Leverage the second part of this DRP mini-series to strengthen your processes around DR failover, testing, and maintenance of the DR documentations.

Your Challenge

  • SMB organizations often times find themselves without a primary failover site, significantly limiting IT’s ability to quickly restore operations following a disaster event.
  • Scarce human capital resources coupled with a lack of focus on the DR management process create a high risk of failure for most DR plans.
  • Creating the DRP is an onerous process in itself, and many organizations fail to continuously update and improve once the initial DR plan has been created.

Our Solution

  • Identify your options for co-location, and create a fail-safe set of steps to guide your IT organization through effective DR failover.
  • Leverage this research to assess proficiency and needs, and use these inputs to create comprehensive test documentation that will support the test facilitator through passive testing.
  • Work through the relevant activities presented to keep DR documents maintained, updated, and improved on an on-going basis.
