INTRODUCTION

Humans tend to think optimistically. We plan for the best outcomes because we strive to make them happen. As a result, many organizations implicitly design their computing and data storage systems around the idea that they will operate as expected. They employ front-line fault-tolerance technologies such as RAID and multiple network adapters that will carry the systems through common, simple failures. However, few design plans include comprehensive coverage of catastrophic failures. Without a carefully crafted approach to backup, and a strategic plan to work through and recover from disasters, an organization runs substantial risks. They could experience data destruction or losses that cost them excessive amounts of time and money. Business principals and managers might even find themselves facing personal liability consequences for failing to take proper preparatory steps. At the worst, an emergency could permanently end the enterprise. This book seeks to guide you through all stages of preparing for, responding to, and recovering from a substantial data loss event. In this first part, you will learn how to assess your situation and plan out a strategy that uniquely fits your needs.
