eVaultIn this webinar, learn to identify the critical issues to select and implement a successful backup and restore solution for your remote and branch offices. As you know, allowing the freedom of each office to select its own backup technology often results in a quick win followed by inconsistent policies, inefficient management, and poor control of this essential function. As the corporate IT function looks to drive consistent policies for data retention, it needs to assess solution security, restore speed, and ease of management. Sometimes, getting all your remote and branch offices to follow consistent policies may feel like herding cats. Further, from a strategic standpoint, you need to address considerations such as retention policy for compliance reasons and a migration away from tape or to the cloud. Gain insight into the criteria and process for selecting and implementing a winning backup/restore solution that keeps your organization purring.
