Unified Solution versus Point Products: What’s critical to your decision-making?
It’s a perennial problem: Do companies seek the best solution for each aspect of their infrastructure or do they try to find a unified solution that works for everything? As IT organizations rethink their infrastructure strategy to include hybrid cloud, this concern has become more prominent. Point solutions might work better, but they can cause operational issues and are often more expensive, while unified solutions might not work well in one area or another.
When it comes to selecting a data protection solution, today’s IT organizations must consider whether a point product or unified solution is best:
What core capabilities do you need?
Is it better to find a best-of-breed solution for each environment? And what defines a best-in-class solution, especially now that the data center is no longer the data center? How would we even define “best?” Is it cost, complexity, integration, scale, support?
What about deployment? Do you sacrifice some capability to get it all up quickly?
Would a unified solution make it easier to manage now that data is distributed across multiple locations?
With all these questions, customers may look to analyses such as Gartner’s Critical Capabilities report. This comparative analysis scores competing products and services against a set of critical differentiators. But how can you determine the right solution for your environment?
In this webinar, we’ll dig into the analysis and discuss how certain solutions may affect your organization, including:
Capability gaps identified with certain solutions
Whether end-users should choose best-in-class products in each individual area or look for an overall best-of-breed product
The practical challenges of dealing with multiple vendors rather than one

Common countermeasures to ransomware include antivirus, antimalware, and firewall blockers. These are certainly necessary, but they’re not enough to keep you safe. In fact, the majority of victims already had these solutions in place. That means your ransomware strategy should reduce attack risks while also seeking to mitigate the impact of an attack that succeeds anyway. It’s all too likely that one will — so you need to be ready. Join us on this webinar to learn how can Commvault help you defend against

Disaster recovery and IT resilience are hot topics these days. With the constant threat of ransomware, and the general spread of data across a more diverse mix of on-premises and cloud locations making a solid disaster recovery plan for your data is not an easy task. When examining different solutions, you need to be sure they can meet the needs of your business and can deliver on the recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO) required. Not all workloads need to be treated the same, and not all solutions can cover all your applications and data sources. So what are you missing?
Join us as we examine different approaches to disaster recovery, the various needs for modern workloads, and some key features that will help make your disaster recovery plans successful.
We’ll learn how and where automation can assist and discuss options for flexibility to help you tailor your plans to best fit the needs of your different workloads and data types. Of course, it wouldn’t be a webinar without a demo and we won’t disappoint! Tune in for a demo of the latest functionality from Commvault Disaster Recovery that can make your DR plans into reality.

It seems like every time you need to protect a new application or data workload; you need to add another tool or interface to the party. So much for a “complete solution”…
Rather than making IT easier, the approach of many vendors to “buy vs build” new functionality into their portfolios only makes life harder for the customer. These solutions rarely integrate well together, often require their own duplicate silos of infrastructure or at the very least add yet another interface for you to “explore” your data.
Join us as we explore how to not only protect data across on-premises and multi-cloud environments, but also provide analytics, security, and ransomware protection all from a single, powerful UI – the Commvault Command Center. Many others in the marketplace, even the newer players are still just adding to the problem of data (and interface) fragmentation rather than solving it. Don’t get stuck running separate consoles when you were promised a “single-pane-of-glass”. Be ready for a truly unified approach to data management with Commvault.
Of course, there’ll be a demo to prove it so tune in!
