Disaster Recovery (DR) in IT is often used but incorrectly understood term. It is very important to have a Disaster Recovery strategy for every business. Many people believe that Data Backup equals Disaster Recovery.
So, let us understand the difference between Backup & Disaster Recovery.
ABackupis a copy of your data on another device or in another location.
Disaster Recoveryis different. If your Primary IT Site goes down for any reason, a Disaster Recovery Site will let you run your entire IT system until your primary environment is up. So, we see that it is very different as compared to Data Backup.
A sound backup strategy combined with the right approach to Disaster Recovery, means you have your Business Continuity covered.
