Hi, I have nearly completed the Disaster Recovery Plan for my company including Software, Hardware, etc.... Now I need to write a Disaster Recovery Plan for my Management team. Anybody know a good reference about DR? example Template or something... Thanks.
A good start of the entire infrastructure would be [here] The article does cover it, but imo its all about budgets and requirements. Also its no good having a plan if you dont "test" it. Good luck! :
I am not sure about resources and dont have the opportunity to check currently but Buck Woody gave a great talk about DR and BC at SQLBits 7 in York last month. Take a look on his site and see if there are any resources there that you can make use of. Also Brad McGehee has done some things in this area and may have downloadable content that you can use to start off your thoughts. For me, this is something that needs to be very much driven by your business managers, so get them involved early and regularly to make sure it is going to meet what they expect. If they expect too much, as Buck said, "there are only so many clowns you can get in a VW", they will need to pick and choose between what they want, what is possible and what they can afford.
