Lecture Modules
Students will learn to design a recovery solution; design a site recovery replication policy; design for site recovery capacity and for storage replication; design site failover and failback (planned/unplanned); design the site recovery network; recommend recovery objectives (e.g., Azure, on-prem, hybrid, Recovery Time Objective (RTO), Recovery Level Objective (RLO), Recovery Point Objective (RPO)); identify resources that require site recovery; identify supported and unsupported workloads; recommend a geographical distribution strategy.
Students will learn to design for application redundancy, autoscaling, data center and fault domain redundancy, and network redundancy; identify resources that require high availability; identify storage types for high availability.
Students will learn to design failover/failback scenario(s); document recovery requirements; identify resources that require backup; recommend a geographic availability strategy.
Students will learn to recommend storage types and methodology for data archiving; identify requirements for data archiving and business compliance requirements for data archiving; identify SLA(s) for data archiving.
In this case study, you will walk through a fictional scenario with customer requirements and objections and learn how to design a solution that meets the requirements focused on business continuity.
