DCD Turkey tackles disaster recovery readiness challenges in the region, highlights how businesses are bucking that trend on 6th December in Istanbul
As businesses become increasingly dependent on data, disaster recovery planning to maintain business continuity becomes more and more vital as highlighted in the upcoming IT infrastructure event in Turkey.
DCD Turkey, which takes place on 6th December at the Hilton Bomonti Hotel, is set to gather leading IT infrastructure practitioners to debate how a robust disaster recovery strategy can safeguard business continuity with latest cloud technologies in the data center.
“Nowadays, as businesses move closer to real-time operations, any disruption to the flow of business cannot be tolerated. Without a solid, proven disaster recovery plan, businesses are highly vulnerable to loss of customers and prestige because of work process disruptions” says Cem Özkaya, Vice President, Network & Operations from MasterCard, who is set to share the multinational giant’s experiences in building out cloud-based disaster recovery sites in Turkey.
Besides common disaster scenarios such as fire, flood, storms or sabotage, Turkey sits in an earthquake zone and has suffered some severe earthquakes in recent decades, which makes an effective IT disaster recovery plan a crucial strategy for regional IT executives.
Putting data to work- disaster recovery via cloud
Cloud-enabled and open source technologies are increasingly playing a vital role in enabling cost effective and tech efficient solutions. Cloud disaster recovery solutions are therefore heavily in demand as businesses are seeing benefits of faster disaster recovery of their critical IT systems.
“Migrating to a cloud-based disaster recovery platform is daunting to many executives, however there are innovative and interesting solutions on the market that simplify this process”, says Feyyaz Atalay, Country Manager from Brocade who will be exhibiting their solutions at the event.
The event is set to join senior IT executives from Bosch, Siemens, Turkish Airlines, Halk Bank, Sinpas, Open Compute Project, Turkish National Police, eBay, KPMG, TUBITAK, Rittal, Schneider Electric and many more.
“Turkey’s IT leaders are looking into how they can hyper converge their IT to get ready for the cloud. With this year’s conference focus on the next wave of cross-stack IT innovations, we’re excited to bring all these new innovations forward and debate powerful new solutions to help the region’s public and private organisations in their journey towards a software-defined and fully automated future”, says George Rockett, CEO and Co-Founder of DatacenterDynamics.
