Business Continuity Planning & Tiered Storage
This session explains how to leverage Business Continuity Planning to categorize data to take advantage of tiered storage. It also describes how storage tiers can become part of a Business Continuity strategy. From data availability and near instantaneous restore capabilities, to isolation of non-vital records, the session covers how proper planning based on business requirements can help lead to correct tiered storage decisions without jeopardizing the recoverability of business-critical data. Pierre Dorion, Business Continuity Consultant at Mainland Information Systems Ltd, describes how some of the basic Business Continuity concepts, such as Business Impact Analysis, Risk Assessment and the development of recovery strategies, can provide the starting point to establishing a solid data management process from a business perspective. This session is designed for Storage Managers, IT Managers, Disaster Recovery or Business Continuity Coordinators, IT Architects and anyone responsible for making storage decisions.
Useful prerequisites to get the most out of this session include a basic understanding of data storage and tiered storage concepts, and business continuity or disaster recovery concepts.
