Topic:  Evolve Beyond Disaster Recovery to IT Resilience

IT resilience is achieved when a company is capable of responding to a disruption so quickly that end-users and customers are not aware that a disruption occurred. Organizations that embrace this concept, which is essentially a more proactive approach to BC/DR, focus on continuous availability rather than recovery after the fact. Automation and simplification of replication and recovery are part of resilience, and ensure that companies can prove the availability of their applications and data at any time. In this presentation learn how Zerto work towards a complete solution with no dependencies on hypervisors, hardware, or clouds in order to achieve IT Resilience.
