    Ryan Coverdale, Innovation Leader, Cisco
    As we all focus on how to make sure our client phone calls get answered and orders get processed during times of drastic interruption, we wonder, "How can we make our business more resilient to interruption?"

  • Building Your Disaster Recovery Strategy with Azure Recorded: Mar 26 2020 59 mins
    Mandip Kalsi, Senior Azure Cloud Architect
    It's crucial that public cloud users understand some basic concepts about Business Continuity (BC) / Disaster Recovery (DR) options and how these architectural decisions need to be made in the cloud. The more you are aware of these fundamentals, the better you become at deploying the correct architecture based on the BC / DR requirements. Some of these essentials are:

    Just because you are in the cloud does not automatically mean you are without outage potential. You need to plan for those potential outages or failures.

    The importance of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plan, and the definition of RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective).

    The importance of High Availability, Disaster Recovery, and Backups and how they tie to a Business Continuity Strategy.

    In this webinar, you'll learn:
    - The basics behind BC/DR and RTO/RPO options in cloud
    - The definition and impact of RTO and RPO in a BC/DR plan
