Title: Why the Cloud is Perfect for Data Protection

While more companies are now leveraging the cloud to increase their level of data protection and management, there are still many wondering “why?”  The answer:  the cloud actually brings substantial advancements to the data protection and management table that simply aren’t possible without it. The easiest advantage to envision? Unlimited scalability. If a data protection tool is properly designed, the capacity should automatically expand to meet any customer’s needs. The second advantage: the cloud is the simplest way to centralize the storage of all secondary data sources while also providing unlimited compute that can be used to gain additional insight and business value from that data. Finally, the ability to do automated Disaster Recovery (DR) without maintaining a DR facility is unquestionably a major value of the cloud, and simply isn’t possible otherwise.

Key Takeaways:
1. An understanding of the diverging cost models of premises and cloud based infrastructures
2. A view into the impact of global regulation as it relates to premises and cloud based solutions
3. A perspective on the growth of SaaS as an industry in terms of requirements fulfilled for enterprise and how that is changing the landscape and the evolution of the data center.
4. Predictive data analytics for cloud data management and devops in cloud use cases and application of artificial intelligence in dev and production clouds.
