HyperScale technology can help businesses use and exploit rapidly growing volumes of data, all while protecting it, keeping budgets in check and meeting service goals.
Participants of the first Commvault Connections Live event held in the Middle East also learnt how IT agility can be achieved through scale-out infrastructure, at the one-day thought leadership forum which took place in Dubai yesterday.
The event brought together industry experts, analysts, Commvault customers and partners from across the globe to discuss digital business transformation. It provided hands-on perspective on how to protect, manage and use the data that’s driving ongoing digital trends in the region to kickstart their strategy for innovation and industry growth. Local and regional customers attending the event included Dubai Police, Dubai Municipality and Emirates Steel.
Wael Mustafa, area vice president for the Middle East, South Africa and Turkey (MESAT) for Commvault, said: “Our customers have demonstrated the advantages for organisations across multiple sectors in modernising their data backup and recovery platforms, ensuing that their information is readily available, cost-efficient and easy to manage. We are excited to further grow our regional network alongside our partners and customers, and illustrate how Commvault can help businesses transform their data into strategic assets,” added Mustafa.
Gartner’s principal analyst, Santhosh Rao, commented on Middle East datacentre trends and how to improve the backup, recovery and management of data. Other sessions covered movement to the Cloud and how to build business foundations that accommodate the latest trends in data. Sponsoring the event were Fujitsu and Cisco, as well as Logicom, StorIT, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei and Cell Info.
