9:00am – 10:00am: Value of Investment – Balancing Data Corruption, Disaster Recovery, and Cost

 

For decades, enterprises have worked to get their Recovery Point from days, to hours, to seconds. Today, ransomware and data corruption are challenging and forcing enterprises to develop new but often counter-intuitive approaches to business continuity. In this session, attendees will learn best practices for balancing data corruption, disaster recovery, and cost.

 


10:00am – 10:30am: Refreshment Break


10:30am – 11:30am: Reducing the Cost of DR and Lowering Your Risk Profile

 

Learn modern strategies on how enterprises can make IT investments available for data replication. We will present frameworks on Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) from days to hours, and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) from hours to minutes. Additionally, this session will provide some ideas on how to better build your infrastructure while improving your Disaster Recovery posture.

 


11:30am – 12:30pm: Cloud Architecture: DR in the Cloud, DC Failover in Near Real Time

 

Content that will be covered:

12:30pm – 1:30pm: Luncheon and Exhibit Break


1:30pm – 2:30pm: Increasing Your Data Protection Posture: A Pragmatic Approach to Data Center Modernization

 

Data Center modernization is a journey that begins with a clear vision and strong leadership. Technology leaders of today are challenged with identifying and executing a strategy that reduces complexity and costs, while increasing InfoSec and Data Protection postures. Learn how to leverage a Service Portfolio in support of this vision and create a winning framework for success.

 


2:30pm – 3:00pm Refreshment Break


3:00pm – 4:00pm: Cloud Migration Could Be Your Dress Rehearsal for IT Disaster Recovery

 

Day-to-day threats can destroy data and ruin a business. That’s why it is critical for all businesses to have a current, active disaster recovery (DR) plan. If you’ve completed a cloud migration project, perhaps it was your dress rehearsal and your chance to see how well prepared you really are.

 

In this session, attendees will learn to adapt their BC/DR plans to support Cloud Migration.

 

Areas that will be covered include:

  • Server operations failover and failback
  • Production application-specific operations failover and failback
  • Production database operations failover and failback
  • Production workload failover and failback
  • Workload onboarding into public cloud
  • Software and data dependency discovery and mapping
  • Critical path analysis of recovery and continuity workflows
  • Production data consistency and integrity assurance
  • WAN throughput and latency optimization

 


4:00pm – 5:00pm: Business & IT: Planning with the End in Mind – How to Bake BC/DR Into Everything You Do (Panel Discussion)

 

In this session attendees will learn how to better set expectations with the business by getting ahead of the curve with a BC/DR first mentality towards every initiative.

 

Areas that will be covered:

  • How to start with a BC/DR first mentality
  • How to review the plan with the business
  • Adjusting for new business application priorities
  • How the teams should respond together in the wake of a disaster
