Data Protection at the Dome - February 2018


On February 21st, 2018 ComSource hosted its first “Data Protection at the Dome” event at the Syracuse University.  ComSource customers, partners and future clients gathered before the Syracuse/North Carolina basketball game for presentations from ComSource's CEO Kevin Hanlon, President Jim Carrick and Commvault's Joe Kohler.

Key topics of discussion included: Data Protection: Backup & Recovery, Optimizing Cloud Strategies, Data Virtualization & Infrastructure Management and Enterprise Applications.  The event was followed by a Syracuse Orange basketball game at the Carrier Dome versus ACC rival  North Carolina Tar Heels.  Although Syracuse lost by 4 points in the nail-biting game… ComSource, our partners and customers considered the evening a success nevertheless.
