Needham, MA (PRWEB) April 27, 2011
According to Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, people now create as much information every 2 days as we did from the dawn of civilization until 2003. As this explosion of data continues, companies are struggling with managing their growing stores of archival data.
B&L Associates, Inc., the leader in open systems tape management solutions, will be addressing the data explosion problem at Symantec Vision 2011 with a seminar entitled "Archival Data Management: Strategies & Solutions." The session will cover practical strategies to help manage archived data, including simply defining what constitutes archival data, looking at compliancy regulations, and discussing the tools and solutions that are available to companies struggling with this problem.
"Companies are trying to figure out how to deal with the amount of data they produce every day and hopefully this session will provide some insights on how to do just that," explains Michael Kramer, VP Sales and Marketing at B&L Associates. "For example, studies show that inactive data consumes an average of 60% of the catalog backup process. This data should be archived. But knowing what data should be archived is just the beginning. You also need to be concerned with how to properly archive data, how to recover it if needed, and how this all fits within compliancy regulations."
B&L is a Symantec Technology Enabled Partner. As such, many of B&L's products including Vertices, VaultLedger, and Archived Data Manger have been developed to work seamlessly with Symantec NetBackup and Backup Exec. B&L will also be exhibiting at the show at booth 312.
