We’re About to Have a (Cloud) Field Day with Data Management as a Service (DMaaS)

February 10, 2022

By David Ngo – CTO of Metallic, Commvault’s DMaaS portfolio

Enterprises of all sizes are quickly realizing they need to be proactive and smart in how they manage their data, particularly by making sure their data is secure, protected from today’s threats, and can be recovered rapidly on a moment’s notice. If not, they run the risk of putting the integrity of their businesses in jeopardy. You may be asking yourself OK, but how? What does it mean to be “smarter” or “proactive” when it comes to data management? And how can I manage my data when it lives in a growing number of unique (and disconnected) systems and environments.

That’s where we come in.

I’m thrilled to announce we’re participating in Cloud Field Day 13 on February 17th from 1:00 – 3:00 pm PT, where I and a team of Commvault and Metallic experts will join the best independent thought leaders in enterprise cloud for 2 hours  of rock-‘em, sock-‘em technical deep dives, debates, and of course demos.

As Metallic’s CTO, I’ll be leading the discussion on managing data across newly adopted hybrid cloud environments and SaaS applications. I’ll be joined by Commvault’s Vice President of Products, Ranga Rajagopalan, who will cover Intelligent Data Services and how they can span beyond just data protection to data security, data compliance, data transformation, and more.

Completing the trifecta will be our security expert and Sr. Director of Metallic Products and Strategy, Indu Peddibhotla. He’ll join us to tackle topics like ransomware detection, recovery, and security in the cloud. We’ll also answer questions about our Metallic portfolio and how you can use one software platform to protect and manage everything from VMs and Containers to Office 365, Active Directory, and beyond.  Our demonstration guru, Michael Przybos, will also be on hand to provide the all-important customer view to our delegates.  

Whether you’re early on in your cloud transformation, mid-stream, or running a fully cloud-based environment, you’ll learn tips and best practices for better safeguards and response strategies while speeding up hybrid cloud and SaaS app adoption – all from a single solution.

The upcoming Cloud Field Day is taking place live in Santa Clara, Calif., but fear not! This is a hybrid event, and you can join the live stream and be part of the conversation in real time on social media using the hashtag CFD13.

We would love for you to join us by watching the live stream which will be available right here on this blog pageor or via Gestalt’s LinkedIn. Looking at the high caliber of the delegates that Stephen Foskett and Gestalt IT have gathered, I expect a lively conversation and, to be honest, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

You don’t want to miss it!

Make sure you add the Cloud Field Day 13 Metallic session to your Calendar!
