Episode 4: The SuperBowl, The Big Easy, and Disaster Scenarios in the Cloud

February 10, 2017

The Prosiliency Podcast, aka DR in a Bar, is an irreverent, profane and always real look at life and technology from both inside and outside the data center.

 

In this, our fourth episode, we take a trip down south to The Big Easy in New Orleans on SuperBowl Sunday. There, we visit the American Sports Saloon near the French Market, and experience the best crawfish the Crescent City has to offer.  

When you consider doing business on the cloud (aka moving your data there), we recommend you back up your network as well as the applications running there.  Running a reverse DR plan is an important factor in your decision making process to make sure you NEVER lose key data . . . minutes, weeks, or months later.

The Beer: Ragin Cajun - Genuine Louisiana Ale

Vince's Rating: 6.5 (thumbs up!)

Eddie's Rating: 7.0 (thumbs up!)
