Accidents happen, some can be controlled and other will be horrible a surprise. Your business should have a disaster plan for days like these. Disaster plans can save you time and even save jobs when things so south. Your business should have more then just a disaster plan, you should have it tested to make sure it holds up when the disaster occurs.
• Have a bulletproof recovery plan. When it comes to a disaster plan your recovery plan should be just as important. Make sure you can be up and running after the disaster happens. Don’t let a little accident stop workflow.
• Test your plan. Just like you should test your disaster plan you should test your recovery plan. This should be done multiple times a year, as business changes so should your plan. Test your plan on and off the business site.
• Redundancy. Your recovery and disaster plan can be cut down from days to hours keeping business under control at all times. When you spend day trying to recover it could interrupt business operations. Redundancy can extend to alternative data centers for key servers and data.
• Consider hiring managed service providers. Most companies find it cost effective to outsource this to another company that has more resources and back up plans. This could save time, money and peace of mind.
