One Backup to Rule them All: Backup Exec16

In conjunction with Spiceworks, we surveyed over 900 IT professionals on data protection trends across virtual, physical and cloud platforms.  Join this webinar to learn about the “Future of Backup and Recovery”. It could be your path to saving time and money. We’ll focus on why:

  • Backup of data and apps in physical systems still accounts for 47% of the market… but not for long.
  • Workloads are increasingly moving to cloud-based systems over the next 3 years… and the top two are backup and recovery and disaster recovery.
  • Backup Exec™ – used by 42% of organizations surveyed – remains the predominant solution for data protection.
