Data protection for the cloud era

4th March 2020 | 6:00pm GMT | 1 Lombard Street, London
A Meet the Boss Live event in association with Druva

According to a survey of 2000 IT managers from Intel Security, 80% of enterprises now have a cloud-first policy in place. And whether they define cloud-first as adding new cloud-native solutions, migrating on-premises solutions to the cloud, or a little of both, at the same time, businesses are looking for a better way to handle data protection.

Why move data protection to the cloud (and why it isn’t easy)?
Many organizations are struggling to scale outdated tape-based backups and redundant capacity as the amount of data that needs to be protected skyrockets.

For cloud-first organizations, moving data protection to the cloud can seem like a no-brainer; it is often one of the first IT functions to migrate to the cloud. But transitioning data protection to the cloud isn’t easy. Simply relocating legacy backup solutions can lead to unexpected costs, incomplete data, and compromised performance. It can also make it difficult to comply with regional data privacy rules that limit how data can be copied and stored.

Cloud-native backup and recovery offers scalability and elasticity, predictable cloud costs, instant failover and data access, higher performance and tighter security.

The question is: how do you get there, from here?

Join Druva and select group of IT business- and thought leaders for one unique, interactive evening of peer-to-peer conversation inspired by proven case studies and focused on how to get best results from your cloud strategy – and how to create, sell-in and execute a strategy that considers how data is stored, secured, and kept resilient.

Discussion Topics

Does protecting and managing your data in the cloud future-proof your cloud transformation?
What are the real and proven business advantages of public cloud?
How do you best plan for compliance and data regulations and the exponential growth of data?
