Disaster Recovery Journal to Host Webinar: "Is the Cloud Ready for Mission Critical Applications?"

BOXBOROUGH, Mass., Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Egenera, a leader in converged infrastructure and cloud management, will present its analysis of cloud computing services for mission critical applications at a webinar to be hosted by Disaster Recovery Journal on Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 2 pm EDT

For well over a decade Egenera has been a leader in the development of highly available virtualized infrastructure solutions, and draws upon its experience gained from thousands of installations. The webinar will feature Scott Harris, vice president of services at Egenera, who has over 15 years of experience managing service-based IT environments and providing consulting services to companies in diverse industries.

Disaster Recovery Journal hosts this webinar series to provide business continuity professionals the insight, information, and inspiration they need to make smarter decisions concerning the overall protection of their organization. 

Bob Arnold, president at Disaster Recovery Journal said, "The question of whether the cloud can support a business's most important applications is highly relevant to our readers and to any enterprise considering taking this step. Egenera's experience in the disaster recovery industry gives them a lot of credibility in speaking to this question and we look forward to hearing them share their expertise."

According to a recent survey on cloud computing trends, 50 percent of respondents said they were confident cloud solutions were viable for mission critical business applications. Actual cloud deployments of mission critical applications are thought to be far lower. In this webinar, Harris will discuss the issue and offer guidance on:

-          Why the cloud is not one-size-fits-all

-          How to approach the cloud from an application-centric point of view

-          How to protect your mission critical applications in the cloud

-          How private, public and hybrid cloud align with mission critical applications
