Craft of Code Webinar: Data Protection in the Cloud: The Move to Holistic Backup and Retention (October 14th at 2PM ET)

As the commoditization of configuration management and application installation continues at an unprecedented pace, data is quickly becoming the only irreplaceable part of technology systems. Data protection, in turn, is becoming an increasing priority for business of all sizes.

In this webinar, you’ll be introduced to a third approach to enterprise-grade data backup and retention: holistic, system-based data protection. You’ll also learn:

  • The latest overview of the data backup and recovery market.
  • How this new data protection scheme solves the problems inherent in block-based and file-based techniques.
  • How to prevent your data from being at risk from outside actors, logical process failure, and external failures.


  • Enrico Signoretti, Research Analyst, Gigaom
  • James Hunt, Director of Research and Development, Stark & Wayne
  • Hillary Wilmoth, Director of Product Marketing, Linode
