Building a Robust Backup Strategy

Matt Starr, CTO, Spectra and Tony Mendoza, Sr Director of IT, Spectra
Backup is simply safeguarding or protecting the data that is being used by copying that data. Data can accidentally (and purposefully – think ransomware) be deleted, corrupted, lost, fall victim to natural disaster. With ransomware on the rise, there has been no better time to discuss and re-evaluate backup strategies. We’ve all heard of quintessential 3-2-1 strategy but we’ll dive in a little deeper to discuss the best storage mediums (disk, tape, cloud) for backing up your businesses’ lifeblood – its data. We’ll cover why it is so important to maintain an offline copy of data and you’ll hear first-hand from Spectra about how it was able to walk away from a ransomware attack without having to pay ransom.

What’s New in Archive?

Chris Shannon, RVP, Spectra and Steve Paulson, Senior Solutions Architect, Spectra
Data Archiving is an essential part of the data storage workflow. That’s because rarely accessed data still needs a place to live. Without a proper archive strategy in place, inactive data sits on high-cost, primary storage, despite it not being accessed or changed. Moving data to a more affordable archive tier frees up expensive but valuable primary storage for instant access to mission-critical data. During this session we’ll review the seven tenets of archive and how modern storage strategies can help you solve your data growth challenges.
