What does it have to do with Linux?

Mr. Searls,
This is worst of your columns. Sorry. It is mostly re-prints from websites. The Linux Journal could have printed links to those websites and save a few trees. You also failed to show how Linux or FOSS helped (if any) company keep running in all this chaos. Sig and his team would have had to work hard to protect M$ Windows servers as well.

Still interesting

But yes, where's Linux in all that info? C'mon Doc.. :)

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.
