Business Continuity in the cloud era:
In today’s highly automated infrastructures the traditional way of performing business continuity tasks just does not work anymore. It is time for both organizational and technical measures that match the granular control and automation possibilities that you expect today. Where business continuity was once set by schedules, scripts and procedures it can now be configured based on policies and will be highly automated.
That is why the cloud architects of Weolcan have teamed up with the Backup & Recovery experts of Rubrik to deliver you insights into a new technology that can easily be compared with the level of disruption that Nutanix showed with its hyper-converged infrastructures.
About the organizers:
This event is organized by the Cloud architects at Weolcan. This Amsterdam based cloud consultancy firm is vendor independent and works with large national and multi-national customers to develop and execute their cloud strategy. For this event they were able to bring to Amsterdam the CEO and CTO of a company that they think is about to shake up the market.
