We don't really want to keep pointing out the date... but, July is almost over and August will be here very soon. To be more specific, August 7 will be here soon and if you want to save $100 on your DRJ Fall World registration, you need to register before August 7.

For those of you who have already registered and those of you who do register before August 7, your names will be entered in a draw to win a Kindle Fire HD. That's right, not only do you save on your conference registration and first choice at the sessions, but you also get the chance to win a prize! 

Along withe registration discount for our 51st conference, we've also arranged for special savings on your hotel room at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and discounts on car rentals and airfare. 

There is a block of rooms set aside for DRJ Fall World attendees, so make sure you book soon to secure this low rate - once the block of rooms is booked, the special discount rate is gone. 

And now here is a look at some of the Solution Track sessions being offered on Sunday, September 7 from 4:00 - 5:00:

  • Solutions Track 2: Five Disaster Recovery Flaws Your Last DR Test Missed: How confident are you in your company’s ability to recover in an emergency? Are you convinced that your data center is resilient? Doron Pinhas, the chief technology officer at Continuity Software, will teach you about the top five critical recovery flaws that your latest DR test likely missed. Learn how these impact your business and how to make sure that you never make the same mistakes again.
  • Solutions Track 5: How Many Nines? Understanding RPO And RTO Metrics For BC/DR: It is important that you understand the true differences between a 99 per cent and 99.999 per cent recovery point objective (RPO). This difference can add up to a lot of downtime and lost data. Learn about the differences between recovery time objectives (RTOs) and RPOs, determine how to apply them to server workloads, and learn guidelines for selecting the right DR technologies for the right workloads. Mike Robinson is a senior product marketing manager at NetIQ Corporation.
  • Solutions Track 7: Millions Of Threats? Three Situations! Let’s Plan: What really is the best way to approach BC/DR planning? Is it time to look past the traditional thinking of best practices and consider the “actual” best practices instead? In this session with Skip Williams, BCI’s 2014 North American Business Continuity Consultant of the Year, you’ll learn about a controversial new option for easing your BC/DR planning - plan for three defined situations instead of endless “potential” threats.

We look forward to seeing you in San Diego from September 7 - 10!
