Organizations are responsible for implementing technologies to enable the business while keeping critical data, applications and processes secure and running 24x7. Would failure to prepare for technological or natural disaster disrupt your business and lead to financial catastrophe? Is cloud based virtualization DR technologies for your servers, desktops and backups appropriate for your IT environment needs and budget?

David Andrews, Infrastructure Manager at Mass Property Insurance, and Brian McCarthy, Senior Cloud Specialist at Whalley Computer Associates will discuss cloud building blocks and present a customer perspective as to the automated processes they have put into place ensuring that computing resources are verifiable and available.

This session will also take a look at lessons learned during the ongoing coronavirus/COVID19 pandemic.

MTUG thanks our volunteer board member James Harder for his assistance coordinating this event.
