It's a another piping hot episode of Speaking in Tech, brought to you live from CommVault's Data Management Summit by your host Greg Knieriemen, who is flying solo this week in the Big Apple. The podcast was recorded live in New York City with special guests W Curtis Preston of media company Truth in IT and David West, VP of Marketing for CommVault. This week we talk about how The Avengers was robbed at the Oscars, Curtis's mad dash around the city in search of a $500 shirt and of course, biz data furtling and how to do this successfully...

They chat about Simpana moving into the enterprise data-management game, the difference between a backup copy and an archived copy, and dusty data on a 10-year-old server you've forgotten you had. They also drill into what constitutes a "proper" snapshot and talk about the challenges of backing up virtualised environments.
