Who Stole My Recovery?

Sponsored by WTSJoin us Wed, Oct 5, 2011 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Disasters happen just like change happens. Are you anticipating change in your recovery plan? Can your plan adapt quickly to an unknown disaster?

When analyzing your current solution, you may find your organization has no documented DR plan or process, no recovery facility, equipment constraints, or human resource limitations. WTS offers a managed disaster recovery service that prepares you for a possible disaster and protects your organization from unacceptable change. Join us to learn more about a managed disaster recovery service that will reduce risk and exposure, meet your corporate disaster recovery objectives, provide recovery time (RTO) and recovery point (RPO) assurance, and demonstrate a successful, documented test in a geographic diverse recovery center.
