ChalkTalk Video: What’s Wrong with Traditional Backup vs The Cloud?

Traditional backup consists of a backup server, which stores copies of production data in a tape library or a deduplicated disk storage appliance. Most of these legacy solutions try to extend themselves into the cloud. The problem is the backup software was created for the cloud era, and they don’t fully leverage it. In this ChalkTalk Video, Druva’s Chief Technical Architect W. Curtis Preston joins Storage Switzerland to discuss the challenges with traditional architectures cloud extensions and how a cloud-native backup solution makes more sense as a way to solve the backup nightmare.

Eleven years ago George Crump founded Storage Switzerland with one simple goal; to educate IT professionals about all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought after public speaker. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS and SAN, Virtualization, Cloud and Enterprise Flash. Prior to founding Storage Switzerland he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators where he was in charge of technology testing, integration and product selection.
