Presentation of “Metro Cluster HA or DR“ was from Czech TAM’s David Pasek  (VCDX200) and Standa Jurena. A lot of information from the field. And they give us a lot of information from Metro Cluster HA and DR. At the end of the presentation you should know the main reasons for “what to choose” Metro Cluster HA or DR.
