Have you ever woken up in a cold sweat, still breathless with panic, fleeing the nightmare in which your organization suffers a terrible disaster and you can't recover any of the data or applications? If so, you definitely need to attend this week's video symposium, Making the Cloud Part of Your Business Continuity Team, this Thursday, September 27 at 12:00 p.m. ET.
Even if you haven't suffered those night terrors, it's still important to take a good hard look at your disaster recovery and business continuity plans. Lots of organizations have plans, but never bother to test them. How good would you do on a DR test, and more importantly, in a real disaster? How fast can you recover data, applications, and services? Is it fast enough? Do you have the manpower and expertise to keep secure, real-time backups of all data on all devices -- including that data that's stashed on employees' smartphones and tablets?
Perhaps you're doing better than most organizations, and you've got a DR plan that's rock solid, cheetah-fast, and ready for anything. But, is it cost effective? Are you using your storage resources efficiently or are you just scrambling to make room for countless duplicates, spending resources with wild abandon?
Chances are, your data recovery and business continuity system needs some kind of assistance. So join us Thursday for this live video event and explore how the cloud could make data protection and business continuity better, easier, and more cost effective.
Our guest will be Greg Schulz, founder and senior advisor at the independent IT advisory and consultancy firm Server and StorageIO (StorageIO). Greg brings real-world perspectives from his days as an IT professional in the transportation, energy, and financial sectors. He's also author of the Intel recommended reading for developer books Cloud and Virtual Data Storage Networking and The Green and Virtual Data Center, plus the SNIA education endorsed book Resilient Storage Networks.
Join us this Thursday, September 27 at 12:00 p.m. ET and be ready to ask your pressing questions (and maybe share your worst nightmares).
