How Web-Scale IT Will Change Your Backup and DR Strategy

Presented by

Eric Carter, Senior Director, Marketing, Hedvig

About this talk

The world of backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity is being disrupted by new approaches taken from the playbook of web-scale companies like Google, Amazon, and Facebook. Enterprises are adopting distributed systems-based, software-defined architectures that simplify management, streamline protection, increase uptime and reduce costs by as much as 60%. This session will provide insight on how software-defined storage (SDS) facilitates new ways to protect, manage, replicate, and recover data. Specifically, you’ll learn: • How a hyperscale architecture built on commodity hardware delivers better and more efficient protection for your data and applications • How to create a single geo or metro storage cluster that offers high-availability without the management headaches and high cost of traditional approaches • How to take advantage of a public cloud like AWS as a tier for older, colder data and as a DR site for a truly hybrid approach
