Enterprise Backup and Recovery Considerations: How to Maintain Your Restore-Readiness

Enterprise Backup and Recovery Considerations: How to Maintain Your Restore-Readiness

IT systems are vulnerable to a variety of disruptions, ranging from mild (e.g., short-term power outage, disk drive failure) to severe (e.g., equipment destruction, fire) from a variety of sources such as natural disasters, employee errors, and internal or external sabotage. While much of this vulnerability may be minimized or eliminated through technical, management, or operational solutions as part of the organization's risk management effort, it is virtually impossible to completely eliminate all risks. These risks drive the need for reliable and efficient backup/restore systems. This paper will focus on common processes and procedures that should be part of any effective enterprise backup/restore system.
