PLUG Advanced Topics: What Went Wrong with My Disaster Recovery Plan
Roots Organic Brewing [Out of business. *Sigh*]

Brian Martin will be test-driving his IEEE presentation on his experiences in a true, "abandon the building" disaster recovery effort. He'll place particular emphasis on where technically sound, well-tested disaster plans often fail in a real disaster, and how these problems can be overcome.

The best data center disaster recovery plans are developed carefully and tested regularly. If you're at that stage, you may think you are well prepared. In this entertaining presentation, Brian Martin describes the unexpected problems that arose when a well thought out and tested plan met a real disaster, and draws lessons that are applicable to any disaster recovery situation.

Brian Martin has spent 30 years in the IT field, fairly evenly divided between being a mainframe system programmer and a server system administrator. He has operated Martin Consulting Services in the Portland Oregon area since moving to Portland from the San Francisco Bay Area in 1996. He has a wife, two cats, a dog, and nine in-service computers at home.

The Path to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BC/DR)
Living Room Theaters

The true test of an IT organization is its ability to sustain operations through any business disruption — whether from a major disaster or leaky plumbing — or to recover operations quickly and effectively.

Join EasyStreet, Arista, Coherence Advisors, CommVault, IVOXY and V1 Data for an informative and insightful seminar that examines BC/DR from many perspectives. Topics include:

  • 6 basic steps on the path to effective BC/DR planning
  • The anatomy of a disaster and the underlying root causes
  • The importance of effective IT governance in BC/DR planning
  • Focusing on IT services (not just on IT technology)
  • Assessing organizational capability and maturity
  • Effective risk mitigation (brand, operational, financial, technological, contractual)

We will have a drawing to give away 3 iPad minis!
