Revolutionizing VM Availability with the Easiest Data Protection Solution You’ve Ever Seen with Eric Herzog, IBM VP Product Marketing and VP WW Storage Channels, Storage Systems and Software Defined Infrastructure

Your virtual machines, applications or users’ files are difficult to access and once recovered, are often outdated or compromised. You can no longer afford to rely on complex, legacy backup solutions that create redundant copies, limit access and delay data recovery.  Join this session to learn about how IBM is modernizing data protection with new, easy-to-use, lightweight software specifically designed to bring simplicity and speed to critical processes such as snapshots, backups and clones within VMware environments. This session will include a live demo.
