Even if you haven't been affected by a disaster – natural, man-made or otherwise, that doesn't mean you can neglect to keep your disaster recovery practices current.
In an ideal DR scenario, IT personnel would be prepared to handle multiple disaster categories, with their actions dictated by clearly defined and documented procedures. Application recovery would be prioritized on the basis of service levels driven by well thought out recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO) metrics. Much of the recovery would be automated through replication and other recovery tools.
But we all know that's not always the case.
In Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com's first DR ezine, Disaster Recovery Fundamentals, you'll get a closer look at some DR basics and discuss a lingering concern many storage managers face: the business-IT expectations gap. Many DR plans aren't aligned with the data's value to the company – learn how to make sure your critical data is protected effectively.
Check out this ezine today and get a concise guide to disaster recovery essentials, from building a plan to putting it to the test.
