It’s that time of year – when fiscal budgets are allocated and the age old question “Do we really need that item?” pops up. That item is very often Disaster Recovery.
We aren’t in a hurricane zone. There are no earthquakes here. Why would someone target our business? We test all our patches.
The reasons are endless. But, since you’re the one with the threat of downtime hanging over your heard – you’re motivated to get this finally budgeted. But, you’ll need a counter-arguments for every objection – so this is the webinar for you! We’ll cover the best responses to:
· It’s going to cost a fortune!
· We have another backup system down the hall!
· We don’t live in a weather-y place!
· When was the last time we had an outage?
· We can handle a little downtime… really.
Join this webinar with iland’s Dante Orsini, SVP of Business Development, and Lilac Schoenbeck, VP of Marketing, to learn how you can keep DR in you 2016 budget.
58% experienced issues when failing over IT systems! - The State of IT Disaster Recovery in the UK – 2016 Survey
Find out if you’re ahead or behind on IT Disaster Recovery. In a survey commissioned by iland and conducted by Opinion Matters, 250 IT decision makers in the UK were asked about their DR experiences, challenges and strategies. And, we’re sharing the results!
Learn from your peers:
- The frequency of DR testing – how much is enough?
- The impact of IT outages – how disruptive would it be to your business?
- The trade-offs IT leaders make between downtime, cost and security – what trade-offs make sense for you?
Join iland and Zerto as we dig into the survey findings which will be a useful benchmark for your own DR strategies. Don’t miss it.
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.
Your digital business ecosystem consists of customers, partners, suppliers, and employees. Each expects your services to be available 24x7x365. But running an always-on, always-available infrastructure can quickly become complex and expensive.
In this session, Forrester's VP and Research Director, Stephanie Balaouras, outlines three steps that technology professionals can take to support IT Resilience across the enterprise, including:
• How to calculate the cost of downtime
• How to effectively measure availability
• How to match business needs to the appropriate technologies
Jennifer Gill, Director, Global Product Marketing will outline how Zerto Virtual Replication takes disaster recovery to the next level with IT Resilience across virtual environments and clouds to support increasingly aggressive business needs.
In this month's Master of Disaster Webinar we'll be looking at how you can make the most of software-defined replication and recovery by utilising ZVR Rest APIs with PowerShell to automate your virtual infrastructure and remove manual processes.
We'll look at some key use cases including; Automating VM Protection, Bulk VRA Deployment and Bulk VPG Configuration, as well as exploring how you can obtain reporting statistics from your protected infrastructure.
Ready-made scripts created by Zerto's Technology Evangelist, Joshua Stenhouse, will be available at the end of the session for registrants to leverage in their own ZVR environment.
Join Midd Carmack, Product Manager and Mike Donaghey, Manager of Database Administration at TierPoint along with Matt Aslett, Research Director for Data Platforms and Analytics at 451 Research, as they discuss the latest high availability capabilities in SQL Server 2016, how to architect to take full advantage of those features, and implications for a robust disaster recovery plan.
Midd brings over 20 years of IT Infrastructure, Operating System and Database administration and product management experience to the discussion and will provide an overview of TierPoint as a Managed Services Provider and the company’s Hybrid IT strategy.
Matt will explore the latest high availability capabilities in SQL Server 2016, including database mirroring, log shipping, availability groups, and failover clustering. In addition to reviewing the capabilities of each of these approaches, this session will also include a perspective on their relative merits and use-cases. Matt will also explore the drivers for managed database services, versus hands-on database administration, in delivering the goals of a database high availability strategy.
Mike’s experience spans 15 years working with managed database clients to design and manage SQL implementations for a variety of industries, including healthcare, financial and manufacturing. Mike will offer technical perspective on implementing SQL capabilities to optimize disaster recovery protection and budget considerations. He will use case study examples describing the challenges and business requirements for a variety of SQL installs, along with strategies for solving those problems using the DR/HA features available with SQL Server today.
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.
