SlideShare: The Three Reasons Cloud Backup is Broken and How to Fix It

The cloud was supposed to be the answer to IT’s backup dilemma; instead, it in some ways has made the situation worse. In this on demand webinar Storage Switzerland and Microsoft Azure have a roundtable discussion on what’s gone wrong with cloud backup and how to fix it. In this webinar we cover the three problems with cloud backup:

  1. Doesn’t eliminate the on-premises infrastructure; it replaces it with a new one.
  2. Doesn’t protect Hybrid IT. Solutions are often on-premises focused or cloud-focused. IT needs one integrated solution.
  3. Creates a problematic ROI calculation. Egress calculations are not factored into the cost, making understating the cost of a cloud backup solution very difficult.

After a careful examination of the problem, the team will discuss ways to address these problems to create an infrastructure-less data protection environment. Attendees to the live webinar can ask their specific cloud backup questions directly of the panel and get expert answers immediately.

All registrants get a copy of our paper “What is Infrastructure-less Backup”.
