Take the stairs or elevator to the lower level and head East, though you will quickly lose orientation. Look for room 86-01 and note that the parking garage also provides access from a level below for $6, up from $1.50 or so. :(

You probably have a good sense of data protection in the sense of "backups" but alas, there is more to it. This talk will cover ten key aspects of Data Protection and discuss open source technologies that address them.

  2. Resilient – Resistant to mechanical failures/outages
  3. Versioned – Accessible in a previous state
  4. Replicated – “Backed up” to local and remote locations
