Backup and Recovery Design Deliverable Template
From MIKE2.0 Methodology
-> You are here: Backup and Recovery Design Deliverable Template
The Backup and Recovery Design task produces a deliverable that describes how and when backups of the system will be performed and how those backups will be recovered in case of system failure.
Example 1 - Backup Recovery plan for assets and content at a Bank
Listed below are example Backup Recovery plan for assets and content at a Bank:
This document is intended to be a complete backup recovery process of the assets and content stored and managed by the Client.
This document is not intended to be a complete business continuity or disaster recovery plan. It is only a plan for regular backups of files and for restoration or recovery of files from regularly scheduled backups after an outage has occurred. It does not include plans for the restoration or recovery of facilities, hardware, or services after an outage.
<< Current overall strategy for backing up systems and files >>
The following schedule lists each of the detailed backup procedures included in this backup and recovery plan. It also indicates the frequency and schedule for each backup and shows who is responsible for each backup.
The Backup Log is used to track the executions of the following backup procedures.
Recovery or Restoration Strategy
Systems or data can be destroyed or corrupted in some cases due to errors, outages, or intentional disruptions. Sometimes only a specific file or file system must be recovered or restored from backups after an outage. Major outages or disruptions may require restoration of most or all of the files from backups. The following sections of this document describe procedures for both minor and major restorations of files from backups.
Recovery or Restoration of an Particular File or File System
In most cases, if a particular file or file system is corrupted or destroyed, only that file or file system needs to be restored from the backups. One of the Recovery Procedures that follow can be used to recover or restore a particular file or file system.
Recovery or Restoration after a Major Outage
If a major outage, such an outage caused by a natural or manmade disaster, has occurred, you may need to restore many or all of the files and file systems. Such major restorations require proper timing and sequencing due to business priorities and file dependencies. The following is a plan for restoration or recovery of all files from regularly scheduled backups after a major outage has occurred. If you need to restore many, but not all of the files, you can use portions of this plan paying close attention to sequencing noted in the Schedule for Recovery/Restoration after a Major Outage and predecessors or dependencies listed in each individual recovery procedure.
<< Please fill in the current procedures for restoration of files after a major outage >>
The following table lists the recovery procedures that are included in the plan for restoration of files after a major outage. It also indicates the timeframe within which each restoration should occur, the priority or sequence of restorations, and who is responsible for each restoration.
Schedule for Recovery/Restoration after a Major Outage
The Recovery Log is used to track the actual executions of the following recovery procedures.
