Local businesses from across Dorset took the afternoon out of the office on 2nd May, to attend an event at C4L in Poole about Virtualisation and to find out whether this was the right step for their business.
Pat Conte, Chief Executive from Scale Computing flew over from America to speak at the event talking about Scale, its history and the range of HC3 products available. Also from Scale, Ian Smith, Technical Manager gave a live demonstration of how easy the product is to use. It’s often difficult to explain this, but ‘seeing was definitely believing’ for all attendees!
William Hill and Adrian Bromley from Infosyso spoke about Virtualisation and Backup respectively. Adrian’s example of a recent IT disaster showed how backup is vital to businesses continuity.
Finishing the session was a tour of the datacentre. Seeing the facilities in person, local companies could clearly see how secure their data would be in a datacentre environment.
The event was a fantastic opportunity to find out and see the three areas companies need to consider of virtualisation, backup and disaster recovery.
All in all it was a successful event giving local businesses food for thought on how to protect their business. If you missed this event, then don’t worry, we have another one planned for 11th July, which you can book a place on now by clicking here.
