Learn to build a world-class Backup and DR solution in our FREE event

On Thursday 12th October, IT experts from SureSkills, IBM and CommVault will discuss how Backup as a Service and Disaster Recovery as a Service can benefit your business.

The traditional IT model is becoming stale – where you own infrastructure, plan for 5 to 7 years in terms of storage, anticipating requirements and reacting when there is a gap. When business changes, backup and DR need to react. But this is a distraction when the production systems are the key to business.

Backup and Disaster Recovery have changed.

We will tell you where you have to be:

  • Delivering minimal data loss for critical systems (Under 15 minutes)

  • Achieving aggressive times on system or data recovery (Under 4 hours)

  • Understanding the cost of down time and data loss

  • Adhering to robust policies on protection and invoking recovery

  • The ability to prove this is real

DRaaS & BaaS can make this a reality:

  • Consumption based model, you pay for what you use when you need it

  • Granular protection aligned to real value of data

  • Scalable on demand for recovery events

  • Focus key internal staff on internal needs

  • React to changing needs rapidly

  • Move to Opex instead of Capex
