Commvault hosts second annual Connections Live event in Joburg
The event will focus on cloud readiness, cloud adoption and HyperScale, with Commvault advising attendees how to manage IT complexity in the cloud.
Commvault, a recognised global enterprise software leader in the management of data for cloud and on-premises environments, will be hosting its second Connections Live event in SA. The event takes place on 16 July at The Venue in Melrose Arch, and this year’s focus is on hot topics such as cloud readiness, cloud adoption and HyperScale.
Technology guru and celebrity technologist Aki Anastasiou will act as master of ceremonies at the event. He will deliver a keynote address and moderate a panel discussion on cloud adoption in SA that includes industry experts from Commvault, as well as its customers and partners.
“The cloud is top of mind for every chief technology officer and chief information officer, but what does this mean for their data and backup, and their data management strategy?” says Wael Mustafa, area vice-president for the Middle East, SA and Turkey (MESAT) at Commvault.
“Migrating to the cloud without considering the implications for your data is a critical error. Businesses need to have effective data management in place to ensure they are multi-cloud ready.
“Catering to demand for IT in today’s world requires businesses to seamlessly make provision for and add compute, memory, networking and storage resources. The increasing trend towards multi-cloud strategies is fuelling a renewed focus on data management, migration and security, so Connections Live provides the perfect forum to discuss these topics,” he adds.
Connections Live aims to help local businesses address their data challenges, and highlights how the Commvault suite of solutions and partner networks is able to resolve them. This event is an ideal opportunity for Commvault partners, customers and potential customers to network, connect and share experiences. It provides a platform for attendees to explore ways of simplifying data management across multi-cloud environments before making the move.
