This Month’s Speaker :
Speaker: John Morehouse
Title: Monthly Meeting Designing Azure Data Disaster Recovery Strategies
In an on-premises world many organizations did not have the option of multiple data centers or were limited in what that they could protect from disaster. Moving to the cloud evolves many technologies—disaster recovery being one of the most prominent ones. It can be quick and easy to protect your application in multiple regions worldwide. For any critical application disaster recovery should be at the forefront of your planning. The cloud does not change this. In the event of a regional outage, you still need to meet your recovery objectives. If you aren’t prepared for this failure, the downtime could be costly. In this session we will examine the ways to help protect your Azure Data footprint from outages. You will learn about strategies with Azure SQL Databases, virtual machines, and Managed Instances as well as how to protect your application tier. At the end of the session you’ll have a better understanding on how to ensure your data in the cloud is protected from failure.
