Nobody wants to shell out a lot of money for something they'll use once or, with any luck, never. But that's where most corporations find themselves today. Network managers see disaster recovery as outside their jurisdiction, and therefore as a competitor for system resources. External incentives to deploy disaster recovery from customers and partners may be pressing, but internal incentives are working against them.This book provides a methodology responsive to those problems. With careful planning, it can actually improve system performance instead of encumbering it. Even if your organization isn't budgeted for disaster recovery planning, you can implement this methodology now, at minimum cost, and reap immediate returns. For companies already invested in system protection software, Buchanan shows network managers how to get started on impact and risk assessment, protection planning, policymaking, and more.
