Disaster Recovery Assurance: The often forgotten factor in data protection planning

Written by Dennis Rolland

When you think of data protection, what do you think of? I'll bet that you think of daily backup windows, restore SLAs, tuning back-up systems and off-site archiving. It is easy for those every-day tasks to dominate the data protection discussion. But maybe you should also think about data recovery after all, when it comes right down to it, the only reason you back up all that data, night after night, week after week is so you can recover it!
