Achieve Operational Recovery for Critical Applications
July 23, 2014 (July 23, 9am PT, 12pm ET)

How are you protecting the business-critical data and applications on your tier-1 storage systems? Traditional incremental and full backup paradigms don’t work when you can’t stop the system to back it up (backup window), can’t afford to lose any data (Recovery Point Objective - RPO) and can’t afford downtime (Recovery Time Objective - RTO). Join us to review new approaches to data protection and recovery that don’t require a rip-and-replace of your existing infrastructure.

By attending this webcast, you’ll learn how to:

  • Eliminate the need for a backup window, and reduce the stress on your application server.
  • Protect data more often, reducing the amount of data at risk.
  • Layer capabilities for operational recovery, disaster recovery, and continuous availability.
