Protecting and Securing your Data in a Virtual World

Data center consolidation and optimization, the wide spread adoption of virtualization, and reduced budgets are driving tremendous changes in the federal IT landscape. In the face of all this change, one thing remains constant: the need to protect and restore your agency’s data—at a moment’s notice—whether it resides on a physical or virtual server. How are agencies addressing this challenge? What technologies and best practices are available? Does your agency have any best practices you would like to share on this topic?
