Backup and Recovery Plan
The Backup and Recovery Plan presents the aspects of the solution relevant to backup and recovery, identifies and describes weaknesses in the system, and describes backup methods and recovery steps. This plan should encompass several different scenarios, accounting for different types of failure. This could include steps for replacing hardware, rebuilding/modifying/replacing the operating system and applications, restoring data, or hot backup systems that stand in for a failed solution.
This plan is a key component of the solution. Having the plan in place ensures that comprehensive backup and recovery steps will be included in the deployment process. This leads to a solution that meets its availability requirements even if something does fail. It also prevents the compounding of failures when they do occur. Continuous service by the solution will increase customer satisfaction and confidence in that solution.
