Best practices in disaster recovery tests

Sponsored by

DR testing is frequently put off or overlooked entirely. However, many surveys show that IT pros are not confident in their ability to recover in a timely manner following a disaster. There are a variety of reasons why IT people lack confidence in their DR plans, but many simply lack confidence in the backup/DR technologies they rely on. Technology isn't a substitute for a good backup strategy. And testing is the only way to find holes in your strategy. This Handbook offers guidelines for disaster recovery testing today, with a look at the variety of technologies and practices in use. You will find an expert Q&A outlining technologies that can make DR testing more effective. Another piece takes a look at how one company's quarterly DR test helped prepare them for Hurricane Sandy. And finally, check out a piece on DR testing for the cloud.
