Success Stories: Disaster Recovery for a Wholesale Distribution Company

Our client wanted us to create a Disaster Recovery Plan for their company.  Their major concern was "how do we know it will work?"  It's a valid question.  After extensive testing, we were able to:

  1. DR failover.  Failover from their Production Site to the Disaster Recovery Site.
  2. Replication Flow.  Reverse the replication flow from their Disaster Recovery Site to their Production Site.
  3. DR Site Active.  Run in their Disaster Recovery Site for a week.
  4. Fail Back.  Failed back from their Disaster Recovery Site back to their Production Site.

After this ultimate Disaster Recovery test was completed, they were absolutely convinced that they could recover and recover quickly.
