Why I was worried

stevetux's picture

I'm not proud of it, and I think it would have been better
not to have worried, but I was worried, because I know that
the U.S. has ten times as many lawyers per capita than
Europe has; I know that the U.S. is a litigious society; and
I was naive about how predominant Linux had become in the
marketplace.

I'm not worried now.

Thanks for the great column, Chris.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
