Orchestrating Harmony: A Practical Guide to Hybrid Cloud
As Cloud use continues to accelerate, IT’s control is becoming more fragmented, with multiple hypervisors and distributed workloads over multiple clouds adding layers of complexity. This leaves the Ops teams with multiple interfaces and difficulty tracking what is going on, with little chance of automating everything that they need to. Due to these issues, data growth and VM sprawl are just as much an issue in public clouds as they are in private clouds; sucking your Opex budget and pushing up costs.
Join Nigel Tozer as he explores how to manage VM lifecycles in a Hybrid cloud; how to leverage automation for DR and Dev & Test functions in the Cloud; why you need to keep tabs on data in the cloud; and the importance of dashboards and reporting.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important new regulation involving individuals’ information to emerge over the last few decades: it provides the foundation for how multi-national organisations and government agencies must protect sensitive customer information, and also how they can derive value from enterprise data.
MAKE COMPLIANCE GOOD FOR YOUR BUSINESS
In order to prepare for the May 2018 deadline, organisations must interpret the GDPR requirements, map processes and technology to them to ensure compliance, and quickly identify the correct information to be tightly managed and protected. Information insight is the key to solving these challenges of large volumes of data and high levels of complexity. The risks are high - lost customer confidence, security breaches, fines, sanctions, and potential lawsuits.
DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR DATA AND STORAGE SHOULD BE?
Enterprise IT is being transformed with the maturing of public cloud providers that offer compute, storage and application services with unprecedented elasticity, scale, resiliency and availability, on a consumption based economic model. However, the choice between public cloud and on-premises infrastructure is not a binary one.
Register to attend our webinar on Tuesday 17th October at 11:00 GMT to discover how HPE Pointnext GDPR Consulting services can provide the expertise and support to de-risk your journey to compliance. Plus learn how Commvault Hyperconverged Architecture can help you to overcome the complexities of GDPR through the consolidation of all roles performed by discrete servers in the traditional data protection architecture into a single software defined stack.
Are you tired of fork-lift upgrades every time you need to add more capacity or performance to your deduplication appliance? Caught in the expensive cycle of repurchasing software and hardware every time you upgrade your backup and recovery system? If this sounds like your environment, you may be running your backup and recovery on a legacy, scale-up infrastructure.
Your infrastructure is holding you and your organization back. What you need is a new solution that meets your business challenges today, and creates the foundation for future growth and greater services.
Learn how applying a scale-out infrastructure can deliver modern data protection and management;
•Eliminate complexity with simplicity and ease of use
•Deliver greater flexibility with cloud-like services
•Increase availability and resiliency
•Minimize operating expenditures with automation and self-service
•Optimize capital expenditures by utilizing x86 technology
Join us as we examine the 5 benefits of scale-out infrastructure for data protection and how it positions your organization for future success.

9 months until the GDPR deadline - are you completely up-to-speed?
Our panel of data protection experts will be discussing the compliance considerations that you need to be assessing for May 2018 along with suggesting next steps from a cyber and general security standpoint.
We'll also be asking YOU at what stage you're at in terms of your preparations via a series of interactive benchmarks as we go through the session to get a sense of where the security community is at in terms of preparations.
GDPR and its May 2018 deadline are now fully the minds of the vast majority of security professionals and with massive fines on the horizon for non-compliance, now is a better time than ever to get to grips with the legislation and ensure that your organisation is secure and compliant.
It’s vital that your business has carried out the relevant preparations for compliance by then to make sure you don’t get whacked with a huge fine of up to £15m or 4% of your organisation’s global annual turnover.
Not only are there potentially huge financial repercussions, but leaving your business open to attack and your customers at risk can cause serious reputational damage.

Let’s face facts, if your organization is not properly backing up data and planning for worst-case scenarios, you're company is probably at risk for a ransomware attack – and that’s a very risky proposition. With the recent global ransomware attack, known now as “WannaCry,” organizations with nothing in common, except having data on a network, are faced with having to pay a ransom to regain access to their own data!
In this webinar we’ll be chatting with two data-protection experts from Commvault about the very real risk of ransomware. We’ll discuss common techniques for stopping and managing the damage from ransomware, and what Commvault can do make sure this doesn’t happen to you.

Organisations are transitioning more of their data and infrastructure into the cloud. Worldwide, the public cloud market is expected to grow 17.2% this year, topping $208.6 billion, according to recent research.
While many IT organisations may just assume that their service providers have backup, recovery and business continuity plans taken care of, that isn’t always the case. Couple that with recent poll results that found 36 percent of IT execs said the loss of data in the cloud would be worse than their data centre crashing and the 14 percent who said such a crash would cost them their jobs and it’s clear that there’s work to be done.
Hear more about why you can’t cede control of your backup and business continuity plans to your cloud provider -- and why doing so could put your data at risk. In this webinar you will also learn:
· What cloud providers are actually responsible for in terms of backup and recovery
· How an SLA doesn’t always mean you are protected
· Why your overall business continuity strategy must embrace the cloud
· Where the most common issues happen and how to prevent them
· How to create end-to-end resiliency that supports your employees, partners and customers
Kevin Beaver, Security Consultant at Principle Logic, LLC and Matt Tyrer, Manager, Solutions Marketing at Commvault
The most profitable type of malware attack is ransomware, with one security firm explaining that ransomware attacks are up an unbelievable 550 percent this year skyrocketing from 131,000 in 2014-2015 to 718,000 in 2015 and 2016. What does this mean? If you're not backing up your data and planning for the worst you're putting your company at risk -- and ensuring that you'll have to pay a ransom if and when you are attacked.
In this webinar we will discuss the very real risks that are out there and how backup -- specifically to the cloud -- can help you tell hackers to take a hike.

In May 2018, GDPR, the strictest privacy regulations in the world, will become an active piece of legislation in EU countries. GDPR will have a global impact, no matter where you trade from; if you process the personal data of EU nationals, you’ll be subject to these laws and the punitive penalties for breaching them.
Traditional ways of processing, securing and managing personal data and information will have to change quite dramatically, and it could impact every part of your organisation. But what are businesses doing about GDPR? IDC have conducted a survey, and the results are in. Join this webinar to get access to the results, presented by IDC’s Carla Arend and learn:
•What are the key requirements of GDPR?
•How do you gauge your GDPR readiness?
•What GDPR requirements present the most difficulty?
•Which GDPR compliance actions provide the biggest challenge?
•What best practice actions can you take?
Carla will be joined by Nigel Tozer to discuss these key topics and provide Commvault’s view of the impact of GDPR on data and information management. The session will be hosted and moderated by Don Foster, Sr. Director WW Solutions Marketing at Commvault.
Those joining the session will also get access to a white paper on GDPR from IDC: Five Essential Steps for GDPR Compliance. The clock is ticking, so don’t miss it!
