2018 Enterprise IT Virtual Summit
Disappearing Walls: Building Enterprise IT Architecture for a New EraWatch Now!
Presented By: AcutalTech Media
What You Need To Know About This Special Online Event
The data center as we knew it is a dinosaur. Gone are the days of strict rigidity and of applications running in impenetrable fortresses nestled inside the bowels of corporate HQ. Today, enterprise IT architecture is scattered across the land, with pockets existing inside an organization’s borders, but, increasingly expanding to new lands, in the form of the hybrid cloud.
The scattering of the application environment has created brand new opportunities for the business but has also created significant new challenges and raised new questions. For example, how do you ensure security in this emerging hybrid cloud paradigm? What kinds of resource options do you have for servers, storage, networking, virtualization, etc? How do I secure address unsanctioned applications? How do I ensure that my critical application workloads remain protected, regardless of where they operate? How do I simplify this beast so that I can manage it in a cost-effective way? How can this new paradigm help me discover new tools that can help me accelerate my business? How do I enable users and help my organization’s transformation efforts?

- Bruce Milne Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer
The shift toward using cloud service providers for an increasing number of production IT functions with backup and DR often at the top of the list of the tasks that companies first want to deploy in the cloud. But as IT staff seeks to ‘check the box’ that they can comply with corporate directives to have a cloud solution in place for backup and DR, they also need to simultaneously check the boxes for simplicity, cost-savings, and it just plain works. To choose the right cloud service provider for corporate backup and DR requirements companies want to be cost conscious. But they also want to experience success and not put their corporate data or their broader cloud strategy at risk. Unitrends checks those boxes, while giving you the confidence that you can recover within the SLA!

A New Era for Data Protection : Continuous Journal-Based Recovery 1:10-1:30PM
It’s time to revolutionize your data protection with continuous journal-based recovery instead of periodic backups or snapshots!

Learn how to use the Zerto journal coupled with continuous replication to recover files, VM’s, applications or even entire data centers and resume from just seconds before an incident – unlike backups or snapshots that could be 4 or more hours (even 24 hours!) out of date.

Service Provider Cloud Trends: Key Insights into how & why service providers are building a hybrid multi-cloud experience for their customers. 1:40-2:00PM
Being all in on the public cloud is not the end state. Enterprises are now realizing that their diverse applications need different and diverse infrastructure. Whether the application/data resides on premises, in colocation, in the service provider infrastructure or in the hyperscale cloud, enterprises now understand that managing where the data lives is very complex and that they need help managing it. Innovative service providers are taking steps to manage the data no matter where it needs to live, creating the requirement that the underlying network be simplified and diverse and span all four data locations. This presentation will share insights and considerations for enterprises looking to build their own hybrid multi-cloud experience.
