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.
Two Commvault Customer Champions will share how Commvault enabled them to respond quickly, effectively and precisely to today’s data demands. Kira Blackwell, a NASA Program Executive, will share her experience with Commvault and how NASA ITech is protecting its innovative and cutting-edge technologies.
The main stage will also feature Don Wisdom, Senior Director of Infrastructure Operations for the State of Colorado. Don will share his story about how Commvault helped the state recover data following a SamSam ransomware attack – and how its robust backup and security tools kept it from paying ransomware.
Also sharing their Commvault experiences during main stage presentations are:
- Amy Jo Rector
Technical Supervisor, Enterprise Backups, GEICO
- A business-savvy technical leader with 17 years of experience, Amy Jo knows the importance and criticality of having a sound and efficient backup strategy – for GEICO, and at home. From designing and rearchitecting GEICO’s SAN infrastructure to leading the enterprise backups division, Amy knows her stuff.
- Paul Furlan
Systems Administrator, Herbalife
- Paul goes above and beyond in his role as a Systems Administrator at Herbalife. Self-described “jack of all trades, master of some,” Paul mixes humor with his expertise to ensure his company’s data is ready for anything: with certifications in troubleshooting, Windows servers and disaster recovery, among others, and experience at companies ranging from Bank of America to Flextronics.
- Josiah Burke
Senior Directory Services Engineer, State of Wisconsin
- Josiah is the Senior Directory Services Engineer for one of Wisconsin’s largest state agencies; a public speaker; motorcycle road racing competitor; and a career IT contractor. Ask him about Powershell, Commvault business logic workflows, or how not to cook pasta.
- Matthew Magbee
Data Center Manager, Sonic Healthcare USA
- A passionate Data Center Manager at Sonic Healthcare USA and VMUG leader, Matthew Magbee channels his passions through his work to elevate disaster recovery, virtual machine management and data protection within the healthcare industry.
