BDR: Backup Data Recovery

What Is Backup And Disaster Recovery?

Backup and disaster recovery (BDR) is the process of copying and storing data in a specific location, and then recovering or restoring those files when an emergency occurs, such as data loss or data corruption. Backup and disaster recovery are two separate but connected concepts that organizations should always consider together.

Backup is the process of copying data from one location to another. This can be done on a regular basis, such as daily, weekly, or monthly. The goal of backup is to create a copy of your data that can be used to restore it in the event of a disaster.

Disaster recovery is the process of restoring data from a backup. This can be done if your original data is lost or corrupted. The goal of disaster recovery is to get your business back up and running as quickly as possible after a disaster.

Additional Information:

A BDR Plan is a set of policies and procedures that outlines how your organization will back up and recover its data. A good BDR plan will consider the following factors:
    • The types of data that need to be backed up
    • The frequency of backups
    • The location of the backups
    • The methods used to restore data
    • The costs of backup and recovery

Why Do You Need BDR?

There are many reasons why businesses need BDR. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • To protect against data loss: Hardware failures, natural disasters, and cyberattacks can all lead to data loss.
  • To meet regulatory requirements: Some industries, such as healthcare and finance, are required to have BDR plans in place.
  • To improve business continuity: BDR can help you minimize the impact of a disaster on your business.

Do you want a company that is just blocking the perimeter, or do you want a company that takes a wholistic approach and protects the perimeter, the internal network, and trains staff to account for the human element?
