Weekly Online Radio Show Broadcasts Interview with VP Marketing Ed Harnish This Saturday

June 8, 2007, Paris, France - Acronis EMEA (www.acronis.com/en-gb/), leading developer of storage management software, announced today that an interview with Ed Harnish, vice president of marketing, will appear this weekend on Let's Talk Computers, a weekly online radio program devoted to all things computer-related.

Interviewed at Microsoft's Tech.Ed conference this week, Harnish speaks to host Alan Ashendorf on the topic of virtualization - what it is, why it's important and what to keep in mind when implementing virtualization in the datacenter. One of those considerations is backup and recovery, both physical and virtual.

"Companies using virtualization to consolidate their datacenters, increase ease of management and reduce their carbon footprint, will often have a combination of physical and virtual servers," said Harnish. "Because of this, administrators must consider ways to keep their data on both safe and able to be easily and quickly recovered."

The interview is available online and the transcript is available here. The show is also broadcast on local radio stations in Texas, New Mexico, Indiana, Tennessee and Kentucky, www.lets-talk-computers.com/radio/.
