Understanding your High Availability and Disaster Recovery Options by Brian Nordland, HelpSystems. 

Nearly 60% of IBM i shops list High Availability as a top concern for the future, but less than 50% have a high availability solution in place to help recover from a disaster. Each company has unique needs when it comes to high availability and disaster recovery. Come and learn: 

 1 - The different technologies and solutions that are available to protect your critical business data 
 2 - Which types of solutions may be a good fit to consider for your environment.
