Disaster Recovery – Be Prepared

Disaster recovery is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when the disaster will strike and the magnitude. Is your company ready or are you hoping against hope that it will not happen?

What constitutes a disaster?

That is a very good question and a question that only you can answer. In some cases, it is an electrical fire in the server room that destroys or damages the data storage units. It is as simple as someone on the executive team putting their laptop case down for just a moment to pay for a cup of coffee. After they get their change, they find out that the laptop disappeared. That is not a major disaster. The magnitude will increase depending on the data contained on that laptop.

How quickly can you recover?

What does it cost per hour or per day to operate your company?  How much of that cost would continue if your staff is not working because of an IT disaster?  The cost of preparing for a disaster pales in comparison to the cost of recovering from a disaster.
