There is considerable pressure for large and distributed organizations to improve Business Continuity programs.

Just How Long is "Down"? Why Your Company should Consider a Guaranteed Service Level Agreement for Disaster Recovery

Wednesday, May 23, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (REGISTER NOW!)

Disaster recovery is about anticipating the worst: how, and how quickly, can your company get back to work should a natural or man-made disaster strike. It starts with an honest risk assessment that focuses on the likelihood of a disaster, the industry DR regulations your company faces and the length of downtime you can tolerate. From that assessment, the action plan emerges.

Join EVault experts Aaron Wiley and Matthew Seeley, as they present ways your company can address these issues and describes a real-world example. The Situs Companies (Situs) created a systematic plan for keeping critical operations up and running in the event of a disaster, which included setting the maximum downtime with a Service Level Agreement (SLA).
