Developing a disaster recovery plan for IT infrastructure is key to combating downtime, but where to start? And how do you ensure you are doing it right so that you are prepared should an emergency occur? There are several “gotchas” that can make DR planning onerous, out of budget, or ineffective.

In our video today, we will discuss how to avoid gotchas by:
