When considering your backup and data recovery operations, it is vital to think about how it will all work in an impacted setting. How are systems going to find each other?
How can you authenticate to them? These questions and more were discussed in Tintri's latest Geek Out! Technology Demo Session on Ransomware Recovery. These demos are designed to be interactive, and we often receive great feedback from the participants. One unsolicited response to this recent session was from Burdweiser, as he is affectionally called from his days of service (thank you for that service, by the way). His blog post Tintri vs. Pure Storage Ransomware Protection for VMware did an awesome job describing the ransomware data recovery experiences with both Pure Storage and Tintri VMstore from a boots-on-the-ground perspective. It was a great compare and contrast of the challenges faced when disaster strikes and how infrastructure design can either help or hurt a quick recovery process.
