Achieving cost-effective disaster recovery (DR) services without a physical DR site — or having to extend your DR footprint — is possible. In this live webcast with Microsoft, see how you can use AppAssure software in combination with Microsoft® Azure® and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) from Dell partner, eFolder.
The first half of the webcast will showcase how you can store AppAssure backup archives directly on Azure and perform item-level recovery from the archive without having to download the archive from the cloud. Then we’ll showcase ways to replicate AppAssure backup images to the eFolder® Storage Cloud® and enable multiple disaster recovery options.
Join our webcast partnered with Microsoft® and see how easy it is to:
• Manage the growth of your backup archives
• Establish cost-effective disaster recovery without a DR site
• Avoid extending your DR footprint
What you will learn:
• How to leverage Azure to directly store AppAssure backup archives
• How to perform item-level recovery from the archive without downloading the archive from the cloud

In today’s world, customers expect 24x7 availability and business owners expect IT to deliver but with an ever increasing number of apps, services and mobile devices, IT struggles to ensure the availability of end-to-end IT services. The result is that many IT organizations use a one-size-fits-all approach to protect their entire environment, using the same tools and techniques for their most critical and least critical systems. The strategy often leads to increased costs and complexity and mismatched business and IT expectations. In this webinar, guest speaker, Forrester analyst Research, Inc. VP and Research Director Stephanie Balaouras will talk about how to tailor application protection, improve overall maturity through process improvements and how to ensure business-IT alignment.
Most vendors require you to compromise when committing to a backup solution, leading you to overpay or under-protect critical data. You don’t have to do that anymore.
