Hybrid Cloud Strategy for Dummies

Other vital choices come close behind. Architects and engineers must deal with an array of connections, integrations, portability issues among clouds, resource options, orchestration, storage, and more.

How to Buy Backup and Recovery: A Customer’s Evaluation

This book is meant to be a quick read to provide insight on overcoming common obstacles when choosing enterprise backup and recovery technology. This book began when the author (a Frost Bank IT professional) set out to update his backup technology. As he performed online searches, he was unable to find credible information on new technologies to help him change his enterprise backup space paradigm. He wanted something different that could restore more quickly than his existing platform and take more frequent backups, including intra-day restore points. He also wanted something easier for his teams to use, with minimal training required to become fully operational. In the end analysis, his hope is to provide readers with the valuable insights he wished someone had shared with him during his search for the backup "promised land".

Managed Security Service Providers for Dummies
