Unitrends, the leader in affordable, heterogeneous, vertically integrated, disk-based all-in-one data protection appliances, today announced that it will sponsor a one-hour webinar with leading market analyst George Crump of Storage Switzerland. He will discuss the state of cloud-based backup and how it is evolving to satisfy the enterprise. The free webinar, Leverage the Cloud for Enterprise Backup, will be held on May 6 at 2:00 p.m. eastern.
The webinar will discuss the evolution of the backup market and how companies can now leverage the cloud for enterprise backup without suffering through its weaknesses. In this presentation, Crump, lead analyst at Storage Switzerland, will review the state of cloud based backup and how it is evolving to satisfy the enterprise.
Data protection has been one of the earliest use cases of cloud storage, said Crump. Most of that use, however, has been in the consumer or very small business areas of the market. Large data sets have specific challenges in cloud-based recoveries and most cloud only backup models do not have application modules to protect online active data. In this webinar I will cover the range of options and best practices for selecting a cloud-based solution that meets enterprise requirements.
This is the ideal webinar for any organization evaluating a cloud-based solution for flexible, reliable data protection, said Dr. Mark Campbell, COO, Unitrends. George will offer valuable insights on the use of cloud backup in the small to mid-sized enterprise and help guide attendees through common cloud-backup pitfalls they should avoid.
Unitrends recently launched its Vault2Cloud service which solves many of the traditional challenges and concerns with cloud computing such as security, performance of local backup and recovery, and initial data synchronization. Vault2Cloud provides data encryption, on-premise appliance integration, and fast physical seeding of customer data into the cloud. For fast cloud data recovery following a disaster, Vault2Cloud offers RapidReplacement services which replaces and fully restores the customers on-premise appliance with the protected data from the cloud.
