Storage Decisions has partnered with one of the field's foremost independent experts - George Crump, President and Founder of Storage Switzerland - to bring you a free, full-day seminar and certification workshop titled A Toolkit for Comprehensive Data Protection. Brand new for 2014, this training event provides you with everything you need to know to ensure that data spread across an infrastructure, including multiple data centers, cloud services, satellite offices, home offices and even hotel rooms, airports and your local coffee shops is adequately protected from known and unknown threats.

George Crump brings 25-years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers. During the event, he presents two sessions covering the specific backup and DR issues related to all of the environments above. He then shows you how to best test your own knowledge and application of today's technologies during a hands-on, interactive, certification workshop where you have the option to collaborate with your peers to solve two real-world scenarios pulled straight from today's DR front lines.

Whether you're an IT professional involved in the design or implementation of data protection architectures, or responsible for ensuring that your organization's data is protected and recoverable, we guarantee you will return to your office with a collection of tools, tips and resources to help you:

· Simplify and remove deduplication from data protection efforts
· Reduce data synchronization issues and the inability to keep pace with data changes
· Overcome impediments to data protection caused by server virtualization
· Align data protection and data recovery priorities
· Eliminate the misuse of backup/disaster recovery media and other resources
· Meet the diverse demands of environments ranging from physical and/or virtual servers to mobile users, remote/branch offices, cloud-based apps, big data infrastructures and more.

Building a successful data protection toolkit not only requires addressing the specific requirements of applications, business processes and users, but it's also about management and the degree to which the tools, processes and data copies can be integrated. Find out what can and cannot be integrated, what steps can be taken to improve integration and how you can most effectively handle application scenarios that defy integration during this one day seminar.
