| Keep these eight key steps in mind when designing and testing your disaster recovery strategy.
Technology developments have also played a critical role, with more data protection options available than ever before. The changing nature of business applications means that expectations regarding performance and availability have also been raised.
But achieving DR "provability"--or at least greater predictability--remains a challenge. Fundamentally, DR is a holistic endeavor with a number of moving parts. It's fairly easy to deal with one component of DR and for it to perform reasonably well. The hard part is ensuring the coordination and synchronization of the various elements so they function together. To establish more predictable DR, I've outlined the following eight necessary elements.
The elements outlined here transcend the boundaries of the IT infrastructure. It's therefore critical for IT administrators to have a strong understanding of the problems at hand and to learn how to address them so they can influence strategic decision-making wherever possible. This will help them avoid being placed in the Catch-22 situation of solving a problem over which they have no control.
