Keeping Disaster Recovery a Priority During Tough Economic Times

Meeting Description:
Weather events, hardware failure, software corruption, and cyber-attacks. These are just some of the disasters that organizations must account for when it comes to a business continuity plan. The good news is disaster recovery spending is expected to grow by 12% over the next 5 years. However, during challenging financial times disaster recovery has been traditionally one of the first areas looked at for cost reduction. 
Join Dell, VMWare and Ricoh for this important live webinar “Keeping Disaster Recovery a Priority During Tough Economic Times” as we discuss:
How the current economic situation correlates to the criticality of business continuity;
Disaster recovery’s role in business continuity;
The importance of defining mission critical vs business critical workloads and their impact on recovery-based SLAs;
Ways to optimize disaster recovery spending without overexposing your business to risk.
As part of the webinar you’ll also have the opportunity to benchmark your current disaster recovery practices with other organizations in attendance, helping you identify specific areas of focus for improvement in your business continuity planning.
