What is Disaster Recovery?
Disaster recovery involves a series of actions to be taken in the event of major unplanned outages to minimize their adverse effects. In networking, disasters can result from events such as
electric power failures
underground cable cuts or failures
fire, flood, earthquake, and other natural disasters at a facility
mistakes in system administration
The related concept of business continuity involves insuring that an organization’s critical business processes, including those utilizing IT systems, can be maintained in the event of a disaster.
Disaster Recovery Planning
The best approach to disaster recovery focuses primarily on planning and prevention. All good IT disaster recovery plans consider the three main components of operations: data, systems and people. From the technical perspective, most organizations rely on some form of redundancy to make possible the recovery of data and systems. Redundancy allows secondary data or system resources to be pressed into service on short notice should primary resources fail or otherwise become unavailable.
Traditional network backup strategies, for example, archive copies of critical data periodically so that they can be restored later if needed. If backups are kept onsite or at only location, their value for disaster recovery is low.
As per research around 20% of businesses around the globe experience failure due to natural disaster, power outage, fire or theft in any given year and 80% of these businesses will go down within just more than one year.
