Disaster Recovery Strategies for Compaq Tru64 UNIX
Topic Area:
Track: UNIX
Topic: Disaster Recovery
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/10/99   11:30 AM     Duration: 60 Min.     Room: 5B

Presenter:
Benjamin Rosenberg

Abstract:
With Year 2000 issues and more companies moving to a 24-hour/7 day-a-week business cycle, the ability to withstand production site outages is becoming increasingly important. In today’s environment the loss of access to a company’s database for even a single day can have a substantial and detrimental effect on the bottom line. Extend that loss for several days and many companies are out of business! The ability to load last night’s backup and lose whatever transactions occurred between the backup and the outage is, for most companies, unacceptable. Quite a few businesses, however, view Disaster Recovery (DR) planning as nothing more than expensive insurance. This session provides an introduction to Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity hardware and software available for Compaq’s Tru64 UNIX and OpenVMS systems and, in particular, how this technology is applied to a Company’s Data Center databases and other critical files. The session begins with a definition of terms and examines the reasons why a company would deploy Business Continuity or Disaster Recovery strategies. By the end of the session, session participants will be able to decide the most appropriate recovery strategies for their business critical applications and view DR as the “seat belt that saves your company (and you)”.
