Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery for Your Virtual Environment:
An executive dinner discussion on virtualization strategies for BC/DR for a more cost effective, scalable and reliable environment

For good reason, most organizations have deployed -- or are actively planning to deploy -- server virtualization technology. Virtualization promises the benefits of consolidation and eases many of the challenges of data center management.

But virtualization also causes a ripple effect across your enterprise -- as consolidated server environments present many data protection challenges involving high availability (HA), business continuance (BC), disaster recovery (DR) and data preservation.

Local area IT leaders are invited to take part in a small-group dinner roundtable discussion on business continuity and disaster recovery challenges in virtualized environments. Join storage expert Greg Schulz and sponsors HP and CompuCom for a great dinner and an exchange of critical information you’ll use to make informed decisions for your IT infrastructure.

Seating is strictly limited, so we encourage you to register right away. Call roundtable coordinator Margo Harney at (781) 657-1374 or apply online and Margo will contact you.

About this Dinner Discussion

Because virtualization is new, the peripheral challenges it creates are uncharted waters for IT managers and CIOs. This dinner affords you the opportunity to get a detailed overview from independent expert Greg Schulz of the risks you face, plus you’ll get ideas on applicable technology solutions from HP and CompuCom. Best of all, you’ll network with your local IT peers who are right now addressing the same challenges you face.

You’ll walk away with tips on how to optimize your virtualized environment -- including identifying issues, trends and opportunities to improve your data protection, along with addressing PCFE-related issues.

Trends, issues and topics to be discussed among others include:

  • Changing data and information accesses patterns including Web 2.0
  • Virtualization evolving from consolidation to massive scaling beyond a single server
  • Emerging hybrid data and storage applications for blade servers and blade centers
  • Virtualization evolving from consolation to IT resource management transparency
  • Complementary technologies to enable virtualized environments including I/O virtualization
  • Data protection for virtualized environments

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to get information that you need, network with true peers and enjoy a great dinner. Seats at this dinner are guaranteed to be claimed quickly, so act today by calling Margo Harney at (781) 657-1374 or applying online.
