Available On Demand
In today’s environment, business continuity is a necessity, and many businesses require 24x7x365 availability. Downtime is very expensive, not only in terms of lost revenue but also in the loss of customer confidence and trust. However, preventing downtime and ensuring business continuity can also be difficult and expensive.
In this webcast, Michael Otey, senior contributing editor of IT Pro Today and President of TECA Inc will discuss the challenges of protecting your critical data and creating a highly available infrastructure. The lower RTOs and RPOs that you require, the more you typically need to spend.
Topics covered include:
- Business challenges of improving critical applications availability
- The latest industry trends in business continuity solutions
- Pros and cons of today’s primary availability technologies
Joining the webcast, Alex McMullan, Pure Storage EMEA CTO, will introduce a new way of providing business continuity for today’s businesses and critical applications. Alex will show how Pure Storage’s new Purity ActiveCluster is different from traditional storage solutions and represents a new type of Tier 1 availability solution for business critical and production applications.
