Disaster Recovery

The disaster recovery (DR) describes a process which helps to reactivate a business process or even the whole company within a determined time-frame. This timeframe is measured by the value of the respective process and is fixed by the company. As a disaster may also mean the loss of a complete branch, the DR-concept needs to include offsite strategies as well. Wenn fixing the maximum timeframe, contractual conditions and legal regulations play a role.
