    1. Why are backup target appliances gaining steam in the market?
    2. How do you know if a BTA is right for you?
    3. How can Seagate’s BTA solve the problems you have managing your information and backing up enterprise applications?

    After taking a high-level look at the latest trends in BTA technology, Anne and Samuel will introduce you to the powerful, all-new Seagate Backup Target Appliance—an all-in-one solution that provides an onsite backup point for your most important information, let’s you optionally run the EVault Director Backup and Recovery Software, and allows you to replicate to another BTA or to the cloud.

    Find out how you can protect the information that matters most—wherever it resides—freeing you to use the information to drive innovation.
