Raising the bar on storage: How to improve your disaster recovery, ransomware prevention, and backup strategy
Data is an organization’s critical asset, which is why safeguarding it against ransomware attacks, natural disasters, emergencies, or technical failures is a top priority.

AWS released a series of educational webinars and whiteboarding videos that discuss how to raise the bar on data protection in the AWS Cloud.

Why not have the back-end processing take place separately so you can receive a notification a few minutes later with your permit attached?
