    The Fastest, Easiest Way to Backup and Store Data—so You Can Do More Important Things

    Are you still spending too much time backing up and storing data rather than using that information to drive business innovation? If so, it just might be time to consider an all-in-one backup target appliance (BTA).

    Join us as Seagate appliance experts Anne Haggar and Samuel Nagalingam will help you answer these important questions:

    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.

  • Dealing with Hidden Cloud Dependencies Recorded: Mar 19 2015 48 mins
    Edward L. Haletky, Principal Analyst, The Virtualization Practice, LLC
    As you move your workloads to the cloud, you need to be aware of hidden dependencies whether in your workloads you have moved, or within the cloud itself. There are many aspects of the cloud that are hidden from view, and these cause unknown dependencies. Moving to rapidly, these dependencies could rear up and cause disaster or at the very least some headaches. A well thought out plan is required when using the cloud. Each dependency should be tackled, each should be discussed before entering the cloud, but often that is not always the case. We will look at these dependencies and provide actionable advice on best practices on dealing with these hidden dependencies.
