Introduction

Probably the best place to start a discussion of disaster recovery is with a definition of what is meant by disaster recovery. Disaster recovery can be defined as a set of activities designed to reduce the likelihood, duration, and impact of a disaster. Here’s where some people get confused. A disaster is not just a tornado, hurricane, flood, fire, or earthquake, although those are certainly major disasters. In a server environment, a disaster can be something as simple as a failed hard drive, a bad Ethernet adapter, or a deleted mailbox on a mail server. The difficult part of disaster-recovery planning is that you have to take into account all these factors during your plan.
