Tim Jones from TOLIS to speak at SCALE

The SCALE speaker committee has been very busy this week. Heres yet another announcement for a SCALE speaker:

Tim Jones from TOLIS Group, Inc.
Tim and the Tolis Group joined us at SCALE 1x (2002)
His 2002 talk can be seen on the SCALE website courtesy of LPBN

Tim’s talk this year will be titled: 10 pounds of backup in a 5 pound window – Improving Backup Planning for
Growing Environments

With Backup windows becoming smaller – because of either the amount of
data being backed up or extended work hours being seen in many
establishments – backup methods and procedures for reducing the
requirement are becoming more important than ever before. Also, with
the myriad new regulations concerning archival of data, extended and
offsite storage planning becomes more important.

We will discuss many old and new procedures that can be used in most
administration environments to alleviate or reduce the backup load.
The discussion will include:

Full vs. Incremental vs. Differential Backups
Using Multiple Servers/Tape drives
Using Libraries with Multiple Drives
Using Disk to Disk and Disk to Disk to Tape
Using new Virtual Tape Libraries
Remote Storage – Near Line or Off Line.

The presentation will be aimed at no specific backup technology
(software) and will enable attendees to take home some new ideas about
lessening their backup loads.

Tim Jones is president and CTO of TOLIS Group, Inc.
