  • (1888PressRelease) September 02, 2011 - Agoura Hills / (CA) USA - The ExecEvent, a unique technology networking and business development event, today announced its cloud and virtualization data protection panel members, which will include NovaStor's Managing Director, Mike Andrews. The "Data Protection for Cloud and Virtualized Environments" panel discussion will take place during the upcoming three-day Virtualization & Cloud event, September 14-16 at the Network Meeting Center in Santa Clara, Calif. The panel further rounds out an already dynamic roster of networking opportunities, keynote addresses and presentations from prominent leaders and visionaries from the storage, networking, virtualization and cloud computing industries.

    Moderated by W. Curtis Preston of TruthInIT, "Data Protection for Cloud and Virtualized Environments" will shine light on the various technologies available to help companies protect their data in today's changing marketplace. A group of leading vendors, including NovaStor's Mike Andrews, will discuss the roles their respective technologies play and how they see their technologies adapting to customer realities. The one-hour panel starts at 9 a.m. on September 16. Other participants in the panel include Symantec's Global Cloud Marketing Executive as well as the CEOs of BridgeSTOR, Arkeia, and Bocada.

    "My panel will attempt to get to the truth in how various cloud and virtualization technologies play in real-world situations to help customers make informed decisions on what will be best for their particular environment," said Preston. "While the focus remains on protecting data, the question emerges as to what the best way to do that is. What might be right for one might not be right for another. I look forward to hosting the discussion with these leading vendors to explore the possibilities available."

Curtis Preston's panel and sharing my insights on today's quickly advancing cloud backup and virtualization technologies," said Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor and ExecEvent panel participant.
