Disaster Recovery

It depends.

It's different for everyone.

Some say it's getting their system back immediately.
Some say it's not losing any data.
Some say a combination of both.

It also depends on how much money you can spend on the solution.

Selling/implementing DR solutions for over 15 years, the REAL definition is whatever you want it to be. As you can see by the other answers, it depends.

Disaster Recovery

Making sure your recovery system is saving all data.
Being able to rapidly recover such data.
Being smart enough not to have recovery system in same building.
Not spending 500 on a 100 dollar overblown system.

The best example of disaster recovery was what happened in the financial firms after 9/11.
Due to proper foresight, each firm had remote location backup, and enough hardware to return to operation (Note: I did not say, normal) using the remote location.
