Do you know how to combine the principles of backup recovery for hybrid environments into a comprehensive realistic data protection plan?

Join us for a fast-paced discussion with industry leader +greg schulz  of StorageIO. Come with your questions, observations and comments on this important topic. 

We'll be building on the discussion from the Jan. 14. webcast, covering the different needs, focus, and requirements of common applications such as big data, little data, big fast data, email, NAS, and other file sharing.  We'll also discuss things to keep in mind when working with those responsible for protecting complex hybrid environments.

Hope you'll join us!

This is not a product centrict discussion , it's about getting back to basics and figuring out what you need. So you can have a proper product discussion! ;)
