PHX User Group Meetings - What do YOU want to hear more about?

Created: 28 Sep 2011 | 2 comments

Hello fellow Phoenix Backup & Archiving group members,

There are currently 4 Symantec Backup & Archiving User Group meetings each year in the Phoenix area, yet only a small group of members attend on a regular basis. We would like to improve attendance, as these meetings are full of great information, lessons, tutorials, best practices, and provide a great chance to network with your backup peers & Symantec product experts. To that end, we would like to ask a few simple questions to see if we can increase your interest level in these meetings, as well as provide a broader range of subjects to discuss.

1) What backup and / or archiving products are you currently using?
(eg: BackupExec / NetBackup / EnterpriseVault / NBU Appliances / BMR / DLO / NDMP / OpsCenter / etc)
Feel free to include non-Symantec products such as DataProtector / Commvault / Networker or Open-Source solutions if you are using them too.

2) Are you currently backing up Virtual Environments (VMWare / Hyper-V / Xen / etc)? Which?

3) Are you currently, or do you plan to use a de-duplication solution in the next 6 months? Which?

4) What backup / archiving related topics would you like to learn more about?cool

5) What backup / archiving related challenges are you currently experiencing? cryingangry

6) Are there any products you would like to see an in-depth presentation on at one of the meetings?enlightened

7) What can we do that would ensure you would attend the next meeting (Currently December 8th, 2PM - 5PM)? indecision
