In fact, the most important disaster recovery decisions are not about technology. See more in the Veritas document.
Disaster Recovery Planning
For many organizations, a “disaster” usually means something that impacts the data center from the outside, such as the wrath of a storm or of a violent terrorist act.
While newsworthy events should inspire reflection on the state of our preparations, disaster recovery assessment shouldn’t be limited to the consequences of a hurricane, earthquake or similar catastrophe.
Lower profile but nevertheless important events – from software bugs to hardware failures – that may be
every bit as consequential as fire or flood, need to be considered as well.
