Simplify your Company’s Data Protection in the era of the Hybrid Cloud. Next TechnoLab to be held on Thursday, October 24, 2019

Taking place on October 24, 2019, from 8:15 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., at the CONTINUUM™ Innovation Center, our next TechnoLab workshop will be focused on new methods for data management and protection. Come see the new solutions that integrate to the Cloud just the way you want. You’ll also see innovative solutions that simplify your operations while guaranteeing your data’s protection at all times.


Cohesity – A single platform to manage all your secondary data, backups, archives, files, objects and test/dev data.

For many years, companies have invested into modernizing their systems, replaced their data storage technology, and deployed virtualization, but in many cases, their infrastructures and their data protection mechanisms have not followed pace. Surprising though, analysts claim that between now and the year 2022, a large portion of corporate data management will be transferred to the public Cloud.
In the field, the number of applications and platforms to support, the exponential data types to manage and the overall volume of information stored by companies is ever-increasing. This tends to quickly create different information silos (either internally or in the public Cloud), which adds complexity to the management of operations and a loss of an overall global strategy and integrated enterprise data protection.


Key subjects covered in our conference

  • New methods for data management and protection
  • The problem surrounding the fragmentation of company data and the multiplication of information silos
  • Protecting company data in the era of the Cloud
  • Simplify and automate your operations thanks to a software-based approach
  • How to prepare and integrate Amazon, Azure or Google public Cloud services to your data protection strategy
