Disaster recovery runbook--Chapter One: Planning

Adam Trujillo, Associate Editor
Disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) are necessary components to successful data center implementations. Executives are paying attention to DR and BC for a few reasons: services have been rapidly moving to the Web, placing emphasis on the need for a solid IT foundation; customer, financial and employee data are also electronically manifest in modern businesses; lastly, regulatory compliance holds executives responsible if data is compromised.

All this adds up to higher levels of awareness of how data center operations relate to the health of their organizations. This DR/BC runbook not only discusses why data center and IT operations are worth protecting, but also outlines strategies for doing disaster recovery and business continuity well.
