You’re Wrong About Data Protection Policy

This episode of the On-Premise IT Roundtable was recorded at Tech Field Day Extra at Dell Technologies and looks at data protection policies. The group discusses why you’re probably doing it wrong. Essentially business and compliance needs are not top of mind when these policies are established. They further discuss how vendor defaults and application owners add to the confusion.


Hammerspace – Unstructured Data Anywhere

Adam Fisher was one of the delegates at Tech Field Day last month, and got to hear from Hammerspace as they came out of stealth. They are a new player in the emerging Data as a Service market, and offer a solution that decouples data from the underlying storage. This removes this as a concern for the consumer, who interacts with data via a global namespace. Adam gets into the detail and breaks down the components in this piece.


Protection for your backup data from Dell EMC Cyber Recovery

At Tech Field Day, Adam Fisher got to hear from Dell EMC Protect, and about their latest solution Dell EMC Cyber Recovery 18.1. This creates a “air-gapped” vault within infrastructure to make sure your backups remain secure from ransomware and other attacks. For Adam, this provides vital protection for an often overlooked avenue of exploit.

Adam Fisher attended his first Tech Field Day as a delegate earlier this month, after getting a taste of the experience at Tech Field Day Extra at VMworld US 2018. This post catalogs his experience with the event, which he describes as “amazing.” For him, the technical deep dives and in-depth conversations really highlighted for far Adam has come in his career already, and inspired him to stay hungry to learn more. We hope to see him as a delegate at another event soon.
