Mike Phelan, Product Manager at Faction, and Jim Shook, Dell Technologies Field CTO for Cyber Recovery
Every 11 seconds a cyber or ransomware attack occurs, threatening to steal or compromise a businesses’ most critical asset – their data. This can lead to lost revenue, reputational damage, and costly regulatory fines. Protecting your critical data and recovering it with validated data integrity is key to resuming normal business operations post-attack.
Customers are looking for the cost efficiency and operational flexibility of the cloud without compromising the security, data protection, and data integrity that on-premises offers. Together, Faction and Dell Technologies deliver a secure data vault and intelligent analytics that safeguard your critical data from cyber-attacks, ransomware, and insider threats.
Join Mike Phelan, Product Manager at Faction, and Jim Shook, Dell Technologies Field CTO at 10am MT/12pm ET on August 25 for a webinar on Cyber Resiliency, and how organizations are successfully leveraging Dell Technologies and Faction to isolate critical data in the cloud without compromising data integrity.
During this webinar, our hosts will discuss:
∙ The evolution of cyber threats and the cyber threat actors attacking businesses
∙ The critical steps to creating a cyber-resilient framework
∙ How businesses can protect themselves with Dell EMC PowerProtect, enabled by Faction
∙ How Cyber Recovery provides a secure managed isolated vault across on-premises and cloud deployments
∙ Strategic partnerships with the hyper-scalers and why it is so important to your business
∙ The impact that technology services brings organizations over other disparate solution offerings

A container-based approach to architecture can unlock significant advantages that include application mobility, rapid scaling, and operational efficiency.
When applied to a multi-cloud approach, containers can be deployed without proprietary cloud templates (e.g. AWS AMI), and provides the ability to arbitrage costs across public clouds more efficiently.
This all sounds great, but complexity can shut down your progress. VMware Tanzu provides a management layer for container orchestration across hyperscale cloud providers, which solves the majority of the complexity problem. But what about your data?
In this on-demand session we will cover the following topics:
-Status of VMware in Public Clouds
-Primer on VMware Tanzu
-Tanzu as the central management plane for multi-cloud container management
-Multi-Cloud data as part of your Tanzu architecture
VMware Cloud is now available on multiple public clouds: VMware Cloud on AWS, Azure VMware Solution, Google Cloud VMware Engine, and Oracle Cloud VMware Cloud Solution. How do you choose the right one(s) for your environment? In this webinar replay, we will cover:
-Introduction to VMware Cloud
-VMware Cloud Availability on Public Clouds
-Strengths of each

VMware Cloud on AWS was the first cloud-based offering for VMware customers looking to seamlessly adopt public clouds, but it is no longer the only option. Offers like Azure VMware Services, Google Cloud VMware Engine, and Oracle Cloud VMware Cloud Solution have expanded the reach from the on-premises datacenter to a global multi-cloud network of providers and regions. Is your organization ready to embrace this new scope in cloud environments and capabilities?
In this webinar, we help you understand the considerations you should take note of before diving in head first:
● Data Gravity and its effect on your future flexibility and cloud optionality
● Cloud lock-in and what it means to your business
● VMware as the central platform that enables true private, hybrid, and multi-cloud
● How your business can get a competitive edge by using more than one cloud at a time
● Driving a 10x savings in data costs while using the best tools from your cloud of choice
● How does this all work? The fundamentals of multi-cloud networking
The top public cloud providers (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Provider) provide similar functionality at the base level, but offer different advanced services and capabilities. Learn how these capabilities are growing further apart over time, and why your teams will want the flexibility of choosing the right cloud for the job at the right time. During this session we will cover:
• Differences in hardware, networking, and other basic elements between clouds
• Differences in services used for things like IoT, AI/ML, and containers & serverless computing
• How data gravity limits multi-cloud use and how to overcome it
• How data, billing, and governance interact
Using specific details drawn from implementing real-world multi-cloud architectures that truly power great outcomes for business, hear Faction’s “lessons learned” from working with large enterprises tackling difficult multi-cloud problems in areas like biotech and Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) development.
