How much fear is behind the tens of thousands of daily searches for backup disaster recovery?
How do we know if our back up is really working? What will we be able to restore, really?
There is a tremendous benefit in testing the backup systems you have in place. If you have ever lost data, from something as simple as contact information to logins, we want to know that if there was a disaster, we are able to restore what was lost.
What is disaster recovery?
Basically, disaster recovery in the world of IT involves having a pro-active action plan to protect an organization from being put at risk due to equipment failures due to natural disasters, cyber-attacks and more.
Many organizations, especially ones that have significant data, secure information and large networks, implement a disaster recovery plan. These plans are a set of policies, procedures to limit disruption caused by a disaster that has a negative impact on day to day business operations. These disasters affect productivity, which affects the bottom line. Just as most things in life, a proactive solution is the best plan.
Disaster Recovery Solutions
With a functioning backup system in place, files can be restored. Many people have a backup system and rely on that. But they typically don’t check to make sure the backup system is working properly or see what is actually being backed up until they have a loss.
After a data crash is not the time to discover the backup system in place has failed, or, more likely, has failed to restore the information actually wanted or needed. Many companies don’t know how much space is required for the backup. This results in the system not being able to restore all that was needed, simply because it just wasn’t large enough to hold the amount of data required.
Disaster recovery plans can address restoring servers with backup, backup testing, addressing issues with exchanges, software restoration and more.

Companies spend far less money when dealing with disaster recovery when they already have a plan in place that allows for maintenance and backup testing. If there is a disaster, those companies with ongoing support are more likely to have a smooth disaster recovery than those who don’t. Even one failure of the backup system can create serious data loss that is critical.
