Event Details

There is an essential evolution in disaster recovery. It is called orchestration.

As the word suggests, orchestration is the ability to have all the pieces of your complex data systems work in coordinated fashion.

Orchestration, in disaster recovery, creates an intelligent workflow comprised of individual automated actions or patterns.   It is the ability of each piece to automatically and intelligently do the right thing at just the right time, by reducing human error, saving money and getting back up and running faster.

Today’s reality is that with much more complex business-driven recovery needs, IT executives must orchestrate recovery horizontally across all technologies and vertically across all IT layers.

Anything less than full orchestration is yesterday’s response and frankly, it’s not going to be good enough.
