Category: Backup And Recovery

When data is lost, it is important to have a backup and recovery plan in place to ensure that the data can be recovered in the event of a disaster. Operational recuperation is a term for this. Backups are often restored to their original location, or an other location that can be used as the replacement for the lost or damaged data.

A suitable backup copy is saved in a separate system or medium, such as tape, from the source data in order to prevent against data loss due to primary hardware or software failure.
