Reducing Backup and Data Protection Storage Costs from On-Prem to Cloud
Date: Wednesday, September 6 at 11am PT / 2pm ET
There is no such thing as an information recession with exponentially more data generated, moved, processed, stored, and protected. Data is being stored on-prem and in the cloud exponentially while exposed to increased threat risks, resulting in more data protection storage. Instead of throwing more costly on-prem and cloud hardware at the problem, rethink and leverage technologies and techniques to do more without compromise while reducing costs.
Join Greg Schulz, Author and Sr. Analyst at Server StorageIO and Microsoft MVP (CDM), along with Adrian Moir, Sr. Product Manager & Technology Strategist at Quest, for an interactive discussion on reducing backup and data protection storage costs from on-prem to cloud. Adrian and Greg will discuss industry trends, customer pain points, techniques, and best practices to reduce your data footprint impact and how to support exponential data growth without busting your data protection storage budget.
What you will take away from this discussion:
- From on-prem to cloud and hybrid environments
- Data growth, reliance, and threat risk impacts
- Understanding and reducing data footprint impact
- Exploring on-prem and cloud storage options
- How to store more data without breaking your budget
- Best practices, tips, and recommendations
