We could go from the sublime to the ridiculous and
give a pair of talks.  (Each listener could choose
which was sublime and which ridiculous.)

I could describe the technical aspects of EMC hardware
and software.  That includes high end storage systems
capable of:

- accomodating and routing around communication
  failures in a storage network

- transparently maintaining multiple copies of live
  data, both local and remote

- transparently making point in time copies of live
  data, again either locally or remotely

I could also provide some info about the complications
that can occur when you try to copy data that includes
live databases - there are a number of ways that you
can end up with errors or problems unless you take
special care.
