Executive Vice President’s Letter
Welcome to our Fall 2013 edition of the Gravic Shadowbase Products Group Newsletter. We moved our offices to larger new state-of-the-art headquarters in Malvern, Pennsylvania, west of Philadelphia. We are very busy on the sales front, with a number of recent key customer wins and are working on several promising trials/POC.
Shadowbase Product Management
We take a thorough and objective look at your business continuity plans, asking if they are adequate and will they work, or do you just hope they will? Consider moving to one of the other higher level availability architectures, since your current plan may be providing you with a false sense of security, and will not work properly when called upon.
Shadowbase Marketing Highlights
Gravic was honored to win the Gold Stevie Award in the category for New Product or Service of the Year – Software – International Data Protection Solution at the 11th Annual American Business Awards. We attended and presented at many recent events, including: the INNIG Meeting in the Netherlands, the CTUG Fall Conference, the EBUG User’s Forum, HP Discover, and several other regional meetings.
