Case Study: The Flight to DR in the Cloud

Event: DRI2018

Author: Bill Lavigne, Stephen Weber

Attend this session to learn how McKesson – a Fortune 5 company delivering medical supplies, drugs, and services to the healthcare industry – transitioned from legacy disaster recovery (DR) methodologies to provide a new way of delivering DR by leveraging new state of the art technologies available in the public cloud. The presentation will take you on a short flight to disaster recovery in the cloud, which resulted in significant reduction in costs, streamlined processes with minimal effort, and the ability to test anytime and ensure application recoverability. Topics include reasons why this journey was necessary, what technology options are available, and some of the turbulence encountered along the flight path to delivering DR in the cloud.

Technology Track Working Group: The Cloud Solution Experiment - Hero or Zero

Event: DRI2017

Author: Jack Orlove

The cloud can make you a hero and provide all the upside of a cloud managed solution such as automation, scalability, and reducing cost; or, it make you regret a cloud decision with numerous privacy, security, and ownership issues. In this session we will explore actual “war” stories and discuss concerns that were either solved by the cloud or exacerbated by transferring the risk to a third-party vendor. We’ll also discuss how to provide assurances that your critical products, services, and data will survive in the cloud. This workshop will target technical issues as well as the compliance issues of concern to the disaster recovery expert.

Yet the enterprise was definable with a boundary that delineated what was inside the enterprise, and wath was outside. Today, we now think "outside in" when it comes to IT. The boundaries for disaster recovery are now more porous than ever, and every business continuity planner needs to devise strategies for cloud and big data within the business continuity management framework.
