Key Considerations for Disaster Recovery
Finding the Right DR Solution for Your Enterprise
Recorded webinar with PSGi President Larry Dube and
Your IBM i platform is essential to the growth and continuity of your business, and even a short-term hiccup can lead to a long-term business disruption. Will you be ready when disaster strikes? To operate efficiently – and with peace of mind – you need a backup and recovery strategy with the speed, precision and flexibility appropriate to your business requirements. However, many organizations overestimate their downtime tolerance, underestimate their recovery costs and fail to account for small but impactful details.
Fortunately, you can provide for pain-free disaster recovery with a thorough needs analysis, the right hardware and software and rigorous testing of your backup plan. Hosts Larry Dube and John Hamel discuss:
- Strategies for assessing your downtime tolerance
- Balancing business risks with your DR strategy
- Standardizing manual processes during downtimes
- Testing your backup plan: technology, processes and people
Finally, Larry and John discuss specific solutions and their use cases. Should you implement and maintain your own backup plan, or should you outsource DR to a third party? Should you back up to tape or a cloud server, or should you mirror your entire system? Which options will provide your organization with the appropriate balance between system and business requirements and peace of mind? Download the webinar to find out!
