Disaster recovery (DR) is an area of security planning that aims to protect an organization from the effects of significant negative events. DR allows an organization to maintain or quickly resume mission-critical functions following a disaster.
As businesses have become more reliant on high availability, the tolerance for downtime has decreased.
A disaster can have a devastating effect on a business. Studies have shown that many businesses fail after experiencing a significant data loss, but DR can help.
Preparing for a disaster requires a comprehensive approach that encompasses hardware and software, networking equipment, power, connectivity and testing that ensures DR is achievable within RTO and RPO targets.
