By Betsy Doughty
VP, Corporate Marketing, Spectra Logic


This week, Spectra hosted SpectraLIVE Best Practices, a free virtual conference geared towards IT professionals, data storage managers, technology partners and value-added resellers looking to learn more about industry best practices, trends and technology updates. Event presentations provided attendees with expert insight into building a robust backup plan, what’s current in archive, leveraging cloud storage and implementing a storage lifecycle management solution.

Here’s a quick recap of each session:

Building a Robust Backup Strategy has become an increasingly important topic for organizations given the rise of ransomware. Data can also be deleted, corrupted, lost or destroyed by a natural disaster. Watch this webinar with Spectra’s CTO Matt Starr and IT Director Tony Mendoza as they dive a little deeper into the best storage mediums (disk, tape, cloud) for backup. They’ll cover why it is so important to maintain an offline copy of data and how Spectra was able to get up and running after a ransomware attack without having to pay a ransom. Catch it on-demand here. 

What’s New in Archive was discussed by Spectra’s Vice President of Sales Chris Shannon and Solutions Architect Steve Paulson. During the session, they reviewed the six tenets of archive and how modern storage strategies can help solve data growth challenges by moving data to a more affordable archive to free up expensive but valuable primary storage for instant access to mission-critical data.

Optimizing Cloud Storage and key insights on how to maximize its effectiveness was the subject of a presentation by Spectra’s Product Marketing Manager Eric Polet and Technology Evangelist Bob Cone. Many organizations have integrated cloud into their workflows in some facet.

How to Implement a Storage Lifecycle Management Solution, the last webinar in the event, was presented by Spectra’s Product Management Director Jeff Braunstein and James DiVito, director of solutions services at OpenDrives.
