Disaster recovery (DR) is simply the processes, policies, and procedures related to preparing for recovery or continuation of technology infrastructure critical to an organization after a natural or human-induced disaster.

Disaster recovery shouldn’t always conjure up images of airplanes and tsunamis crashing into your datacenter, destroying your environments and ruining your business reputation. Cyber-attacks, hard drive failures, disgruntled employees causing destruction of data, and even simple human errors — these are the REAL threats you should be worried about.
