Which killer BDR stories do you remember from September?

Our apologies if the image of Michael Myers, the psychotic serial killer from the Halloween series, spooked you, but Halloween, the holiday, is only a month away —so it seemed appropriate.

It’s that time of the month where we compile a list of our top backup disaster recovery (BDR) and business continuity lessons lessons from the month. Top categories include selling business continuity, Datto and human error.

If you don’t remember many BDR lessons from September, it’s all right. We did the work for you by going through our archive and pulling out our top posts.

What has Datto been up to this month?

The Norwalk, Connecticut-based data BDR technology provider is hosting its third annual partner conference next year — and it’s not going to be in Las Vegas.

Where does business continuity come into the picture?

Business continuity is what you’re selling to customers — not backup or BDR. Natural disasters come and go, but people, on the other hand, will never let you down. People make errors and cause disasters.

Talk in their language

Sell businesses continuity to customers in a way they’ll understand. Speak their langauge. Take the technology out of the discussion and replace it with business solutions.

If we missed one of your favorite BDR stories from September, let us know in the comments section below.
