DR Prep

By Steve Jones,

A few weeks ago we published a number of editorials and articles on disasters and the challenges this brings to data professionals. As we start the new year, I'd like to get you thinking about how you might change your DR planning or processes for the new year. With that in mind, a simple question this week:

How will you approach disaster recovery or business continuity planning differently in 2013?

I'm wondering if you will change some of your processes, or schedule additional testing. You should have at least one test planned each year, but will you make it more comprehensive? Will you schedule more frequent, but less intensive tests?

Another thing to consider is the skill and experience of your staff. It might pay to. Incorporate some of the recovery skills into your weekly or monthly work to ensure that you know how to perform backups, restore in different scenarios, or even relocate your databases to another Windows host.

Let us know this week how you would like to improve your preparations in 2013 and then spend the rest of the year adding th retails to your plan.
