10 Quick Disaster Recovery Tips for IT


In the minds of many, a disaster means a hurricane, earthquake, flood, fire or other natural calamity or, possibly, a terrorist attack. These types of disasters are uncommon, but they do happen. However, for the purposes of this article, “disaster” has a broader meaning and thus is much more common. In this context, a disaster is any event that causes either of the following:

  • The destruction of all online operational copies of an organization’s data and/or applications. “Online operational copies” include both the production copies and any ready-to-run backup copies that can be placed in the production role immediately and, preferably, seamlessly.
  • The loss of access to all online operational copies of the organization’s data and/or applications for a sufficiently long period such that a recovery operation will be faster and more cost-effective than waiting for the online operational copies to come back online.
