Free Disaster Recovery Seminars

Negative Footnote:
TechTarget declined my registration for the DR event, which is no biggie, but they have repeatedly refused to explain why. In my second query, I told them I had published this and other TechTarget events and I needed to know more about who was qualified and who was not.

TechTarget remains silent. So I can no longer assume most of you, my readers, will be viewed as qualified. -- Howard

TechTarget invites us to "Disaster Recovery Planning: Data Protection and Rapid Recovery Techniques," coming to San Francisco the week after Labor Day. They say you'll get several new approaches to DR that your organization will be able to apply immediately.

Follow the link for other dates near Boston, MA, and Quebec, Canada in September.

When: Tuesday, September 9 - other dates and locations off reg link
Where: Hyatt Regency San Francisco
Cost: free for IT professionals concerned with DR, storage, and data center operations
