Pizza delivery has a history of getting a bad rap. We’ve all experienced long hold times, limited topping choices, late delivery, and, in the end, wrong orders or, worse - cold pizza. Backup/Recovery can also get a bad rap when it comes to delivering on promises of quick recovery, business continuity, and agility to adapting to mixed server environments.
In this uniquely creative (and completely pizza-themed) webcast, I join Mike DiMeglio from Unitrends and discuss how you
Virtual to virtual (V2V) recovery involves the backing up and recovering of virtual machines. So you may be thinking that your customer already has a virtual infrastructure, so why would they need V2V recovery services? Great question, right? But there’s one presumptive point in that question that may not be true when recovery is required. When you consider your customers with a VMware or Hyper-V-based infrastructure, and think about the idea of offering V2V recovery, you pro
If you work for a small business, you probably believe you’re not a target for cyber crime, largely because you have little of value to be stolen. You’re not alone. Almost half (44%) of small business management don’t see cyber crime as a priority either. But with 42% of small businesses experiencing at least one attack in the past 12 months, that thinking needs to be turned around. Phishing, malware, zero-day attacks, application vulnerabilities, and good old-fashioned autom
Most backups are relatively small because they only contain changes made (at a file or, even better, a block level) since the last backup. But while you’re backups are busy grabbing the latest and greatest, some files simply don’t change very often and are, therefore, overlooked. For example, take an organizational chart—it is important, but won’t change daily. Now add to this the fact that your default retention of backups may only be, say, 30 days, with a few archives at mo
Some applications will be important enough that having an ability to recover to the same (or similar) hardware isn’t enough. Take email for example. If your client has an Exchange server running and wants to make sure it can be recovered within an hour with data no more than 4 hours old, that’s an absolute standard. It means no matter what, you have an hour. Period. What if you have no network, no server hardware, how about no building? You have an hour! How in the world are
With the advent of the cloud, nearly everything from infrastructure to software is available “as-a-Service.” And we’ve now reached a point in the development of cloud technologies that it’s not only possible to put the desktop up into the cloud and make it available ”as-a-Service”, but even provide a virtual desktop experience that rivals – or even surpasses – that of a PC.
In this presentation, I join VMware’s Josue Fontanez to discuss the major business challenges of mana
