Trent Odgers will be speaking on the following topic:
From the edge, to the cloud and back
This presentation will cover three crucial elements of cloud data management, namely, backup modernisation, hybrid cloud acceleration and data security. All workloads and data need protection, no matter the location, because data at the edge is sometimes as critical as data in the core, because it is live data. Businesses also need to reliably automate their core backup and recovery abilities to ensure that no matter the scenario, their businesses remain online. Moreover, in this fast-paced digital economy, data movement must be seamless and cloud backup, restore, DR and migration shouldn’t be the headache of the past. Finally, reducing risk and downtime is essential and safeguarding application and workload updates before deploying is a key component. New age software solutions can empower modern application delivery and deployment by enabling businesses to reuse their backup data for Dev & Ops.
