Greater Efficiencies on Your Path to the Cloud

The government is changing how they manage data. The Obama Administration’s Cloud First mandate states that all government agencies must identify and migrate IT services to the cloud by June 2012. As of the beginning of the year, 47% of agencies have already started the migration. With this new movement, do agencies still have business continuity plans in place?

Traditionally, government agencies have developed business continuity plans knowing that only limited data would be available in the event of a system outage, and that a loss of productivity was unavoidable. Now, with information becoming the central asset of government, federal IT managers must drastically review the business continuity and disaster recovery paradigm to cope with the reality of today’s budget environment, big data and government-wide shift of IT policies.

How can program managers remain consistent with the Obama Administration’s Cloud First policy and modify their IT portfolios to fully reap the benefits of cloud computing?

Join us for a webcast this Tuesday, May 22 at 2 p.m. EST to look at how cloud storage and cloud-enabling technologies can help agencies raise the bar for business continuity as an alternative to continued investment in systems and software. Iron Bow’s Data Center Practice Director, Eric Oberhofer, will present the webcast in partnership with NetApp’s Tom Yarmas, CTO of U.S. Public Sector Cloud Technologies.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Leverage cloud computing and virtualization technologies to improve business continuity and disaster recovery
  • Modify IT portfolios to align with White House strategies for government-wide adoption of cloud solutions
  •  Meet recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives in a more cost-effective and efficient way
  •  Mitigate data center downtime and data loss in the event of a system outage
