What goes into a DR Runbook?

DR Runbook

Back in our April blog post, we discussed the impact of testing your Disaster Recovery plan and how it was critical to run a test failover to ensure complete data recovery. If unknown, the DR test helps determine mission critical business functions and the importance of those functions. The test can expose the losses a business will retain by losing any or all of those functions.

The DR Runbook is created specifically for a seamless recovery for the DR plan.  It is the business’ specific blueprint on how to recover quickly and efficiently from a DR event. 

The Case for Continuous Data Protection

Since data is the lifeblood of every business, companies are constantly figuring out how to best back up their data. Backups are a company’s insurance policy for data loss. But when it comes to recovery, traditional backups can pose an issue: data gaps.

Microsoft O365:  Archiving vs. Backups

 
We help many clients with O365 backups and through this delivery, we come across a frequent question: If archiving 365 data provides the security to prevent data loss from accidental deletion or malicious intent, why do I need to do a backup as well?
 

It can a complicated issue when verbiage in the Compliance section of the E3 and E02 licensing shows archival. But if you look closely, there is a difference between archiving your O365 data and backing it up.
