The need for DRaaS is often overlooked due to the common misunderstanding around what constitutes a disaster for an organization as well as a how to craft a DR plan that meets business and compliance objectives. Understanding business needs, RPOs and RTOs to point out DR flaws in an organization can save millions of dollars and resources allowing companies to focus on strategic growth.

How do I craft a best-in-class DR plan utilizing a cloud provider? It is imperative to understand the real cost of organizational disasters, and how to orchestrate a DR plan that ensures business continuity.

Approach to the Problem

  • What kinds of disasters interrupt business continuity?
  • Do I have a DR plan that achieves defined RTO and RPO objectives?
  • How to craft and implement a winning DR Solution making use of cloud

A properly implemented DR plan reduces risk, enabling business continuity. By utilizing DRaaS, testing and validation services, businesses can be confident that in the event of a disaster they will experience a planned, manageable failover process.

We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
