Which Disaster Recovery strategy is right for my organization?
Threat of disaster is always there with organization. So it becomes inevitable to be prepared if an eventuality were to strike. Disaster recovery planning is one of the key preparations for smooth and secured functioning of any organization, and so is the choosing of right disaster recovery strategy.
Usually the disaster recovery planners do cost evaluation corresponding to their performance in order to arrive a decision. Disaster recovery planner also consider the need for cold, warm and hot disaster recovery sites depending on the specific need of his organization.
In case of cold site, you don't require to invest in a facility which remains un-utilized unless required. Instead, you may either lease or reserve a space in a third-party data center which can be utilize if a disaster were to strike. You should also maintain a substantial distance between the two sites. In another strategy, you can also create a cold site in your facility and keep it ready with the basic infrastructure.
In case of warm site, if the storage system storing the organization's data can be accessed directly through servers or can be stored from the tape, activation of disaster recovery can be initiated in few hours.
In case of hot site, organizations can resume their normal operations soon after disaster strikes making primary site wracked. A hot site also allows you to adopt a hybrid approach to data restoration and resume operation.
