There is no single recovery technology capable of spanning today's vast and varied IT landscape consisting of on premise IT equipment integrated with various cloud services. Businesses use information technology to quickly and effectively process information. Employees use electronic mail and telephone systems to communicate and Electronic data interchange (EDI) is used to transmit data including orders and payments from one company to another with servers process information and store large amounts of data. Desktop computers, laptops and wireless devices are used by employees to create, process, manage and communicate information. What do you when your information technology stops working?
As hybrid IT becomes increasingly normal, your data centers can be a combination of in-house and external data centers, public and private clouds from various providers and sprinkled with legacy systems. This complex IT service configuration creates multiple points of potential failure which can make it harder to recover from a system failure. Insurance can reduce some of these costs but cannot replace lost customer goodwill. An information technology disaster recovery plan (IT DRP) should be developed in conjunction with the business continuity plan. Priorities and recovery time objectives for information technology should be developed during the business impact analysis. Technology recovery strategies should be developed to restore hardware, applications and data in time to meet the needs of the business recovery.
Businesses large and small create and manage large volumes of important electronic information or data. Some systems and data are vital to the survival and continued operation of the business. The impact of data loss or corruption from hardware failure, human error, hacking or malware could be significant. A plan for data backup and restoration of electronic information is essential. Businesses need to define, document, and test your recovery processes on an on-going basis to keep pace with IT and business changes.
