Citizens count on government to provide critical -- sometimes lifesaving -- services. Reliable access to data is critical to fulfilling your mission. Now more than ever, you need the flexibility to reshape your IT environment based on evolving (and frequently unpredictable) demands.

Join us September 2 at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET for a special 30-minute Lunch and Learn webinar in which our experts provide a roadmap for anyone looking to build a ‘data-centric, location-agnostic’ data storage and management system that combines the control of the enterprise with the agility of cloud.

You’ll learn:

  • How to benefit from limitless data storage capacity and enterprise storage functionality delivered on a pay-for-consumption “utility” basis
  • Requirements of a successful enterprise storage-as-a-service deployment, including capabilities such as seamless integration between cloud-based and on-premises storage
