Disasters can happen at any time, from man-made ones to natural. Whilst you can't protect you business from all disasters, you can however take steps to ensure your business is robust enough to handle a disaster.
Backups and Disaster Recovery Plans go hand in hand. Having a reliable and tested plan in place can mean the difference between removing from an outage and closing your business for good.
What Makes a Solid BDRP?
The ideal BDRP should consist of the following:
> On-site backups (Tape, External HDDs, SAN, NAS, etc...)
> Off-site backups (Cloud or physical secondary location)
> Backup rotation system (to test that backups are actually working)
> Inventory of Hardware (spare HDDs, keyboards, mice, etc...)
> Potential Problem Analysis (to plan for as many outcomes as possible)
> Skeleton Staffing
> Communications System (to reach out to your customers)
Key Benefits of Having a BDRP?
The benefit of having implemented a BDRP in your business is so that when a disaster occurs, you're ready for it. Your business will have a skeleton staff and a fallback location to operate the business from. This ensures business continuity.
