Making sure you can sleep at night, we automate monitoring and backups and create a complete disaster recovery plan where needed.
The primary purposes of a Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) are as following:
1. Prevention (pre-disaster): The pre-planning required — using mirrored servers for mission critical systems, maintaining hot sites, training disaster recovery personnel – to minimize the overall impact of a disaster on systems and resources. This pre-planning also maximizes the ability of an organization to recover from a disaster
2. Continuity (during a disaster): The process of maintaining core, mission-critical systems and resource “skeletons” (the bare minimum assets required to keep an organization in operational status) and/or initiating secondary hot sites during a disaster. Continuity measures prevent the whole organization from folding by preserving essential systems and resources.
3. Recovery (post-disaster): The steps required for the restoration of all systems and resources to full, normal operational status. Organizations can cut down on recovery time by subscribing to quick-ship programs (third-party service providers
The primary objective of Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is to enable an organization to survive a disaster and to continue normal business operations. In order to survive, the organization must assure that critical operations can resume/continue normal processing. Throughout the recovery effort, the plan establishes clear lines of authority and prioritizes work efforts.
The following key of Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) should be to:
- Provide for the safety and well-being of people on the premises at the time of a disaster
- Continue critical business operations
- Minimize the duration of a serious disruption to operations and resources (both information processing and other resources)
- Minimize immediate damage and losses
- Establish management succession and emergency powers
- Facilitate effective co-ordination of recovery tasks
- Reduce the complexity of the recovery effort
- Identify critical lines of business and supporting functions
