  • The Next Question: How to Backup Office 365
    The Next Question: How to Backup Office 365 Storage Switzerland, KeepItSafe, Veeam Recorded: Sep 20 2018 63 mins
    The first Office 365 question is, do organizations need to protect their data stored there? The answer is yes, Office 365 data needs protection. Almost every industry expert recommends that organizations take Office 365 protection into their own hands and even Microsoft makes it clear that data is the organization’s responsibility. The problem is those industry experts and Microsoft don’t answer the next question of HOW to backup Office 365 data.

    Register now and learn not only why organizations should back it up but also how they should do it.

    In response to the need for Office 365 protection, vendors have flooded the market with solutions but protecting Office 365 is more than just a “checkbox”. Data in Office 365 has value to the organization, is subject to a variety of compliance regulations, and is the target of cyber-attacks.

    In our webinar Storage Switzerland, Veeam and KeepItSafe compare the various methods for protecting Office 365.

  • Nouveauté OneXafe: nouvelle génération d'appliances de sauvegarde convergées
    Nouveauté OneXafe: nouvelle génération d'appliances de sauvegarde convergées Florian Malecki, International Sr. Product Marketing Director Sep 27 2018 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    L'explosion des applications virtualisées, la réduction des fenêtres de sauvegarde et la croissance impressionnante du volume de données ont placé un immense fardeau sur les besoins en matière d'infrastructure de stockage et de protection des données. La situation se complique d’autant plus en raison des environnements de protection des données fragmentés actuels et des besoins de sauvegarde de données physiques et virtuelles, sur site et hors site, qui doivent tous satisfaire des niveaux de service différents (SLA). L'infrastructure de sauvegarde et de stockage secondaire est souvent fournie par plusieurs prestataires. Résultat : une augmentation des coûts d'acquisition et des inefficacités opérationnelles. L'agrégation de tous ces produits entraîne de silos de données difficiles à gérer de façon centralisée. Une vue incomplète du flux de protection des données peut conduire à une hausse des coûts d'exploitation, une perte des données et une incapacité à respecter les SLA ainsi que les réglementations et exigences de conformité propres au secteur.


    Rejoignez StorageCraft pour un webcast exclusif afin de découvrir les avantages de la nouvelle plateforme OneXafe converged storage and data.
  • New OneXafe: next generation converged storage and data protection
    New OneXafe: next generation converged storage and data protection Florian Malecki, International Sr. Product Marketing Director Sep 27 2018 9:15 am UTC 60 mins
    The growth of virtualised applications, diminishing backup windows, and explosive data growth have collectively placed an immense burden on data protection and storage infrastructure requirements. This complexity continues to be exacerbated by today’s fragmented data protection environments and the need to backup physical and virtual, on-premises and off-premises data, all with different service level agreements (SLAs). Backup and secondary storage infrastructure often comes from multiple vendors which significantly increase costs, add operational inefficiencies, and create data silos, making it difficult to manage centrally. An incomplete view of data protection workflow can lead to rising operational costs, data loss, and the inability to meet SLAs and specific industry regulations and compliance requirements.

    Join our webcast and learn how the new StorageCraft OneXafe converged data platform can help you with better protecting and managing your data in heterogeneous environments.

  • Overcoming the Storage Roadblock to Data Center Modernization
    Overcoming the Storage Roadblock to Data Center Modernization Storage Switzerland and Datera Sep 27 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Organizations have tried a variety of solutions to regain control of their data storage infrastructure. They’ve invested in monolithic storage systems, software defined storage (SDS) and hyper-converged systems. While each approach may have brought some value, each failed in its primary task: consolidating storage resources. Each of these consolidation efforts is unable to consistently guarantee performance, scale capacity and drive down storage costs.

    As a result, most organizations end up buying workload specific solutions for both legacy and modern applications. Most data centers today have a mixture of multiple all-flash storage systems, hyper-converged environments and high capacity data archives. They also have storage software for each use case. IT ends up dealing with a data management nightmare, which limits organizational efficiency and productivity.

    Don’t give up! Join Storage Switzerland and Datera to learn how monolithic, software defined and hyper-converged architectures have let IT down and why the problem gets worse as data centers modernize. Attendees will learn how storage solutions need to change in order to eliminate primary storage silos while guaranteeing specific application performance, scaling to meet capacity demands and lower storage TCO.
