Virtualization has changed the way organizations approach disaster recovery, as it has introduced technologies that allow for a more efficient and simple restoration of data and services after a disaster. Still, DR is an ongoing process, and an effective strategy requires in-depth understanding of the tools and policies used in the disaster recovery plan. And it’s not just admins who need to be in-the-know. All IT staff members and key business personnel must be trained in DR event management.
In this interactive classroom, we cover key knowledge about implementing a disaster recovery strategy, taking advantage of DR tools and setting processes and policies.
