How to reduce the cost and complexity of data protection by eliminating the numerous tools that have been deployed within traditional data centers. How many data protection products are you currently using to protect your data? 1. One for Backup 2. Another for Replication 3. What about application and database support? 4. And something else for Virtual environments? In this presentation, InMage will explain the benefits of a single Continuous Data Protection (CDP) data management solution that is non-intrusive, has a low cost of entry and combines both Backup and Disaster Recovery into a tool that reduces complexity while increasing IT productivity.
