V-Ray – The End of the Dark Ages of Virtualization, Jason Dowzell1
Symantec’s V-Ray technology allows organisations to see what’s inside virtual machines (VMs) so they can secure, protect, backup and recover both virtual and physical machines.
Extensive virtualization is just a fact of life in IT today and it is no longer just on the periphery. With an increasing number of complex workloads wrapped up in VMs, customers of all sizes are challenged to maintain the same degree of security and protection from their virtual environments as they get from their physical environment whilst leveraging the benefits brought about by virtualization. Attaining the service levels for these business systems requires a high degree of visibility into virtual environments.
Find out from this session how by using our V-Ray technology you can securely protect both virtualized & physical environments, quickly recover data from disk or tape, auto-discover new VMs and many more exciting enhancements from the leader in VMWare backup.

Storage and Information management Theatre
11.50am-12.20pm: Get the Private Cloud You Want, from the Infrastructure You’ve Got, Simon Wallace
There are many benefits in Private Cloud Architectures for Enterprise IT environments, but how do you get there? Transforming your existing DataCentre to a Private Cloud is a complex endeavour and involves changes to operational processes and attitudes as well as changes to technology. And changing your technology infrastructure isn’t always easy. A “Rip-and-Replace” strategy may be the simplest but this is often cost-prohibitive. A “Transformation” strategy gives you the ability to re-use your existing hardware platforms and migrate to a Cloud architecture in a phased approach and within timescales that make sense for your business. This session will help you understand the key attributes of a Resilient Private Cloud, how Cloud Architectures can be built on existing hardware, and the path to transforming your existing DataCentre at a pace that is right for your business.

Securing and Managing an Information-Driven World
Customers of all sizes are faced with one essential challenge: the need to secure and manage an enormous amount of information. We all live and work in an information-driven world. Information is the lifeblood of modern business and, increasingly, of modern life. Each year, the amount of information we create increases exponentially and securing and managing our information-driven world becomes even more important and challenging. Customers are increasingly concerned about how to secure and manage their increasing amounts of information – from digital photos to business critical data.
Securing and managing all this information is a tough job.
Symantec is a global leader in providing security, storage and systems management solutions to help our customers – from consumers and small businesses to the largest global organizations – secure and manage their information against more risks at more points, more completely and efficiently than any other company. Our company’s unique focus is to eliminate risks to information, technology and processes independent of the device, platform, interaction or location.
