Via this community, you’ll be able to learn about new developments in the Enterprise Storage Space from one single source, made up of many opinions and experts. The community is designed as a “coming together" of the world’s leading storage industry analysts and consultants, along with IBM customers and company leaders. Simply point and click to the community to learn how leading companies are transforming their data infrastructure to drive incredible efficiencies, breakthrough innovation and improved IT economics by effectively deploying data reduction, virtualization, data protection, and application integration strategies to drive business value.

We've heard from customers over the years, that some of the best events that we do at IBM are the ones that feature our customers sharing their real-life challenges and solutions. That's why you'll want to register for our upcoming IT Storage Webcast featuring Greg Johnson, CTO, Director of IT Technology & Engineering Services of VCUHS.
On May 24th, IBM and Information Week will be presenting the online event The Data Protection and Retention Mandate: Keep it Close, Keep it Safe and Secure, Keep Costs Low, 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET. The topic for the show is how to protect your data, and keep it safe and secure. With data protection and retention requirements growing 40 to 50 percent annually, organizations are struggling to ensure their data meets government, compliance, and security requirements, not to mention risk management responsibilities. The challenge of keeping and protecting all this data, while ensuring access when needed, means that traditional approaches may fall short or simply cost too much. Join Information Week magazine and IBM for this special webcast on May 24th. Click here to register.
If you are struggling with your storage infrastructure, or anxious to learn best practices, you'll want to register for this webcast and participate in the live Question and Answer session that will follow the speakers' presentations. Save the date!
