Course description

Discover the importance of business continuity and disaster recovery, the ability to recover or restore service after a disaster has occurred, by examining various recovery methods involving backups, the implementation of redundant systems and automatic failover, and, in many cases, high availability mechanisms. Learn about individual differences between high availability and disaster recovery, and the methods utilized in both cases, so that you can deploy cloud-based solutions that are highly available as well as able to be restored efficiently in the event of a disaster.


This course assumes you are familiar with the basic concepts of cloud computing, either from completing CompTIA Cloud+ Parts 1-7 or through outside study.
