Back-to-Basics: What is Disaster Recovery?

Disaster recovery is the process of resuming normal operations following a disaster by regaining access to data, hardware, software, networking equipment, power and connectivity. The goal is to be operational amidst the disaster and return systems to normal as soon as possible. Disasters can include natural events like earthquakes or hurricanes, failure of equipment or infrastructure, such as a power outage or hard disk failure, man-made calamities such as accidental erasure of data or loss of equipment, and cyber attacks by hackers or malicious insiders.

Our friends at TechTarget have compiled an all-encompassing analysis of Disaster Recovery with links to a BCDR Guide, DRaaS services, proven DR test plan best practices, and more. Click here to learn more at TechTarget.
