Recovery Dependencies

  • Extend Data Inventory to include items needed for recovery

    • Database.

      • Directory Structure (Location paths).

      • Database Backup (Checkpoint & Dump files).

      • Transaction data (Journal files).

      • Configuration data (Database Config file).

      • Potentially much, much more…

    • Application Source code

      • File system backup?

      • Changes since last backup?

  • Each dependency becomes a data item in the inventory

    • Not obvious ‘data’ items.

    • Do these things exist? (e.g. record of source code changes)

    • Are they backed up and how frequently?

What if..?

  • With the basic inventory complete we can begin the ‘What if?’ questions.

  • ‘What if I cannot access the current transaction data?’

    • Additional backup requirement identified (Ingres journals).

  • ‘What if I cannot recover my Database from the last tape Backup?’

    • Identifies the requirement to keep multiple tape backups.

  • ‘What if the application source code is lost?’

    • More frequent backups?

  • ‘What if the scope of the failure is more severe?’

    • Is your backup & recovery strategy integrated with your Disaster

Recovery / Business Continuity strategy?
