008 – Disaster Recovery (aka coming back from the brink)

Death, taxes and an IT disaster. With some things it’s not a matter of ‘if’, but ‘when’. The important thing is that you’re prepared, which is what your disaster recovery planning is all about. With options ranging from a simple manual backup to automatic high-availability and multi-site redundant failover, disaster recovery needs to be thought about and put in place BEFORE disaster strikes. Join us as we talk through what DR means for your business, and some simple ways to get started.
