Talk Title: Cloud Based Disaster Recovery

Brief Description about the talk: In this talk, we will discuss IT disaster recovery and more specifically on using the public cloud as the recovery site, with a focus on AWS. The CenturyLink SafeHaven solution will be used to initiate more detailed discussions. In the same time, we share some of our experience working with public cloud platforms including AWS.
Audience level: most of the topics will be aimed for beginner/everyone while some specifics may require deeper knowledge of AWS
