Disaster Recovery Solution and Advantage

Disaster Recovery (DR) is a component of security planning that constitutes the technologies, practices and policies to recover from a disaster that impacts the availability, functionality and performance of an IT service. The disaster may result from a human, technology or natural incident. Disaster Recovery is a subset of business continuity that deals with the large picture of avoiding disasters in the first place. While business continuity involves the processes and strategy to ensure a functioning IT service during and after a disaster, the component of disaster recovery involves the measures and mechanism that help regain application functionality and access to data following a disaster incident.

Disaster recovery solutions may involve a diverse range of options for different DR goals. A well-designed strategy focuses on an optimal tradeoff of cost investments, practicality, and IT burden, with the disaster recovery performance. For instance, if a car risks a puncture during driving, would you rather run expensive run-flat tires; run a regular tire and keep a spare wheel with a replacement kit in the car; or run a regular tire, have no spare wheel and rely on roadside assistance to replace a flat tire? Each option have their own set of implications and require a strategic assessment of the disaster recovery goals. It may be possible for organizations to follow a holistic disaster recovery plan that incorporates different disaster recovery patterns for different use cases as appropriate. For instance, a mission-critical app may require short RTO/RPO objectives while an external marketing database may not impact business operations for long duration following a disaster.
