A disaster recovery solution should be easy to configure and easy to use. The last thing anyone wants to worry about during a disaster is trying to figure out how things work! It is essential that a disaster recovery solution have an easy-to-use and easy-to-access user interface to allow stakeholders — from administrators to operators to application owners — to use it.
It is also very important that your disaster recovery solution meets your compliance requirements by verifying key metrics like RPO and RTO. Proving that you are always ready to meet these metrics is one of the most important aspects of disaster recovery. Your disaster recovery solution should make it easy to verify these metrics on a frequent and even scheduled basis.
A disaster recovery solution should also be able to dynamically generate your disaster recovery documentation and provide an audit log of changes to your disaster recovery plans. This documentation should be easy to customize and able to be automatically sent to key stakeholders as needed. Documentation is one of the most important aspects of a disaster recovery plan but is often overlooked.
Disaster recovery isn’t easy. It costs businesses time, money and resources, but is one of the most-critical plans to have in place for any organization.
The expense of an outage due to disaster far exceeds the cost of having a plan in place.
You need disaster recovery software to streamline and automate your disaster recovery processes, such as creating your disaster recovery plan, testing that plan and executing that plan when the need arises.
Disaster recovery software can provide a single interface for all of these activities and streamline everything from plan creation and testing to plan execution. Disaster recovery software will also ensure all plans are created, tested and executed in a unified fashion, making it easy to understand what is going on in the event of a disaster.
There are many good reasons to do yearly disaster recovery testing.
First and foremost, yearly disaster recovery testing can prove if a disaster recovery plan will work or not. If it does not work, issues are encountered or gaps are found, disaster recovery tests become a great opportunity to make the necessary changes to a disaster recovery plan to ensure it will be successful.
Disaster recovery tests also allow for those executing the test to come up to speed on any changes made to the disaster recovery plan in the last year.
While yearly disaster recovery testing is good, a more frequent DR testing basis is better. More frequent disaster recovery tests increase the rate of success by providing additional opportunities to verify disaster recovery plans and fix any issues encountered.
To ensure disaster recovery plans can be tested frequently, a disaster recovery solution with automation is key. By automating the DR test process, tests become easier to run on a recurring basis.
