The details of the events as below.
IDC Topic Expert – General Overview for Availability in Modern DCs
As high availability proliferates in many verticals in the region, it is also becoming increasingly virtual and focused on infrastructure workloads. IT is moving towards the use the built-in high availability capabilities of virtual machines, displacing traditional solutions. These also offer better cost in relation to typical high-availability implementations which, over the next few years, should move environments further towards the Cloud. This session will discuss how new technologies are being adopted in the Middle East and transforming IT to be provided through highly available and hybrid datacenters.
Availability Challenges in the Modern Data Center
As more and more business critical applications are being virtualised and as cloud adoption grows, people are experiencing new data protection and management challenges within their modern datacenter.

Availability for the modern Data Center
Doug Hazelman, VP or Product Strategy for Veeam, will present how requirements for backup have changed and how with the modern datacenter the need today is for availability. It’s no longer acceptable for Recovery Point and Recovery Time objectives to be measured in hours and days, see how Veeam can deliver RTPO of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data.
