Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery Virtual Summit: Taking a Coronavirus Lens to Your Enterprise Transition
Date: May 19, 2020 at 9am PDT / 12 noon EDT
The greatest test of backup and disaster recovery policies and procedures of our lifetimes thus far isn't even really framed that way.

Yet the implications for backup and disaster recovery are enormous.
Attend this special virtual summit to see how this rapid and massive shift in the way IT is done is accelerating the industry transition to cloud-based approaches for backup, disaster recovery and business continuity in general. You'll come away with concrete ideas for filling newly opened gaps right now, as well as ways to start thinking about cloud's role in business continuity in the post-pandemic future.
