Backup & Recovery with Alex Almeida
Alex Almeida is the Senior Technical Manager from EMC’s Backup & Recovery Systems Division, and a backup guy from way-back. With the recent big announcements from EMC around most of its backup and recovery products I thought this would be an excellent time to get Alex on the podcast to talk through some of the new features and enhancements from the announcement.
We also cover the topics of how EMC has stayed ahead of the curve regarding backup and recover over the years, along with the increasing trend and benefits in moving the ability to backup and restore at the application level, and empowering end users and application administrators.
The importance of backup and recovery has traditionally been overlooked by many in the industry, though luckily this has changed in recent years, and with the introduction of many exciting new backup and recovery technologies on the market has made this area a far cry from the days of old where working with backups were just plain boring and uncool.
