Seeking companies with in-depth, cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) experience, Data Center World selected Venyu to highlight the market readiness of data center operations to embrace DR services. This announcement reflects the continuation of industry publications and events viewing Venyu’s executives as an authority on cloud hosting, colocation, managed hosting, and cloud backup services.

Within the Infrastructure Management session, Brian Vandegrift, Venyu’s executive vice president, will address one of the IT industry’s most vexing questions: Are companies ready for DR plans that include the cloud? The session titled, “Disaster Recovery (DR) in the Cloud: Are We Ready?” will be held April 20 from 3 to 4 p.m.

Vandegrift will clearly illustrate how physical disasters no longer pose a threat for data if it’s in the cloud and stretched across multiple data center locations, discuss the specialized DR applications available in the market, and review how failover to the cloud is now a “push button” process.
