A decade ago, when the PC had yet to reach its 10th birthday, a good many organisations were installing data recovery technology that centred around tape backup systems, in case the worst happened.

Fundamental to the DR process is the need to carry out a risk analysis on the firm's IT resources and then plan how to best recover the system in the event of failure, for whatever reason.
