This presentation will examine the rapidly changing data protection landscape and how it's affecting storage, storage systems, business continuity, and disaster recovery. Several different technologies and services will be examined including: VM protection, replication, snapshots, backup, imaging, physical to virtual conversion, VM mounting, deduplication target storage, purpose built backup appliances, object storage, cloud storage, cloud compute and storage, and the reemergence of tape. Trends and issues will be divulged. Insights into what key vendors provide and actually deliver. Advice on how to deal with specific data protection and storage problems will be supplied. And a wealth of information will be dispersed. Imagine drinking from a fire hose. And all of this will be wrapped in humor and anecdotes.
