Backup Central Live! is a series of seminars coming to at least 20 US cities in 2011.  Each seminar will feature independent content from W. Curtis Preston, as well as presentations from sponsoring vendors.  These seminars will be free to qualified end-users.

Topics covered will include the challenges of backing up and recovering:

   * Virtualized servers (e.g. VMware, Hyper-V, Xen)
   * Very large servers and data centers
   * Remote offices and laptops
   * Data retained for multiple years

We will also cover how to solve these challenges using products and services available today, including:

   * Deduplication
   * Continuous data protection (CDP)
   * Near-CDP
   * Archive software
   * Tape and its proper role
