*Call for Paper submission for CentOS Dojo Brussels 2016.*

*Title*: Relax-and-Recover simplifies Linux Disaster Recovery

*Speaker*: Gratien D'haese, IT3 Consultants, Belgium

Linux Disaster Recovery exercises are not every day tasks and most system
engineers lack real-time experience how to practice them.
This talk will describe the basic knowledge about disaster recovery (DR)
and Business Continuity (BC) and will go deeper into the different aspects
of each.
However, we will also show you how to start up DR plan and explain some
handy tools, such as Relax and Recover (rear) so you can get started and
being prepared.

We will dive into Relax-and-Recover (rear), which has a modular disaster
recovery engine completely written in bash and released under GPL v2
Rear can store the details about your systems on disk (NAS, USB, SAN,...)
or network (PXE, NFS, CIFS,...) including the complete backup.
It also creates a bootable image which you need to execute a bare metal
restore. Furthermore, thanks to the modular concept, we can integrate rear
with external backup solutions (commercial or open source) to do the backup
and restore part which makes rear very scalable in big enterprises.
Rear scales even with Cloud solutions and is the heart of another great
project (drlm or disaster recovery linux manager).
