Webinar - Providing Meaning and Value to Massive Amounts of Hybrid Cloud Data
By Laura Stotler, TMCnet Contributing Editor
Backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solutions are a top priority for most companies today and a major consideration when choosing a managed service provider (MSP) or system integrator. The enormous amount of data generated by organizations is also a consideration, and providers need to be able to protect that information all the way from data centers to the edge, while meeting their customers' SLAs in an efficient and user friendly manner.
For MSPs and other service providers, this offers an opportunity to add important service offerings to their portfolios that will meet customers' demands while also providing quick ROI. According to Gartner (News - Alert), organizations that integrate high-value, diverse, new information types and sources into a coherent information management structure will outperform peers by more than 20 percent through 2015.
A cost-effective hybrid cloud data protection solution that can organize massive amounts of information into understandable and actionable items, while providing peace of mind in the event of a disaster, is a huge value add for today's MSPs. Being able to protect and secure data across premise, virtual and cloud environments is crucial in hybrid cloud architectures and almost a necessity for providers seeking to meet their customer's needs and stay competitive.
HP company, Autonomy (News - Alert) is helping service providers structure and give meaning to the vast amounts of data in today's cloud architectures through its meaning-based technology. The company provides pattern-matching technology that enables systems to find meaning in big data gathered through databases, call detail records, algorithmic trading and even gene sequencing and sensors.
The company's software is designed to reduce complexity and find real value within large amounts of data. Autonomy's technology is in use serving a wide range of vertical markets throughout a customer list of more than 65,000 global organizations. The company is teaming up with MSPAlliance CEO and co-founder, Charles Weaver (News - Alert) to present a free webinar to discuss how its solutions can help harness the potential of hybrid cloud data.
The webinar will be held Wednesday at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. It is geared toward MSPs, VARs, CSOs, CIOs, data centers, cloud providers and system integrators and will focus on the theme of "Secure Your Customer's Data with Hybrid Cloud Data Protection." Attendees will learn how to protect and secure data across a variety of hybrid cloud architectures as well as how to take advantage of private cloud computing platforms and maximize their data protection service portfolios.
