MEMBER TIP
A BACKUP PLAN IS NOT A DISASTER RECOVERY PLAN
By Rick Catron, Account Development Executive, Auxiom

In a recent new client meeting, the conversation naturally turned to questions about backups and a disaster recovery plan. When I asked the client if they had a disaster recovery plan in place, they replied proudly with how extensive their backup plan is. "Oh we have several copies that go back years with a cloud backup also," they said. I paused and once again asked them if they had a disaster recovery plan. They looked at me with a furled brow and restated, "I just told you about how many backups we have, didn't you hear me?"

You may ask the same thing, if you didn't know what an actual disaster recovery plan entails. Having a backup is good. Having multiple backups is great, and having multiple backups in several locations is awesome. One question: where do you restore that backup if your local resources are gone or compromised?
