Manage and recover with Hybrid Cloud - When Minutes Matter Most

Wednesday, July 18, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (REGISTER NOW!)

Webinar Sponsored By Quorum!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.
