Q5: Why is multi-cloud #DataProtection important?
Alain Pelegrin
To reduce operational complexity. You don't want to go manage different tools to do data protection in different clouds
Arjan van Proosdij
A5: Organizations are on average using 3 different clouds and tend to use a different backup product in each cloud. Imagine the overhead and complexity you have to deal with.
Alain Pelegrin
Complexity may result in inefficiency and eventually data loss.
Arjan van Proosdij
A5: #CloudPoint offers you one dashboard for backup and recovery for your applications and data in #Azure, #AWS and #GoogleCloud
Dave High
A5: Many customers use multiple clouds for various business purposes. And they have onsite arrays. The ability to create snapshots of the various components makes things easy without the learning curve of ramping up on the snapshot options of each cloud/array vendor.
Justin J
A5: Multi-Cloud is the reality, having a single platform to support Azure, AWS, GCP and others, keeps all your data protection management in one place.

Q8: How quickly can I protect my SQL server in Azure with #CloudPoint?
Alain Pelegrin
It is a snapshot - it takes just a second!
Arjan van Proosdij
It is very fast. It will take just seconds. Here is another video clip on SQL backup and recovery in Azure with CloudPoint https://youtu.be/6fz...

Q3: Why do current solutions on the market fail to address these challenges appropriately?
Alain Pelegrin
You want to have a proper solution build for Cloud, from ground up. Most other solutions originate from classic backup approaches where CloudPoint is build from ground up with cloud in mind.
Arjan van Proosdij
Current (often legacy retrofits) may claim cloud support but are often missing support for cloud workloads and unproven.
Justin J
A3: Many solutions that address these cloud protection challenges carry a very heavy IaaS footprint and require similar administration, maintenance and specialization much like traditional backup approaches.
Arjan van Proosdij
Also, these retrofit solutions where never really built for the cloud so may turn out very complex to run, driving up your #TCO.

Q7: How does Classification work in #CloudPoint?
Arjan van Proosdij
#CloudPoint allows you to understand the data being protected (via the snapshots) by utilizing the Veritas Intelligent Classification Engine and then using this information to give visibility into what is protected and backed up, as well as help, define policies.
Arjan van Proosdij
Here is a demo video clip on CloudPoint and Classification https://youtu.be/7wU... #GDPR

Q4: What makes #CloudPoint different?
Arjan van Proosdij
A4: #CloudPoint is a cloud-native, micro-service based architecture that provides a cost-effective, highly performant solution for growing data sizes, and the most stringent business. It is built from the ground up for the cloud!
Alain Pelegrin
It's really a snapshot orchestrator. NOt a streaming backup. It can index and classify the snapshots. https://youtu.be/7wU...
Justin J
A4: CloudPoint was built in the cloud for the cloud with an API-first approach. Automation and DevOps are at the heart of 'cloud' and being able to easily incorporate CloudPoint into an automation workflow is key in this world.
Dave High
A4: The beauty of CloudPoint is being able to use a single UI, or API's, to manage snapshots in multiple clouds or even on-prem arrays. Keep it simple. And with 2.0, installation and configuration takes minutes with very little learning curve.

Q2: What are some of the challenges of traditional backup approaches in Microsoft @Azure (or #cloud in general)?
Arjan van Proosdij
I think one of the notable challenges in using a traditional backup approach in the cloud is the heavy and rigid architecture of such a retrofit/ deployment which makes it not only costly but also hard to manage with specialists and formal training.
Arjan van Proosdij
Our customers are looking to have “versatilists” manage all their infrastructure in the cloud at the lowest possible cost. #CloudPoint is offering data protection for the versatilist in #Azure!
Arjan van Proosdij
Another challenge is the often significant window that traditional methods need to backup all data. In the cloud, applications are "always-on," and any extended backup negatively impacts the application performance.
Justin J
A2: Traditional backup approaches are built around the traditional data center. These Server/Client and streaming backup approaches don't always fit in cloud-native architectures.
Dave High
A2: While a customer can continue to use traditional backup in the cloud, there are certainly better, lower cost options such as snapshots. Or, if needed, use both. That is the beauty of the Veritas solutions. Snapshot some data, stream/dedupe other data. The choice is yours.
