- Helped relocate and resume service for hundreds of NYC businesses following 9-11

"The current emphasis on disk-based mirroring and replication as a core technique for data protection is actually exposing data protection strategies to epic failure. Disks are failing at 50 to 1500 times the frequency stated by manufacturers, new information on silent corruption (the corruption of bits at the time of recording) is leading to increased questioning of data protection techniques such as RAID, and interconnect failures (array components other than disk drives) are starting to rival disk failures as causes of catastrophic data loss. A witch's brew of issues with disk are under-reported by the industry but promise to make your next disaster a data disaster."

Questions are encouraged throughout the course of the seminar and attendees are invited to discuss their own data protection challenges. Where possible, conceptual information will be reinforced with practical, real-world use cases drawn from Toigo's extensive DR consulting experience. Emphasis will also be placed on describing the real world acquisition and operational costs of the techniques and topologies illustrated.
