Title:
From Hell to Heaven - Disaster happen and how to recover

Abstract:

When disaster strikes recovery is imperative and in the short amount of time possible. And also because not everything is documented, in this presentation I will guide you through real disaster situations and how recovery was made. I will also go through systems put in place to prevent/alleviate future disasters.
