BOSTON (PRWEB) October 01, 2020
Alternative cloud provider Linode will host a complimentary live webinar on one of the most pertinent topics in cloud computing today: data protection. Linode’s Fall lineup also includes an on-demand, 12-episode series on Linux Security and a Kubernetes lab on orchestrating workloads with Zeebe. These virtual sessions are the latest to be offered by Linode as a part of its new Linode LIVE! Events program.
October’s Featured Webinar
“Data Protection in the Cloud: The Move to Holistic Backup and Retention” will be held on October 14 at 2 PM ET.
As the commoditization of configuration management and application installation continues at an unprecedented pace, data is quickly becoming the only irreplaceable part of technology systems. Data protection, in turn, is becoming an increasing priority for business of all sizes. The “Data Protection in the Cloud” webinar will provide the latest overview of the data backup and recovery market and address how a holistic data protection scheme solves the problems inherent in block-based and file-based techniques. Participants will also learn how to prevent data from being at risk from outside actors, logical process failure and external failures.
Hosted by Hillary Wilmoth, director of product marketing at Linode, this webinar will feature Gigaom research analyst Enrico Signoretti and James Hunt, director of research and development for Linode partner Stark & Wayne.
