I don’t know about the rest of you, but I can’t wait to get to Denver for Commvault GO, the premier data readiness event! Am I ready though? Well, let’s see what I need to really be ready for this year!
This is the third and final blog in the series looking at how NetApp and Commvault jointly solve the biggest issues relating to cloud data management. In the first piece, I looked at public cloud, then Jeff Leeds from NetApp did a really thought-provoking guest blog that looked at hybrid cloud and multi cloud approaches to data. This time, I turn my sights to on-premises cloud.
There has never been a better time to be in IT. With so many compelling, new technologies simultaneously converging, IT professionals have endless choices to advance their modernization initiatives and multi cloud strategies. However, they must first rein in the sprawling infrastructure, applications and environmental chaos they endure today. I get it – I’ve sat with you on the other side of the table when I was a CIO.
I am “More Than Ready” for my first Commvault GO (Oct. 14-16)! I don’t know if I’m lightheaded because of the imminent Denver altitude or from the excitement of being in the beautiful state of Colorado with so many Commvault customers. Either way, I can’t wait to hear the amazing customer stories that will be shared during our three-day conference.
If you are anything like me, you likely have a project, or multiple projects, ongoing at any given point. One of my current projects is organizing and displaying my Beatles music collection, which might explain the titles and subtitles!
Cloud migration, hybrid cloud data protection and multi cloud data recovery – those are just three of the big cloud topics at Commvault GO. Join the premier data readiness event to get the insights you need to accelerate your cloud data projects.
When was the last time you thought about data protection for your Office 365 environment?
Office 365 is a solid offering that includes a wide range of communication, collaboration and other capabilities. Microsoft has done a good job at building out a worldwide infrastructure that is generally quite solid and reliable.
I’ve been a Commvault system engineer for seven years and I have seen my fair share of hurricanes, especially since I cover the Carolinas. So what have I learned over these past seven years of protecting the data of those in the path of the storm? You can never be more prepared.
I am excited to be part of the 2019 #CommvaultGO Social Media Ambassadors Program, and indeed very honored to have been be asked to be its first chair.
So what exactly is a #CommvaultGO Social Media Ambassador, and what is it they do for you? Well, I’m glad you asked.
How time flies! School’s back in, the commute has gotten heavier and pumpkin spice is showing up in everything already! All this, but I’m excited for Commvault GO coming up in October. What’s Commvault GO?
Given that fall is a stone’s throw away, football season is in high gear and everyone is still optimistic about their team’s chances (except Dolphins fans). I’d like to paraphrase the famous poet Hank Williams Jr., who said, “Are you ready for some … Commvault GO?” See what I did there?
The Avengers movies have delivered action, fantasy and, at times, unexpected food for thought. Like this one: “You can’t be a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man if there’s no neighborhood.”
Just like an all-you-can eat buffet, there are endless choices of infrastructure modernization sessions at Commvault GO, the premier data readiness event. In fact, there are more than 120 sessions. The best part is you will hear from your peers as more than 70 percent of the sessions are led by Commvault customers, industry analysts and technology partners.
This past week, my 14 year-old daughter participated as part of the Global Climate Strike in Philadelphia. It was inspiring to see her and so many people around the world mobilizing in advance of this week’s UN’s Climate Action Summit. It is a sign of what’s possible, a show of solidarity, and gives us hope that together we can be a force.
Every year I enjoy taking part in the predictions for the next year. Sometimes I am right, sometimes I am way off and many times I scratch my head and think, “Wow, that didn’t go as I thought!”
Welcome to the second part of Service Pack 17 highlights. Be sure to read part one if you haven’t already done so.
For us in the northern hemisphere, September is bittersweet. Bitter because it marks the end of summer, at which point many of the local attractions around headquarters close for the upcoming cooler months. However, for us vaulters it is also very sweet indeed, as we saw the third major Commvault product release of the year ushered in with Service Pack 17.
The data protection training you need is at Commvault GO. Whether you are just starting out in a data protection career or an advanced power user, there is an education course for everyone at the premier data readiness event.
As a former CIO turned CEO, I can’t help but be excited about the rapidly shifting technology landscape. For years, IT leaders have tried everything to compress and minimize the cost, footprint and complexity of managing the ever-increasing deluge of data. I know, I was one of them.
Make no mistake: the recent announcement of the Hedvig acquisition is going to profoundly affect how Commvault moves forward as a company and as a platform.
