In 2007, exploding data growth and increasing pressure to protect that data from disasters, fraud and stiff regulations is changing the way storage professionals are expected to manage operations. Ever-changing technology and business considerations are fueling a sweeping change in storage networking fundamentals.

Figuring out how to treat data as information with a specific, classified value will allow storage-focused IT professionals to manage storage systems more efficiently and truly align storage operations with their organizations' strategic initiatives. Storage Decisions 2007, December 4-6 in San Francisco, addresses these issues head-on with in-depth, educational sessions. Download the materials from those sessions here.

As in the past, Storage Decisions is a multi-track event. The tracks include:

  • Disaster Recovery

  • Executive

  • Tiered Storage and Data Classification

  • Data Protection and Backup

  • Building Enterprise Storage Networks


  • TRACK 1: DISASTER RECOVERY
    Traditional data protection has finally started to shift towards a recovery-centric paradigm. Storage is now at the cusp of an entirely new discipline: Recovery Management. This track explores how users can coordinate a range of data protection technologies to create more recoverable infrastructures. Restructuring your recovery methods can also help you recover the right data at the right time and in the right manner.
