When I started my career at a large Parisian software firm in 1995, I naively thought that making a copy of each day's data (with a crude "tar" at the time on an 8 mm DAT Tape Drive) protected data effectively in the event of a disaster.
The volumes were far less than those generated today and I knew very little, especially about legal constraints. At the time, companies were not as dependent on IT as they are now.
Storage Area Networks did not exist and virtualization was still the stuff of science fiction. Things were simpler then. However, thinking back, in many cases it would have been difficult to restore all the data of my customers because I lacked specific skills in backing up data.
More than 20 years have passed since then - years devoted to this speciality of computer science while working for big names such as Nestle, Airbus, Novartis, Merrill Lynch (I helped save some of their data after the collapse of the Twin Towers in 2001), private banks in Switzerland, national television and radio (TSR, RSR, Mauritius Broadcasting Corporation etc.), the police, etc. It is this knowledge, gained from years of technical and practical experience, that I have decided to share with you by creating the "U-Restore™".
Why? Because it is a rare speciality that companies will need more and more, especially with the advent of GDPR, Big Data, etc.
For one month I will accompany you on your own system (the one in place in your company) with practical exercises that will enable you to acquire the reflexes of a good specialist in this field and thereby avoid the pitfalls I myself fell into when, just like you, I thought I had mastered my data backup solution.
With my "U-Restore™" method, which includes exclusive theoretical training, practical fact sheets, and personalized support, you could even consider a career as an independent consultant in this field.
