Although most organizations have been performing elements of IT disaster recovery for years to decades, it’s still common for organizations to struggle to ensure alignment between IT capabilities and business application recovery needs. Even if IT exercises run flawlessly and meet planned recovery capabilities, there often remains gaps between the business requests and IT committed capabilities. This can inhibit organizations from having effective (yet reasonable) strategies in place that meet all stakeholder expectations.
This presentation will explore potential methods organizations can execute to help all groups in the disaster recovery process understand each other’s intent, priorities, dependencies, needs, and considerations, as well as the impacts of system downtime. These methods seek to truly synchronize business continuity and IT disaster recovery by enabling ongoing discussion, understanding and insight, continued coordination, and communication. Taking such measures will ensure an effective IT disaster recovery program that meets the expectations of all stakeholders.
Join iland and Zerto to discuss business continuity planning and:
- How you can be confident in your DR plan – and avoid downtime
- What factors should impact selection of a DR-as-a-Service partner
- How you can secure your systems during the disaster
- And how your team can be prepared for IT bumps
"Disaster Recovery" conjures images of superstorms, earthquakes and “Acts of God." But, dozens of mundane things can make IT go bump in the day or night. In a recent Zerto survey, 76% of customers had an outage in the past year and only 13% of those were natural disasters. The rest were power failures, hardware failures, and user errors and other nefarious scenarios. Gartner’s recent 2015 Business Continuity Management survey echoed these figures.
We’re all horrified when news of a hack, a bug, or an IT ransom makes the headlines. But, preparation can help prevent outages – and iland and Zerto lead the pack in DR-as-a-Service.
Fires. Storms. Floods. Attacks. When you think of disasters, you may think of the headlines in the news and the pictures of communities recovering from misfortune. But think for a moment of how much your school depends on its technology and how much smoother the return to normalcy could be after a disaster if you had the peace of mind that your school's data was protected, backed-up and recoverable. That's one less worry.

Many organizations have complex BC/DR plans consisting of several products, requiring multiple people to be present to execute the recovery, should disaster strike. This was the case at Long Term Care Group. They were using an orchestration tool with storage-based replication. Executing a DR test was becoming more and more difficult and confidence in their plan was fading.
Zerto Virtual Replication provides continuous block-level replication and fully automated and orchestrated failover, recovery, failback and DR testing. Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer at Long Term Care Group knew they had found the solution they needed to deliver robust BC/DR while greatly reducing risk.
- Reduce risk with an automated solution that anyone can execute
- DR Testing ensures recovery through reports and provides the opportunity to make adjustments in the plan
- Maximize the investment with a solution that can simplify migrations and maintenance of the environment
- Installation is complete in one hour with no configuration changes so the carefully architected production environment is not changed, further reducing risk
Demand on IT disaster recovery functions to be more cost effective and efficient is increasingly pushing companies towards cloud-based solutions. This strategy can offer flexibility, convenience and simplicity, however Disaster Recovery in a virtual world can give rise to a new set of potential problems.
Join Chris Snell from Zerto, as he discusses the benefits of a cloud based disaster recovery strategy and how to avoid some of these issues. He will also explore the benefits of using a technology that is hardware-agnostic, storage-agnositc and hypervisor-agnostic.
You'll also learn:
- The importance of continuous data protection to minimise the impact on the production environment
- How to use advanced KPIs and reporting more effectively
- How you can operate effectively within VMWare, AWS or Hyper-V
For many firms, particularly smaller and medium-sized ones, disaster recovery (DR) systems are seen as necessary but expensive and they are low on the list of priorities. This was certainly true in previous years, when backup/DR involved copying data regularly to a duplicate set of hardware, often in a second datacenter. However, with the growth of cloud and prevalence of colocation, there are ever more options for backup and DR, including DR-as-a-Service options that can be much more cost-effective.
However, IT decision makers have been primed to proceed with caution when it comes to the transition of services from inside their four walls to a cloud provider’s data center – and for good reason. The dizzying array of services offered today, and the perceived loss of control, weigh heavy on the minds of admins and leadership alike.
If disaster recovery is important to you, but you’re unsure how to navigate the litany of products and services available today, get started by understanding the basics, and learn about what your peers are doing to solve the real world problems of DR.
In this webinar we’ll take a look at 3 key considerations when doing DR planning:
1.How have cloud services changed the possibilities for RTO / RPO objectives?
2.Why are latency and carrier options important to DR planning?
3.Why (and how) are other organizations leveraging colocation as part of their overall DR strategy?
Have you been looking for cost efficient, highly reliable, infinitely testable DR for years?
Find out how organizations can now enjoy both low RTO/RPO performance AND low cost due to natively designed cloud solutions and architectures for DRaaS. The costs and complexities of DR for virtualized environments are greatly reduced, when combined with high data durability and global scale of AWS for public cloud.
Join Brett Schechter from Druva to hear the benefits of a native cloud disaster recovery strategy and the related best practices. Brett will also focus on the attributes that make VMware and AWS the right choice, for a wide range of use cases.
You'll also learn:
* The importance of having both a backup and a DR strategy
* How security is no longer a concern due to two factor encryption
* How you can combine best of breed cloud and virtualization to save money and man hours
