Insight Integrated VP Chris Aliberti to Speak on Cloud Computing at ITEC Los Angeles 2008
Insight Integrated Systems (IIS), a division of Insight Investments Corp. and an industry leader in managing how information is shared, stored and protected, has announced that Chris Aliberti, IIS vice president of sales, will be speaking on cloud computing at the ITEC Conference on September 24, 2008 at 10:15 AM in the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The session will discuss the growing need for offsite data back-up and recovery that's quick and easy and does not require companies to have the technology and facilities to perform such operations. Attendees will learn how easy it is to get an exact copy of a company's data, typically for recoverability, high availability, or nonstop maintenance and testing purposes.

According to Aliberti, system failures, power outages, and natural disasters all put business-critical data at risk of being permanently lost or inaccessible for extended periods of time. To make matters worse, limited technical resources, shrinking back-up windows to maximize online availability, and growing technological complexity, all contribute to the increased difficulty and importance of data protection.

Businesses today need a highly available recovery plan for back-up and recovery to eliminate the risk of data lost, Aliberti asserted. Replication solutions provide a wide range of capabilities beyond conventional disks and VTLs. They shorten backup times without affecting backup windows or performance, while providing more efficient storage and reducing the operational backup window to virtually zero (for continuous data protection). Our customers now have an opportunity to reduce costs significantly with a low monthly service fee versus the alternative of acquiring the necessary technology to build out their own backup and disaster infrastructure.

Aliberti has been in the technology business for 23 years having started in networking for the first 13 years and then moving into the data storage and protection field. His career began in technical architecture and design with Telco and Cisco, moved into sales at Cisco and then storage and data protection sales for EMC, then NetApp. After several years in sales, Aliberti moved into a channel sales role followed by a distribution manger role, sales manager and presently the vice president of sales for Insight Integrated Systems.
