ZertoCON 2019 Day Three: Zerto Closes Strong on A Grand Ole Show in Nashville
Wow! What a tremendous three days it’s been in Nashville! From the delicious eats to the boot-stomping country music, to inspiring keynotes, gracious customers and partners alike, our last day of ZertoCON 2019 ended on a high note.
Our final guest speaker, Phil Goodwin, research director at IDC, offered an insightful look into The State of IT Resilience where he explored new findings, trends and his predictions on the future of IT and business resilience. He encouraged everyone to involve business leaders and executives in DR planning. This will be important because his survey found that over the next two years 93.4 percent of respondents are likely to pursue convergence of backup and DR tools to eliminate redundancy.
In the last keynote of the conference, Rob Strechay, SVP of Product, Zerto, discussed where Zerto has been and where we are going. Last year at this conference we promised Zerto 7, and this year we are happy to be able to say, we delivered.
Rob, with the help of Technology Evangelist Gijsbert Janssen van Doorn, detailed Zerto’s new converged IT Resilience Platform, including enhancements to DR, backup, multi-cloud and hybrid cloud, migration capabilities, orchestrations and analytics. It’s one platform and one license to protect, place and retain your data.
Between keynotes, there were packed breakout sessions, giving customers the chance to learn from Zerto’s many partners and company experts. The sessions ranged from technical how-to’s to certification labs that sparked new approaches to delivering IT operations without disruption, while enabling digital transformation. Highlights included:
- AWS, You Got What I Need
- Good Migrations
- She Thinks My ZVM is Sexy
- Oops!…I encrypted it again
- Achy, Breaky Backup
- Guitars, Cadillacs and Zerto Analytics
