The basics of disaster recovery

Many people are confused with the term disaster recovery. In fact, many connote it as relief measures during natural disasters (floods, cyclones etc.). But the fact is that disaster recovery is a critical aspect taking businesses into consideration. To put in simple words, disaster recovery is a coordinated activity to enable the recovery of business and IT systems to avoid disruption. It is a term or process related to data security and recovery.

With data and e-mail becoming increasingly more critical to the success and growth of all businesses, protecting this vital information with traditional backups is no longer feasible due to increasing issues of data theft and loss. This is where disaster recovery comes into the picture.

A complete disaster recovery can be achieved by restoring operations to entirely separate geographic locations and different hardware. This creates a complete new ecosystem that assures complete security and recovery of data. Leading service providers use hi-end technology and software to offer a wide and varied range of solutions. In the event of a complete site disaster, your service provider can fully control or assist you with the restoration of your business critical servers, to your chosen disaster recovery site.

Though everything really sounds simple there is a lot of thought and effort put into a disaster recovery process. In case you have not secured your business, it is time you contact a disaster recovery company to get started.
