Convirture Announces Webinar: Automated Backup for Open Source Virtualization

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Convirture announces a free webinar on Thursday, May 1 that will show policy-based backup and restore capabilities for large-scale, mission-critical virtualization with open source Linux virtualization.

"KVM and Xen don't come with native backup and restore tools, so organizations have traditionally had to cobble together scripts and cron jobs to protect their data," said Arsalan Farooq, CEO of Convirture. "These fragile, manual approaches to data protection are no longer sufficient for shrinking backup windows and an increasing intolerance for downtime and data loss. "

The webinar will cover:

  • Scheduled, policy-based backups;
  • Fast, reliable recovery techniques;
  • Centralized monitoring and visibility for the backup and restore process.

Webinar: Backup and Restore for KVM and Xen

Date: Thursday, May 1, 2014

Time: 2 pm Eastern time / 11 am Pacific time
