What Actually Happens to Your Data when a Disaster Happens?

What Actually Happens to Your Data when a Disaster Happens?

No one ever hopes that they have to take advantage of their disaster recovery solution, but it is something that every business needs to have in order to sustain operations even in the worst of times. Understanding how these solutions work, as well as the goals your organization has for them, are critical to recovering post-disaster.

We’ll walk you through exactly what happens when you deploy data backup in the event of a disaster recovery incident, as well as what you should aim for and how to proceed following the event.

What Happens with Disaster Recovery?

True to its name, disaster recovery aims to help your organization prepare and respond to events that impact its ability to sustain operations. These events could include natural disasters like floods and electrical storms, hardware failure, and hacking attacks. The goal is to minimize data loss while ensuring operational continuity, no matter the circumstances.

Disaster recovery has two primary aspects: data backup and establishing a disaster recovery strategy. Data backups are copies of your data that are stored off-site in a safe location to be later deployed through the use of your disaster recovery solution. The disaster recovery solution itself deploys the data backups to temporary hardware that can keep a minimum level of operations and functionality. If you don’t implement data backup and disaster recovery, such scenarios as those mentioned previously can completely wipe out your organization.

What Are Your Goals?

You should have clearly defined goals for your data backup and disaster recovery plan. Basically, you need to identify the absolute minimum baseline of data and operational continuity your organization needs to get back in business following a disaster. This asks a lot of difficult questions of you, the business owner, such as what data needs to be a priority, what aspects of your organization’s operations need to be maintained in the event of a disaster, and who is required in order to ensure all of this can be pulled off without a hitch. You should also ensure that you focus on minimal downtime following such an event, as downtime is often associated with hidden costs that you might not budget for otherwise.

How Should You Move Forward?

By now it should be clear that your organization cannot hope to move forward without a contingency plan for the future. The truth of the matter is that data backup and disaster recovery are but one part of a comprehensive business continuity plan.
