Seminar Overview

Disaster Recovery has Changed, Are You Ready?

Disaster recovery has fundamentally changed. There are new types of disasters to deal with, including cyber-attacks, and there are new levels of recovery expectations on the part of users and application owners. Join Storage Switzerland founder and lead analyst, George Crump for an interactive workshop, "No More Excuses - Building a Modern Disaster Recovery Plan That Works" presented by Storage Decisions.

Creating, implementing and executing a disaster recovery (DR) plan is no longer costly and complex. Times have changed, and numerous new solutions exist to take your DR project plan off the whiteboard and into existence. Plus, a modern DR plan doesn't need to sit idle until an actual disaster; it can support other processes in the data center, making it more valuable and cost effective.

Modernizing DR is a business imperative.

IT professionals, such as yourself, must contend with traditional DR concerns over a server, storage system or data center outage, but you now need to plan for recovery from new challenges like a cyber-attack or cloud failure. Regardless of the type of disaster customers, users and executives have zero patience for an extended outage. They no longer expect to wait for days or weeks for completion of the recovery process. Instead, they want full access to mission critical applications within hours.

The good news is that there is a new set of tools and applications available to help IT professionals to meet these new DR challenges head-on, including improved backup and replication solutions as well as the cloud. The problem is deciding which of these tools to use and how to implement them. Attend this workshop and join George Crump, Founder and Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland, for Storage Decision's new workshop where you will learn about real world tactics and the best tools for solving today's DR challenges –and return to the office with a DR outline for your major applications to implement immediately.
