Disaster Recovery: Courting Disaster
O'Hanlon, Charlene
T.H.E. Journal, v39 n9 p36-44 Sep 2007
An inadequate or nonexistent disaster recovery plan can have dire results. Fire, power outage, and severe weather all can brin down the best of networks in an instant. This article draws on the experiences of the Charlotte County Public Schools (Port Charlotte, Florida), which were able to lessen the damage caused by Hurricane Charley when it hit in the summer of 2004. Through the foresight of Charlotte County's director of technology, Chris Bress, the school was able to resume operations only two weeks after the hurricane struck. This article provides tips on how districts may implement a disaster recovery plan, and explains several myths and realities about disaster recovery plans.
