Need of Disaster Recovery Center
A backup site or work area recovery site is a location where an organization can relocate following a disaster, such as fire, flood, terrorist threat or other disruptive event. This is an integral part of the disaster recovery plan and wider business continuity planning of an organization. If a disaster occurs and a company has a plan in place, it can continue operations at a disaster recovery site until it becomes safe to resume work at its usual location or a new permanent location.
A disaster recovery site is a place that a company can temporarily relocate to following a security breach or natural disaster. A disaster recovery site ensures that a company can continue operations until it becomes safe to resume work at its usual location or a new permanent location.
When selecting a disaster recovery site, a company should consider the following factors: location, time frame, cost, and resources required. There are two fundamental disaster recovery site options: internal and external. Mobile- and cloud-based disaster recovery sites are becoming increasingly popular.
