BC/DR describes a set of applications built to minimize the impact of downtime on an enterprise’s operations in the aftermath of an emergency (natural disasters, terrorist attacks, major disruptions to a company’s network, etc.). These applications consist of backup plans to transfer data and control access and offload other activities to one or more alternate enterprise sites, including data centers. Recovery time varies based on numerous factors, ranging from the few seconds needed to automatically transfer control and reroute traffic from primary to secondary sites once a failure or disruption is detected, to several minutes.
