Rethink the Approach to Enterprise Data Protection in the Hybrid Cloud Era

PCD Solutions invites you to take part in the next TechnoLab session on April 25. This recent addition to our program, which is being presented for the first time, explores data storage process simplification, VMware environment protection and new concepts for enterprise data protection in the Hybrid Cloud era.


Cohesity – Finally, a single platform to manage your secondary data, storage, archives, files, objects and test/dev data

Over the past few years, companies have been investing into updating their IT systems, replacing their storage technology, deploying virtualization, but in many cases, their infrastructure and data protection mechanisms have been slow to evolve.

All the while the number of applications and platforms to support, the multitude of data types to manage and the overall volume of archived information continues to grow.  This tends to create various information silos (whether internal or public Cloud), which adds a layer of complexity to the operational management, making it difficult to coordinate actions towards an integrated and global strategy related to enterprise data protection.


Main subjects covered in our conference

  • Taking back control of security, growth and the complexity of data protection management
  • The real impact of mass data fragmentation and the multiplication of company information silos
  • The need to update the approach to data protection in the context of virtualization and Cloud deployment strategies
    (SDDC – Software-Defined Data Centre)
  • Finally, a unique and single platform to manage all of your secondary data, whether internal or that stored in the public Cloud
  • Prepare your company to integrate Amazon, Azure and/or Google services


This conference, organized by PCD Solutions in collaboration with Cohesity, HP Enterprise and Amazon (AWS) will provide an overview of new possibilities, new solutions and innovations that you can take advantage of today. The session is geared towards IT Managers, Solution Architect teams and Operations Managers implicated in the management and security of enterprise data.
