It depends, every situation is different. The question is often asked of DBA's to provide a solution to very open ended requirements. However, the best solution can only be provided if the database professional is getting all the answers. This session is a case study into many of Disaster Recovery options that we as database professionals have. Understand the answers to the important questions that we should be asking to provide the best solution not only for the database but for the business as well. As an attendee you will learn how to change an answer from it depends into a solid solution that can be built upon. We will take examples from experiences and as a group determine what the best solution is.

I like to help an organization determine what the obstacles are, and help remove them so they can accomplish their mission.”
