Available On Demand
Brought to you by
The cloud era has shaped many industries and is set to shape more, by setting higher than ever expectations and a demand for greater agility and availability without compromise. But how do you capitalize on cloud-era opportunities? Technology partnerships.
However, while it is true technology partnerships can be about vendor value some technology partnerships act as catalysts for driving customer value through ‘opening’ up access to the best solutions for the new business challenges.
In this webinar, you’ll learn the key opportunities for technology partnerships in this cloud world. Areas we’ll explore, include:
- Protecting data assets so that they comply with industry and country regulations requiring a hybrid-cloud solution
- Why 100% data availability is now a common customer expectation
- How the edge will be a big market for data protection and hybrid cloud
You’ll also hear how the Cohesity and Cisco partnership allows customers to provide this high-level of data protection in a cloud environment by using the ubiquity of the Cisco technology that supports and connects many of the cloud deployments. The partnership must provide clear pathways for organizations to adopt the new technologies, while not forcing adoption.
