HPE VM Explorer Demo Days

Imagine being able to backup Microsoft and VMware VM environments all at once – simply, automatically, and affordably – with the capability of restoring your data at any point quickly and easily.

Although it sounds like magic, that’s exactly what you can do with VM Explorer if you’re looking to deploy a backup solution designed specifically to address the needs of smaller businesses who have virtualized data centers.

  • Do you have limited IT staff and time to focus on backup?
  • Are you highly virtualized to reduce IT complexity and costs?
  • Do you want to sleep better at night knowing your virtual environment is protected?
  • Can you replicate your critical VMs to a backup facility or recover a VM instantly?
  • Would you like to back up your VMs to a cloud vendor like Amazon or Rackspace?
  • Do you see your existing virtual backup options as too expensive and complicated to learn?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then join us for this 45 minute session to hear our subject matter experts review how you can use HPE VM Explorer to improve your recoverability while controlling cost and time impacts.

Proven Strategy to Calm Cloud Security Fears

About the Webinar

While organizations are keen to reap benefits the cloud offers, many fall shy of adoption for two reasons: security and control. How do organizations maintain compliance, control, and ownership of sensitive data as they move from the physical environment to a cloud world when the distribution of data may not be completely controlled by the data owner, and there is liability confusion as cloud service providers take on a larger role? Join ISC2 for part 1 of a 3 part Security Briefings series examining the key security challenges faced when moving to the Cloud.

BITUG BIG SIG and Education Day

  • HPE Offices

This year we have a change from our normal schedule and the BIG SIG will be held at Trinity House on 12th May. Preceding this on the 11th May there will be and Education Day at the new HPE offices in London. T

The day will comprise the usual mix of plenary keynote sessions and multi-track slots from both our user community and solution providers. Plus the Vendor Fair, which gives you the chance to chat with HPE and our vendors about the latest hardware kit plus labour-saving and security-improving software and services.

The day is a must-visit event for anyone in the British Isles NonStop community who care about keeping up with the latest news and developments which are 100% relevant to us.




The 2016 Education Day is free for BITUG User members to attend.

HPE’s Vince Cooper and Keith Charters will be repeating December 2015's 'sold-out' presentation which took an in-dept look at migration from Blades to the new NSX boxes.

As with last year, space is limited to just 24 attendees, so register early because we expect it will be another sell-out. If you register and later find you're unable to attend, please let us know so we can cancel your ticket and free the space up for someone else to attend.

Once the spaces are full we'll be starting a reserve list. You can contact us to put your name on the reserve list.

Venue: HPE Offices, 1 Alderman Square, London EC2V 7HR.

Date: 11th May 2016
