Don't miss part one of the Disaster Recovery (DR) Best Practices webinar series

"We have been fairly active in VMware architecture for several years now, yet you were able to highlight several important tips that we had never come across before." - workshop attendee


Disaster recovery for virtual environments has changed dramatically in the past 14 months. With the release of vSphere and the vStorage API many new techniques and architecture choices are available. Many of these options are not well-understood, but we’ll clarify them in this free, two-part webinar series.


Part one starts tomorrow - Quest's Larry Loucks wil highlight the latest innovations in vRanger: Quest's industry-leading VMware backup application. In part 2, we’ll share insight we’ve collected across the virtualization industry on cutting-edge DR techniques and strategies.
