  • To accomplish our goal of making this a meaningful interaction, I have broken the presentation into 3 parts. Based on what you have said, you would like to hear how we will spend the majority of our time on # 1, 2 or 3. (Note: Use this slide to let them know that you listened to what they said. Know your information well enough that you can make adjustments to your standard presentation.)
  • As we go thru the presentation, there are some overarching points that I would like to make and that past customers have said are important to take into consideration when making a vendor decision on backup.**it is difficult to do any thing well. Without focus it is almost impossible. At PHD, we focus on just backup of virtual environments. We believe this focus is what has delivered the unique technology you will see today and why the technology is delivered on multiple hypervisors.Our customer feedback has been, “I have pain doing backups on my virtual desktops and servers but my physical environment is fine. Help me with my virtual problem without causing another one!” You will see as we go through this presentation that we have, and will continue to have, not just virtual products for virtual environments but also adapters to the vendors many of our customers use to backup their physical environments.” So, our strategy is to provide a best of breed backup solution for your virtual environment and co-exist with your vendor for your physical servers/desktops.**We will go into detail about our architecture but suffice it to say that it is unique to PHD Virtual and will enable features that many customers find important.**In a difficult business environment we have the financial resources to be able follow through on our commitments to our customers.
  • Transition: What are the typical current data protection choices?The problem is that the current backup methodologies for virtual environments have issues: - single points of failure - significant processing overhead on ESX server - restore usually multi-step process - scaling limited due to limited CPU and/or memory resources (Consider removing VBA from this slide.)
  • We have won a number of awards on our way to acquiring over 2000 customers in just a few short years. Our product roadmap and priorities are really driven by our close relationship with our customers. Recently we became Citrix ready as a result of our customers wanting a cross platform solution.
  • Many companies talk about how they are in tune with their customers but we have a method and process behind it. Customers can give input in a number of ways: 1) we have a user group with many sub groups focused on specific products. User group members get a number of benefits; 2) our CEO conducts roundtable discussions formally with customers each quarter and speaks with them often to ensure that our customers are happy with our sales, support, channel and our technology; 3) the product management group does monthly meetings and conducts weekly webinars on our technology. They are the group that gives development the product specifications driven by our customers and the market; 4) finally, there is an internal meeting each week so that when we roll out a product to a customer it is well documented, supported by our people and our partners and so it meets our customers needs.
  • Host Failover: In the event of a host failure, VMs that HA to a new host will be backed upSureRestore™Build Target Teams – Logical groups of storage for backup jobs ensure every backup succeeds even if one target is downFully VMotion aware – backups continue even as VMs move from host to hoseNo Proxy Hardware to fail
  • Technology ComponentsData integrity verification during and after backup processSelf-healing data blocks on diskPatent-pending data protection schemes.What good is a backup if you can’t restore the data!?Other vendors try to make sure your backups worked; PHD makes sure that your restore will be successful.We continually check backup data integrity and fix data corruption errors without user intervention so that backups restore as expected.
  • Transition: Let’s talk about one of the ways PHD makes it easy to do business…We listened to our customers and created a very simple license model. The only choices you needto consider are the number of concurrent backups that will run per host. We also only license by the host, so it doesn’t matter how many sockets are on the server. This provides great investmentprotection should a customer want to move the license to a more powerful server over time.Discount Pricing Available for Volume PurchasesMulti Year Commitment with Flexible Licensing Options
