Disaster Recovery: Perceptions vs. Realities

Technology is not immune to false promises and there may be no better example than the faith companies put into their Disaster Recovery plans. The issue with this false promise begins in the very term, Disaster Recovery: not all disasters are equal and not everyone defines what recovery means the same way. It would be impossible to recount the number of times we have walked into a business that was confident in their untested, untried, and untrue plan to recover from a disaster. Many people also tend to think of disasters as Acts of God – floods, fires, earthquakes, or other weather related events – when a corrupted database or internal sabotage can be just as damaging as natural disasters, if not more so. For the purposes of this narrative, a disaster is anything that would cause complete interruption of business, and recovery will be defined as the ability to get your business back up and running.
