Tiered Disaster Recovery - SD CHI 08

Cover
Not all enterprise applications are of equal importance to the ongoing operations of the corporation. Still, many DR plans tend to treat all applications in the same manner. But applying the same safeguards to all apps equally in a DR plan is likely to result in over protecting the less critical apps while not providing enough assurance for the ones that critical to the business continuity.

By treating all applications equally, the recovery process is burdened by having to restore all applications simultaneously--an unlikely event even in smaller organizations. A tiered DR plan helps to address this problem by creating different levels of protection that can be applied to different applications and systems, with associated recovery requirements designed to stagger restoration efforts.

This session will cover:

  • Classifying applications and systems into tiers
  • Determining how many classifications and service levels you should consider
  • Documenting your tiers and service level agreements
  • Getting buy in from management and business units
