The Big Role of Physical Backup Appliances

Virtual backup appliances (VBAs) are an instance of backup software running in a virtual machine on a general purpose server. VBAs are flexible and effective, and they are usually simple to deploy. Having said that, physical backup appliances (PBAs) have distinct advantages in several areas.

Evaluating Data Protection for Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Hyperconvergence is a still-evolving trend, and the number of vendors in the space is making the evaluation of hyperconverged infrastructure complex. One criterion to consider in any infrastructure review is data protection.

Recovery Assurance: The Critical Success Factor for Cloud-based DR

Mike Tyson famously observed “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” The question is, will your Disaster Recovery plan survive that punch and save the day. In this presentation, Jim Whalen of Taneja Group and Dave Leclair of Unitrends will discuss cloud-based Disaster Recovery, how Recovery Assurance is an absolutely crucial component of any DR plan and why choosing a DRaaS provider needs to be on everyone’s short list of options when developing their Disaster Recovery plans.

Data protection vendors fight for cloud storage title

Though major cloud storage service providers like AWS, Azure and Google lead on price, they may be lacking for data protection services.

Compliance in the Cloud

Compliance in the cloud raises numerous questions: Responsibility for protecting this data resides with the business, the cloud backup vendor and the cloud owner, but most chiefly it's the business's responsibility.

New Rules for Recovery: Setting Expectations for Today’s Continuity Platforms

Traditionally, when people talk about data protection, they’re talking about some form of backup. However, if those backups effectively end up in a “write-only memory”, they’re not much good. So really, the bottom line is recovery is what people are most concerned about when they talk about data protection. With the degree to which today’s technologies have been refined and the plethora of data protection platforms available, users should maintain a baseline set of simple expectations to be met no matter who or what they choose for the job. In this presentation, Taneja Group and Dave LeClair of Unitrends will discuss the “New Rules for Recovery” that everyone’s solution should adhere to.

Data Protection in the Era of Hyperconvergence

Hyperconvergence is a rapidly growing and evolving force in the IT infrastructure space. Emerging from the factory pre-configured racking programs of the big IT equipment suppliers, it quickly morphed into a variety of VM-centric architectures where compute, storage and networking (and more) are all integrated below the hypervisor and provide a unified platform to run virtual workloads on. The questions surrounding Data Protection are many: Is a DP mechanism even needed in a distributed cluster architecture that hyperconverged platforms typically drive? What’s the role of traditional backup software and appliances? Is physical server backup still important? What’s the optimum solution for backing up a hyperconverged platform? Is there an optimum solution?

In this presentation, some of today’s leading vendors will give their take on what the intersection of Hyperconvergence and Data Protection means for the end user.
