Understanding Disaster Recovery
Source: John Wiley & Sons
Disaster Recovery (DR) planning is concerned with preparation for and response when disaster hits. The objective of DR planning is the survival of an organization. Because DR planning is such a wide topic, this paper focuses only on the IT systems and users who support critical business processes. Getting this topic alone to fit into a 400-page book is quite a challenge. In this paper the author describes why a person needs disaster recovery planning and what benefits he or she can gain from going through this planning. One may be pleasantly surprised to find out that the benefits go far beyond just planning for disaster.
