In this session you will learn: 1. How you should be preparing for a return while at the disaster site 2. What are the first three steps to take when your primary data center is ready 3. How you should de-stage your DR site when your primary is operational Join us live on Wednesday September 6th at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET
