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.

Whether it's a hurricane or a server misconfiguration, companies need to have a disaster recovery solution in place in order to continue to operate, while their internal IT departments resolve the problem. Quorum's CEO, Larry Lang, will focus his session on the importance of going beyond traditional backup methods to implement a disaster recovery and management plan that enables business continuity and prevents costly downtime.

Relevant Communications: What Mass Notification is Missing

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (REGISTER NOW!)

Sponsored By xMatters Years ago you saw a need in your company for a tool that would allow you to communicate to people when emergencies happened. You innovated how your company operated in times of crisis. Instead of relying on call trees, you implemented a mass notification tool so you could blast messages out to the people who needed to know. But just as you innovated then - growing from call trees to mass notification - it's time for change again. There is new technology available to make the notifications you send out relevant to the people that receive them. Instead of sending a generic message to everyone and hoping that it's relevant to them, there is a new way to communicate. This need to provide the right information to the right people means that the communication vendor you select for emergency communications needs to do more than just "spray and pray".
