    Disaster Recovery Terms You Need to Know

    Like nearly everything else, disaster recovery comes with its own vocabulary. If your company is designing its disaster recovery plan or you’ve experienced a disaster, knowing the following terms and what they mean can help, according to a recent article by SearchServer Virtualization.

    Disaster recovery. This is perhaps the most important term of all. It’s the plan you create in order to minimize the effect of a negative event, whether the event is technological, like a virus, or natural, like a fire or an earthquake.

    Failover. When your primary operational mode has been compromised, you rely on a backup one, which is called a failover.

    Recovery Point Objective. This is the amount of time it can take for your files to be recovered from backup storage so that normal operations can resume.

    Recovery Time Objective. This is the amount of time that your computer, system, application, or network can be down after the disaster occurs.

    If you want to keep your data safe, there’s another term you should be familiar with: Global IP Networks. Our Plano, Texas, data center is HIPPA and PCI compliant and has a number of redundant features to ensure that your data is accessible to you any time of the day or night, 365 days a year. Located in a flood free zone, the Global IP Networks data center is particularly useful to those whose business is located in areas prone to natural disasters.
