Dear NetBackup Users,
I came across an awesome story about how one company used NetBackup AIR to save them in a disaster recovery scenario. I was pretty impressed with how they used the technology, and more so by how much it saved them in a real DR situation. Here's the super consolidated and simplified version (or watch the VIDEO):
Super Cool Industries (real names have been changed) had recently upgraded their backup solution to NetBackup 7.5, which features a slick replication technology called AIR (Auto Image Replication). They immediately began using AIR to replicate backup images from one of their plants to another. One day, a crazy ice storm knocked the power out at the first plant, which left both it, and another plant that relied on one of its servers, stranded.
Now, previous to this upgrade, their old way of doing DR was to load up the backup tapes in a truck and send them over to a DR location. If they had to employ this method to get their server back up and running again - in the middle of an ice storm and while roads were frozen over and closed, they literally could've been stranded for weeks, if not longer. However, because they were "AIR -ing" their backup images to the second plant, they simply stood up a virtual machine there, recovered all their data to it, and were back in business the very next morning.
When I heard about the story, I thought to myself, there must be a ton of other folks out there with similar experiences! Right?
So here's what I'm asking:
And BTW, the ZBOARD we're giving away is the Pro Model that goes up to 17 mph and can travel up to 10 miles on a single charge (ZBOARDSHOP.COM)! Check it out:

Here are some quick questions that can help frame your comment below (focused on AIR, but feel free to share any DR experience), and remember, brevity is your friend.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy this fun little contest!
All the best,
