Recently, I was involved with the implementation of a replication solution at an electric utility company. This implementation was the center piece of a disaster recovery implementation for one of their power plants. Normally, when a replication solution is implemented, data recoverability at the remote site is mandatory. After all, what good is the replication solution if it cannot be used to recover data at the remote location? What I found strange in this particular situation was the lack of any remote recoverability apparatus.
An excellent and well reasoned article. Critical processes need to be made resilient and it's time we moved on from accepting that data recovery is all that is required to protect business interests. Disaster Resilient design can avoid end-user downtime. Disaster Recovery design accepts that IT failures will bring down business processes.
