Affordable, On-Demand Disaster Recovery: Introducing CloudArray DRaaS

Viewable On Demand (Originally aired May 30, 2013)

Designing a disaster recovery solution is about finding a balance between data protection and affordability.  While colocations offer rapid disaster recovery and business continuity in hours or even minutes, they are an expensive and high maintenance option.  Lower cost data protection, through tape or disk backup, may cost less, but comes with a much higher price in longer recovery times. TwinStrata Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) helps find the balance between these two options by giving you affordable, on-demand disaster recovery. In this webinar TwinStrata CEO, Nicos Vekiarides, lays out the challenges associated with traditional disaster recovery strategies and how CloudArray DRaaS can help you solve these problems.

3 Steps to Eliminate Storage Administration Headaches: From Storage Management to Storage Value

Viewable On Demand (Originally aired September 27, 2012)

Today, the data center is moving from virtualization to cloud computing, with an eye toward reducing IT complexity and costs while increasing flexibility and business responsiveness.  In reality 60-70% of IT budgets are devoted to maintaining existing infrastructures not on creating business value. IT personnel are stretched too thin to truly respond to the needs of the business and spend most of their time just keeping up. This is particularly true when it comes to the storage infrastructure. Countless hours and millions of dollars are spent on the “must-haves” of provisioning, performance tuning, expansion, backup, archival, disaster recovery, as a necessary cost of doing business.

In this webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland, IBM and TwinStrata will share their insight on steps that IT can take to reduce the amount of time spent on the storage must haves so that they can instead focus on initiatives devoted to business value.
