Commvault highlights thought leadership at Microsoft Ignite

By Bill Byron Concevitch

Like most industry events this year, Microsoft Ignite will be different than in years past, going completely virtual from Sept. 22-24. While this change doesn’t allow us to gather together in one place, we still have the opportunity to share and learn.

Here’s a quick rundown of sessions you’ll want to add to your personal agenda:

Ask The Expert: Ask Me Anything About Hybrid Cloud with Azure

8 – 8:30 a.m. EDT | Wednesday, Sept. 23

This panel of industry experts will tackle your toughest questions from your hybrid cloud journey – no matter where you are on your journey. Hosted by ESG’s lead analyst, Christophe Bertrand, this is your opportunity to gain multiple perspectives on topics that matter to you. Be ready to ask, learn and then take action on feedback from the panel, which includes Microsoft’s Saurabh Sensharma and Commvault’s Brian Brockway, Randy De Meno and Vidya Shankaran.

Connection Zone: Data Protection meets SaaS – An IT Love Story

6:30 a.m. – 7 a.m. EDT | Thursday, Sept. 24

The pandemic drove remote work, fast cloud migration and broad Microsoft 365 implementations. At the same time, it also led to data security risks – ransomware attacks, end-user endpoint challenges and data accessibility issues. Bring your questions and join Metallic’s Janet Giesen and David Ngo to hear the inside scoop of an IT love story – the unique benefits of SaaS-delivered data protection, including key topics such as Microsoft 365, endpoint and VM backup and recovery.

Ransomware happens: Why Microsoft 365 and endpoints need backup

The recent shift in remote work has accelerated cloud and SaaS adoption, while making it more important than ever to reduce risks from potential threats like ransomware. Learn protection strategies you can apply to safeguard your business. Join Microsoft’s Vamshidhar Kommineni and Metallic’s David Ngo to learn about the unique benefits of SaaS-delivered data protection for Microsoft 365 and endpoints – powered by Azure – and how to minimize your risk from malicious threats.

We’ll also have a can’t miss special segment featuring Commvault’s President & CEO, Sanjay Mirchandani, and Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President for Azure Networking and Storage, Tad Brockway, discussing customer success with Azure and Metallic SaaS.
