85% of companies have a hybrid cloud environment

 73% of large enterprises plan to use the public cloud for backup, archive and DR

Companies rank “data protection,” “IT visibility” and “rapid data growth” among their top storage challenges. How the organization visualizes, manages and protects data, has become just as important as how much capacity the organization provides for data.

Virtualized storage (implemented through software in storage systems or software-defined storage) can dramatically increase operational efficiency, reduce administrative costs, improve data security, and provide cloud-based backup and disaster-recovery capabilities. It also can add these capabilities to storage you own.

Stream this session as we address how organizations can link on-premises storage with public cloud storage while retaining flexibility without introducing new complexity or requiring significant new capital investment. 

As part of the presentation, there is a demonstration of a multi-cloud solution for business continuity using IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud on AWS and IBM Storage Insights which allows companies to optimize storage infrastructure using a cloud-based storage management and support platform with predictive analytics.
