This is a guest post from vCloud Service Provider, Bluelock.

Hurricanes, power outages and plain, old human carelessness may be some of the things you worry about when it comes to protecting your applications. Have you considered how you will bring your top tier, mission critical applications back online without power? How about if a flood fries some hardware at your internal site?

If you’re relying on a traditional disaster recovery solution, you may be stuck playing the “wait-it-out” game when push comes to shove.

Cloud-based Recovery-as-a-Service; however, affords a different experience for the recovery process. By leveraging a cloud service provider to protect your most critical, top tier VMware-virtualized applications, you can get back online even when your primary data center is underwater or without power. Simply call your provider, like Bluelock, and they can execute your runbook and failover on your behalf. No waiting, no guessing, just reliable, affordable, simple recovery.

Watch a live demonstration of this Recovery-as-a-Service solution in Bluelock’s free webinar on December 18, 2013 at 2 p.m. ET. Protect Your Data and Apps from a Zombie Apocalypse and Other Less Likely Disasters will feature a look at cloud-based application recovery from the perspective of a total business disaster, more specifically, the if the Zombie Apocalypse were to strike.

The interactive webinar will include several live demos of the solution and will teach users how to protect any VMware-virtualized applications in a simple and affordable way.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Architect applications and workloads for top tier protection
  • Use self-service and click-to-test capabilities
  • Make your DR solution more cost-effective, simple and efficient

And, one lucky webinar attendee will win an iPad Mini!
