Disaster recovery: Mantra to win the battle
This concept was originated in about 1970, when the process and methods related to arrangement for recovery upon any natural or artificial disaster came into practice, later it came in spotlight as the dependency of organizations increased with more complex computer setups and other company implementations. These days, most important corporates reserve a different and separate fraction of their IT budget merely for this disaster recovery. To execute a successful and reliable recovery processes are critical even though after a good planning. Selection of the suitable disaster recovery data center can be called the main aspect of the whole process. Avoiding those areas which are prone to disaster is necessary, for instance the Phoenix metropolitan area is said to be one of the safest cities in the US in contrast with it San Francisco and Miami come under the category of “endangered” . The chance seeking hackers always have an eye on their next victim; many natural calamity like earthquake and flooding usually malfunction the availability and hardware of a site, which may lead a website to crash. The involvement of a large scaled capital and labor in a website makes the disaster recovery plan so important to be implemented.
Major prevention strategies
A natural disaster cannot be prevented but the artificial disaster of the site can be prevented by going through certain strategies and best possible steps. Some of them can be concluded as:
Take a backup
When a website crashes, it leads to the loss and damage of many important data as well as much confidential information destroying all the commercial and managerial balance of the corporation. So, with a backup plan, these circumstances can be avoided as the information are “copied” and saved securely and are retrievable if needed in the future, which dramatically reduces the future hassles.
Transferring data to different servers (accessible)
If the data is transferred to a different server or location apart from the present one and can be accessed remotely, then the problem of data destruction can be solved up to much extent. Many web host providers facilitate this feature to reduce the strain and burden of the user, assuring the safety and security of data for the unavoidable circumstances. The user must take care that whether the accessibility is provided by the company or not regardless of the location of the user in the world.
Clouding the data
The data can also be saved by those circumstances by clouding the data and information in any secure and trustworthy cloud providing sites. But the disadvantage in this process is that even the cloud server does not guarantee the protection from those disasters which may happen to them.
Before following any of the above steps, the most important step involved in it is “Data Encryption”, which is a critical as well as essential process in the way of data security and conservation. Data encryption ensures the user that data or files and information are not easily readable and understandable as compared to the plain text, which effectively reduces the possible threats of data leakage, information theft and privacy violation. Following the steps a user can reduce the disaster effects and other circumstances.
