Disaster recovery (DR) planning has a reputation for being difficult and time consuming. Setting up alternate processing sites, procuring hardware, establishing data replication, and failover testing have been incredibly expensive undertakings.
Disaster Recovery as a Service, or DRaaS, is turning the DR business on its head. The responsibility for all of the gritty details one used to have to juggle in order to ensure that
every system, file, database record, and network element was duplicated at an alternate processing site can now be passed onto a trusted service provider. A face — not just an interface.
DRaaS For Dummies lays the foundation for this new approach to DR. After reading this book, you’ll have a new appreciation for DR professionals and how difficult it used to be for them. Regardless of your role in the organization, taking steps to ensure that critical IT systems will survive a disaster matters.
