The online session “There’s no plan like a back-up plan: Get ready for a disaster recovery” with around 100 active participants took place on August 25, 2021. Its organisers – OVHcloud and *instinctools – shared industry insights and expert knowledge about how to get ready for disaster recovery from technical and business perspectives.
Michael Kantner, a Senior Presales Engineer at OVHcloud talked about how you can modernize your infrastructure to be ready for disaster. He described the two key parameters that businesses need to develop before creating their business continuity plan – RTO / TPO and provided the best practices for implementing the IT Disaster Recovery Plan strategies.
Disaster recovery is really underrated but it’s a crucial part of business continuity, especially for digital businesses. It doesn’t matter if you have a classical IT infrastructure, on-premise data centre, whether you are using bare metal or a virtual machine, there will surely be a way for disaster recovery.

Mehdi Hermi, Managing Director, *instinctools, talked about the challenges of monolithic applications, the best practices and challenges of microservice applications, and how they make things easier when it comes to disaster recovery.
The modernization of your infrastructure and applications and utilizing the full power of container orchestration will give you the best chances to ensure your business continuity. Disaster recovery can be made in a simple way but you can also invest some time to modernize your application and have the best scenario for disaster recovery.
– Mehdi Hermi, *instinctools.
The webinar ended up with a Q&A session where the speakers covered the questions from the attendees about how to make the offsite backup faster, how to avoid vendor lock-in, and adopt microservices infrastructure without redeveloping everything.
