Disaster recovery is a critical area of planning for any business. This plan can include a set of policies and procedures for what to do in case of either a natural disaster or human error that greatly impacts your business.
Companies that manage data need to take extra precaution to make sure that they don't lose their digital assets because replacing or recovering them may not always be an easy option. If you're dealing with anybody else's data or data that keeps your company moving. If you're producing something for video or any type of digital media, that data is your commodity. Taking precautions to protect those assets is like having locks on your doors of your warehouse. Right?
You've got to protect what's yours and disaster recovery is kind of the overarching umbrella of protecting that stuff be it from a single drive failure to an entire chassis failure to your data center getting flooded. There's a lot of different levels of it and a lot of different ways to mitigate it and to defend against it and it all comes down to your tolerances your budgets and things like that, but there's a lot of things to consider it.
