The disaster recovery (DR) white paper is a comprehensive, 10-page guide with narratives, infographics, helpful links, and expert advice on data backup and recovery.

A key focus of the document will be differentiating confusing concepts, such as disaster recovery, data backup, and business continuity. The DR white paper answers such questions as:

  • Do I need DR planning?
  • What is Recovery Time Objective (RTO)?
  • What is Recovery Point Objective?
  • How can I find my RTO and RPO?
  • What is business continuity?
  • What is a business impact analysis (BIA)?

“It can be complex differentiating between key concepts in DR, says Sarah Ganong, director of marketing for EATEL Business. “Many businesses are realizing the true cost of data loss, and hopefully this guide will help them to formulate plans.”

The guide is broken up into four sections, including:

  • Section 1: The Difference Between Data Backup/Protection and Disaster Recovery (DR)
  • Section 2: Assessing Data Threats
  • Section 3: Five Steps to a Data Backup and DR Plan
  • Section 4: Plan With The Expert
