Disaster Recovery Is Not Just About Technology
Presenter: Edwin Sarmiento
Failover clustering, database mirroring, backup strategies, etc... These are just some of the terms that you hear when tasked to work on a disaster recovery project. However, you’re missing a lot on the non-technology aspects. This session will describe the principles that should drive disaster recovery strategies and how they need to become the foundation of the technology solutions that you need to implement. You will certainly look at your disaster recovery strategies differently after learning these concepts.
