    Creating a Backup Strategy Fit For Multi-Cloud
    11:00 - 11:30

    Ensuring your data is backed up and available becomes increasingly complex as your business expands to include on-premise and multiple cloud service providers. With every additional provider, your data gets more isolated. It requires specialised skills to architect and operate dedicated backup solutions. These backup pains will only increase as your IT landscape grows and compliance gets ever more demanding.
    SoftwareONE will discuss a new backup solution that alleviates these challenges and offers:
    • An enterprise grade backup system without the complexity
    • A single pane of glass to manage and backup on-premise and cloud hosted instances
    • Secure backup to your Azure storage, from anywhere, without complex setup and administration
    • A pay-as-you-go model with capacity on-demand
