Not Your Grandpa’s DR: Delivering Modern Data Availability for IBM Systems
As hybrid IT environments become the new normal, IT leaders must change their approach to designing and delivering enterprise-wide DRaaS solutions. Disaster recovery solutions must now align with the transformation of production environments to interconnect services, various cloud providers, and IoT, all while securing business-critical data from increasing cyberthreats. For IBM POWER and complex mainframe computing and cloud environments, traditional disaster recovery strategies may not be enough to support today’s business recovery objectives. DR testing the most critical applications once or twice per year is potentially insufficient and has created challenges for IT organizations to demonstrate their ability to meet RTOs and RPOs and have the confidence to invoke their DR plan should an outage occur. Join us for a discussion focused on how a change in thinking about DRaaS solutions can yield unprecedented business resumption capabilities including how to: • Overcome challenges associated with hot sites and bare metal restores • Benefit from an automated, always-on recovery system • Avoid hassles and problems when testing your recovery systems • Make hybrid a reality with industry-leading partners in IBM and x86 recovery The session will be led by Orry Dubois, Chief Technology Officer at ZPX Cloud. Orry is a 30-year veteran in the disaster recovery (DR) industry and has held various management and leadership roles with multiple DR service providers including Sungard and IBM. PJ Farmer, Director of Product Management at TierPoint, will help review some case studies to understand how this new way of thinking solved our shared clients’ business problems and drove real results.
