Disaster Recovery Planning and Procedures

Regardless of how much you planned out redundancy and fault tolerance, when disaster strikes, it can be devastating.

You need to have a powerful backup plan for your data and a comprehensive disaster recovery plan as well.

Data Backup

Disaster recovery (or DR for short) is pretty simple in the case of data. If disaster strikes you better have a good data backup plan; one that fits your organization’s needs and budget. Your company might have a written policy as to what should be backed up, or you might need to decide what is best. Data can be backed up to a lot of different types of media (or to other computers), but generally the best method is tape backup.
