8.3.4. Availability of Backups

When a disaster is declared, it is necessary to notify your off-site storage facility for two reasons:
  • To have the last backups brought to the backup site
  • To arrange regular backup pickup and dropoff to the backup site (in support of normal backups at the backup site)


In the event of a disaster, the last backups you have from your old data center are vitally important. Consider having copies made before anything else is done, with the originals going back off-site as soon as possible.
