22AC SPONSORED: Off-Site Backup and Disaster Recovery for IBM i
This session will focus on how to optimize your backup and disaster recovery processes for your enterprise and the lessons learned from Hurricane Irma. Derrick will provide an overview of two customers who declared disasters during the hurricane and walk you through how they approached protecting their business-critical data, applications and operations against downtime.

We will share how we have implemented different vaulting and replication technologies for many of our customers who have struggled with the rising costs and complexities of data storage, backup and disaster recovery processes. We offer best-in-class backup and recovery services for the IBM Power System platform, and also Windows. Our solutions can be designed to be cloud-based, on-premise, or a hybrid of both configurations.


All attendees will learn on how to achieve the following goals:
• Virtually eliminate the need to purchase tapes and pay for off-site storage
• Realize labor savings by reducing the amount of time spent managing the
backup process
• Reduce duplication of data and implement flexible data retention policies
• Improve Disaster Recovery Protection with faster recovery times
• Implement a cost-effective DR plan that is convenient to test
• Benefit from a hosted data replication and high availability arrangement on a pay-as-you-go contract basis
