Tim will present "Linux System Disaster Recovery Planning"

Linux, unlike many other Unix environments, is actually very easy to recover after a system failure or other disaster - *IF* you have appropriate backups and boot media and a disaster recovery plan.

By defining system backups appropriately, ensuring that you have a full listing of the necessary hardware (in case you have to replace the entire system), having a manual operation plan while the recovery is occurring, and keeping boot media and system backups offsite, everyone - from the smallest business to the largest corporation can easily turn a system disaster into a non-event.

We will examine various recovery scenarios and build a sample disaster recovery plan centered around a Linux environment."
