Let’s face it, data protection is more broken than ever. Data center initiatives like virtualization and big data analytics as well as the general expectation of users that everything be up all the time, have created an almost impossible set of challenges to which IT planners need to respond. Join experts from Storage Switzerland, HP and Synnex as we provide the three steps to backup, and recovery, success. Those steps are:
- Understand the Problem Facing Data Protection
- Establish Service Level Objectives – Don’t Wait for Agreement
- Select the Right Technology to Meet Objectives and Solve the Problems
Understanding these keys are critical to delivering a backup and recovery strategy that you and your organization can count on. While it is obvious to most that data is growing, solving the problem depends on understanding why and what type of data is growing as well as understanding the relative value of that data to the organization both near and long term.
While many events will focus on a specific technology, few focus on process. If the data protection process is broken, a new solution will at best just be a band-aid that is destined to break the next time there is a new initiative in the data center. Other industry experts will talk about service level agreements (SLAs) which seem like a good idea but simply aren’t practical. Data protection professionals need to take the lead and set data protection objectives for the environment.
Finally, meeting those newly established objectives and solving the data protection problem is going to require technology. Sometimes you will be able to leverage what is in place and other times you will need something new that provides greater prioritization, predictions and recommendations.
In this webinar we will provide specific examples of how new solutions and processes can solve this old problem once and for all.
