As you may have noticed the banner advertisement on the right hand side of this page I have a new sponsor; AppAssure.  AppAssure provides data and application protection across your server stack including virtual, physical and cloud infrastructures.  By combining physical and virtual backups into one management console, coupling that with object level recovery as well as bare metal recovery AppAssure really does have a winning product that I would certainly recommend to check out.  They also have an interesting comparison to Symantecs' Backup Exec running on their site right now.  I wanted to take the time to personally thank AppAssure for their sponsorships as it is companies like these that help to support the community in order to maintain a wealth of great content flowing.

Currently AppAssure has scheduled a free webinar titled "12 Backup & Recovery Questions Every Windows Administrator Must Ask"  Below you can find a description and link to the event.  vExpert Greg Shields (twitter) is heading up the webinar so you know it's going to be a good one…Check it out!

It can be hard to keep up.
