Cisco’s ‘Data Center Anywhere’ Is Focus Of Sponsorship At Commvault GO

By Bill Byron Concevitch

The data center as we know it is disappearing, and forward-thinking organizations are not only embracing this new reality – they are capitalizing on it. Cisco is leading the way in the race to “Data Center Anywhere,” and this is the focus of the message Cisco’s leadership will share at Commvault GO on Oct. 14-16 in Denver. 

Cisco will be in the spotlight throughout GO in sessions presented by Cisco thought leaders. Also with customers who spotlight how ScaleProtect™ with Cisco UCS® is leading the way (ScaleProtect is Cisco’s integrated offering of Commvault data protection).

Moving the data center to where the data is

“Data Center Anywhere” is the heart of the Cisco data center practice. Siva Sivakumar, Senior Director, Data Center Solutions at Cisco, will deliver a dynamic perspective on this as part of the main GO keynote on Wednesday morning. As the data center walls evaporate, Cisco steps up as the industry leader driving this transformation.

What’s driving the need for data center evolution?   

We hear it all the time from customers: it’s all about driving out complexity and costs, regardless of where the data lives. Gone are the days of forklift upgrades and expensive backup appliances.  Customers are demanding more from their data. 

For a view into how to best manage and protect today’s data, Cisco will present “Cisco & Commvault: Much More Than Backup & Recovery” at GO at 1 p.m. Wednesday. The session details the “much more” that the Cisco-Commvault partnership delivers.

Essential to data center anywhere: Comprehensive data protection and data management

As the data center moves to wherever the data is, comprehensive data protection becomes essential.  While cloud first is the new reality, how does this impact innovation and security, including compliance?  Cisco will explore the trends and challenges impacting data and the business in “The Anywhere Data Center—and How to Protect It” session at GO at 12:15 p.m. Tuesday.

For those wanting to make sure the best defenses are ready to fight Ransomware and other security threats, Cisco data security experts deliver “From Overwhelmed to Empowered: Effective Security for the Modern Enterprise,” featuring real-world successes in avoiding data (and business) disaster when ransomware strikes. This is a session you won’t want to miss at 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

ScaleProtect in action: Customer stories

Several customers share their ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS success stories throughout the GO conference. You’ll hear firsthand how companies are using ScaleProtect as their No. 1 and best option for complete data protection and data management. Here are a few of those sessions:

  • “Solving the Demands of Disaster Recovery” (3:15 p.m. on Wednesday)
  • “A Rock Solid (and Very Compelling) Case for Hyperscaling” (1:30 p.m. on Tuesday)
