As the name implies, Disaster Recovery is a method of regaining access and functionality to its IT infrastructure after events like a natural disaster, cyber attack, or even business disruptions related to things such as the COVID-19 pandemic. All of these cant be predicted as to when they might occur, but they can be planned for.
Disaster recovery relies upon the replication of data and computer processing in an off-premises location not affected by the disaster.
