About this webinar:

Enterprises always need a plan B for dealing with mundane disasters. When someone hits ‘delete’ when they really shouldn’t have, when the AC in the data center goes down and takes the racks with it, when workmen drill through ‘that’ cable and the lights go out - even a simple trip accompanied by a tragically placed coffee cup.

In recent years, enterprises have started to realize huge cost savings from closing down replication sites and all the costs they involves in favor of cloud-based DRaaS – either with public cloud providers or other cloud service providers.

What’s their experience like? When disaster strikes, what happens? Do enterprises recover easily and swiftly with their frequent tests and drills resulting in a flawless recovery the business didn’t notice? Or, do they find themselves mired in a series of problems where systems stay stubbornly down, configuration problems that slow everything down, support is ‘computer says no’ – and a world of unexpected pain from unforeseen costs and issues?

Join on us on June 1st and we’ll reveal our exclusive research results and our expert panel will discuss how to make sure your plan B is fit for purpose.
