Recovery is the natural by-product of a successful backup; however, there's a world of difference between a recovery that "just happens" and one that is well planned and periodically tested.
A Plan For Success
If you're like most of us in the IT world, you're the man, or woman, with a plan. And it probably looks something like this .. Every virtual machine, regardless of its role, has a nightly image level backup retained for at least seven days. All your application servers, MS Exchange, Oracle and Share Point, have application level backups. File servers are backed up nightly and retained on a daily, weekly and monthly set rotation. You're even backing up Active Directory and the (3) remaining physical servers. Every backup has both a local and remote copy. Life is good and you are a case study in Cover Your Assets style backup . Yep, you've got a plan ... for backup.
So what's your recovery plan look like? Is it even remotely as carefully crafted? After all, recovery is where the rubber hits the road, right?
If you haven't put as much effort into your Recovery Plan as you have the backup schedule, the reality is, when disaster strikes the rubber that hits the road could well be the soles of your shoes.
