IT Disaster Recovery (IT DR) refers to the processes, policies and procedures related to preparing for recovery or continuation of technology infrastructure after a disruption or disaster. Most IT DR plans look to ensure that core, high-priority operations continue or at least resume within an acceptable time after a disaster.
Implementation of IT Disaster Recovery involves resilience of the entire technology chain that supports critical applications, including:
• Data Centers, Workstations, Desktops, Laptops and other computing equipment
• Data and other information
• Servers and routers
• Networks and Telecom infrastructure
Why IT Disaster Recovery
IT is the backbone of every business. An IT disaster can cause a companywide disruption. Per Gartner, 2 out of 5 organizations that experience a severe disaster go out of business within five years. Most organizations are now critically dependent on IT. The fact is that no business is immune to disasters, which can strike at any time, often without prior notice, and at the worst possible time. And when the IT fails down, most organizations are unable to function. At best, a severe disaster could merely incapacitate a business, allowing it to crawl back to normalcy over a period of time. At worst, the business can be permanently crippled, or may even shut down.
