Wednesday, July 18, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (REGISTER NOW!)
Did you know that business downtime can cost an Small to mid-sized business an average of $1,230 dollars per minute? So what happens when a disaster strikes a business? In this day and age it's only a matter of when...not if. Whether it's a hurricane or a server misconfiguration, companies need to have a disaster recovery solution in place in order to continue to operate, while their internal IT departments resolve the problem.
Quorum's CEO, Larry Lang, will focus his session on the importance of going beyond traditional backup methods to implement a disaster recovery and management plan that enables business continuity and prevents costly downtime.
While many traditional tape backup methods make disaster recovery a slow-motion proposition, hybrid cloud solutions -- a combination of high-speed-recovery appliances and cloud-based technology -- are paving the way for the future of backup, recovery and continuity.
This webinar will explore:
The business impact of system downtime
An overview of the top "disasters" small to mid-sized businesses must prepare for- from hurricanes to system updates
Real world examples of successful disaster recovery plans across various industries
Larry Lang will discuss this next phase in hybrid cloud technology, and the crucial role of instant recovery in small to mid-sized businesses, and how it is the next frontier for business continuity.
This webinar will provide attendees with an overview of current recovery systems, from tape backup, disks, data center replications to private and public cloud-based solutions. Lang will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each, as well as how various solutions have performed for real companies in real-life disaster scenarios.
The component of speed and simplicity will also be discussed, with a focus on how hybrid cloud solutions can benefit small to mid-sized businesses from a proactive recovery-testing scenario before a disaster strikes.

Successfully Herding Cats: Creating a Winning ROBO Data Backup and Restore Solution
Wednesday, July 25, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (REGISTER NOW!)
In this webinar, learn to identify the critical issues to select and implement a successful backup and restore solution for your remote and branch offices. As you know, allowing the freedom of each office to select its own backup technology often results in a quick win followed by inconsistent policies, inefficient management, and poor control of this essential function. As the corporate IT function looks to drive consistent policies for data retention, it needs to assess solution security, restore speed, and ease of management. Sometimes, getting all your remote and branch offices to follow consistent policies may feel like herding cats. Further, from a strategic standpoint, you need to address considerations such as retention policy for compliance reasons and a migration away from tape or to the cloud. Gain insight into the criteria and process for selecting and implementing a winning backup/restore solution that keeps your organization purring.
Relevant Communications: What Mass Notification is Missing
Wednesday, August 1, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (REGISTER NOW!)
Years ago you saw a need in your company for a tool that would allow you to communicate to people when emergencies happened. You innovated how your company operated in times of crisis. Instead of relying on call trees, you implemented a mass notification tool so you could blast messages out to the people who needed to know. But just as you innovated then - growing from call trees to mass notification - it's time for change again. There is new technology available to make the notifications you send out relevant to the people that receive them. Instead of sending a generic message to everyone and hoping that it's relevant to them, there is a new way to communicate. This need to provide the right information to the right people means that the communication vendor you select for emergency communications needs to do more than just "spray and pray".
