The essential guide to IT transformation

Reg TV Is your VMware backup under control? No, we thought not. Virtualisation has achieved many wonderful things - but it has complicated data protection and backup, where organisations see increasing recovery times, a lack of granularity, and inconsistency between back up and disaster recovery regimes.

Does this this sound like you? If it is, then our latest Regcast, Backing up your VMware environment will help sort out the problem. On offer was, practical advice to diagnose your problems, set the right goal, and resolve the dilemma of agent-based or agentless data protection.

Despite last week's storm, our panel were able to make it to our London studio and tell you your RPO from your RTO so you can achieve CDP. We had Adrian Moir and Jaap van Kleef from Dell Software, and Charles “New blood” Brett who, having joined Freeform Dynamics, is now forced to spend time in the studio listening to nickname jokes cracked by El Reg questionmaster Tim Phillips.

Watch the on demand replay agent and agentless banter, from the comfort of your screen. ®
