Cloud First Data Protection & How to Offer DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service)


Gavin Cross – N-able Sales Engineer


During this presentation Gavin will take you through the economics behind cloud-first data protection including the hidden (and not so hidden) costs of continuing to manage backup using either an image-based software product or an integrated appliance. Gavin will show how you can eliminate the “below the water” hidden costs of traditional backup and how you can deliver DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) without an expensive appliance with greater value. You’ll see how this can be achieved with examples of Australian-based MSPs. Door prize for members: Zero X Drone
