    Summary

    25

  • SYMANTEC VISION 2014

    Summary

    • The term “cloud” covers a lot of territory

    • Newer, complicated technologies difficult for many to implement

    • Cloud technologies don’t change the solution as much as they change the location & administrative tasks

    • Cloud technology’s designed to provide simple, easy solutions

    • Cloud location has specific security & performance implications

    • The Backup Admin’s job can change dramatically

    • At all times, keep with you a “cheat sheet” that lists the meanings of all the new acronyms

    26

  • Thank you!
