If your production environment stayed the same, then backup, recovery, and availability would be easier to achieve.  But your production environment isn’t stagnant, so how do one keep solving for a moving target? How can you and your IT team “keep up” with modernizing protection with each modernization of production.  What should you be looking for or considering around data protection in an ever-changing IT landscape?

ESG principal analyst, Jason Buffington, will share the latest research and market trends around 1) understanding the technology and business drivers that are affecting modern SLAs  and 2) considerations for a broader strategy for backup, recovery, and availability outcomes.  Along the way, Veeam’s Vice President, Product Strategy, and Chief Evangelist, Doug Hazelman, will share how Veeam’s technologies and vision address those IT challenges.
