We are entering rapidly changing times in the storage arena leading to major transformations of traditional SAN based storage environments.
This webinar will discuss three tactics you can deploy to define an appropriate service framework for the delivery of storage services within your business and allow you to effectively evaluate the technology offerings and operational models now available.
We will discuss how to take a pure business view in developing a strategy aligned to the value of the data, independent of the technology landscape available.
We will also discuss how to take the strategy defined and assess the applicability of technology based approaches, adopting third party managed service offerings or utilising the cloud as a backup platform.
Backup is not the most fashionable of functions within the datacentre but it is one that every organisation faces. Nevertheless many firms, particularly at the mid and larger end of the scale, find it challenging to sustain high performance, service quality and control costs.
The emergence of cloud infrastructure offerings such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and Private cloud has only increased the appeal of abandoning the traditional labour-intensive, multi-vendor approach in favour of a service-led utility model.
This raises the question – are you better off continuing with an in-house solution under your control or deploying a cloud service?
The webinar will explore 5 challenges that need to be addressed by Enterprise customers looking to take advantage of the opportunity Cloud presents.
You will learn about:
* The impact on restore
* Handling bandwidth constraints
* Delivering to Service levels in the cloud
* Assessing security and compliance commitments
* The true costs and the impact of change
