Does Your Business Continuity Plan Rely on Prevention or Cure?


In todays communications-dependent business world, disaster may come in the guise of an act of God, or an act of war. It may also come in the form of such unremarkable events as ISP problems, server outages, systems changes, network glitches, or routine upgrades. With a little bad luck, any one of these can trigger a single point of failure for a major problem.


Increasingly, companies are looking for a more proactive approach to disaster management than traditional disaster recovery can provide. Its time, as Rick Devenuti suggests in his foreword, to change our thinking about preparedness. Disaster-Proofing Information Systems:

* Provides a methodology for underwriting business continuity through end-to-end availability and resource distribution

* Takes a close look at best practices and available products and tools for colocated, fault-tolerant systems

* Illustrates how all components of a disaster avoidance implementation can carry their own weight on a daily basis, unlike traditional disaster recovery cost allocations


END-TO-END DISASTER MANAGEMENT FOR YOUR:

* databases

* applications

* servers

* infrastructure

* Internet links

* workstations

* remote users

* personnel

* facilities


This book utilitizes [todays new system capabilities] through a method called SHARED that integrates high availability with disaster avoidance to provide systems that are highly redundant and tolerant of disaster in whatever form it occurs. It will help you chart a course toward systems that avoid the need for disaster recovery...and provide other operational benefits in the areas of performance, reliability, and maintainability. -- Richard R. Devenuti, CIO, Microsoft Corporation
