Disaster Recovery Plan/Solution
Disasters of both the man-made and natural varieties -from hurricanes, wildfires, and floods, to "brown outs" and network failures- all bring home the need for data protection and the ability to recover quickly from outages and site incidents to resume operations. Organizations must ask themselves unpleasant "what if" questions in order to determine their vulnerabilities in the face of these potential disasters, which can impose unacceptable interruptions on business and services.
Once the "what ifs" have been asked, businesses generally recognize the need for Disaster Recovery (DR) planning to protect critical data and resume operation in the event that disaster strikes. It goes without saying that the IT department of an organization has a high stake in this, since their credibility is on the line, as users will depend overwhelmingly on the support of the IT department to get business operations back to normal after a disaster.
