plans, view the real time results of who is responding and view the situation status from amobile position. What if the system was so smart it suggested the right document or plan for you?
