At the conference Shannon will be talking about Next Generation Data Protection and other Euphemisms:
As an IT manager, you decide to cut though the complex data protection decision making process by picking a limited number or even a single hardware/software vendor. You buy their whole data storage, replication and orchestration stack. Sure, it’s more expensive, but nobody gets fired for buying…wait, what? They just got sold? Now you’re worried. Will the hardware survive the inevitable consolidation that will take place? How do I avoid this from happening in the future?
Join Shannon Snowden from Zerto as he discusses the importance of changing the IT decision-making philosophy to ensure survival as the next generation of data management and protection arises.
