So when it comes to planning for disasters, you have to consider not just prevention plans, but also what to do if a disastrous event does happen.
You need a Disaster Recovery (DR) plan.
Having a DR plan doesn’t just mean having access to appropriate levels of processing power ready to crank up copies of your server applications. There’s more to it than that.
Most importantly, you need a good backup to ensure that no vital company or customer data is lost — contracts, proposals, sales records, email, etc. — and that you can point your DR’d applications at the data they need for resumption of business activity.
Thankfully, new technologies keep making DR backups easier and more cost-effective.
