Natural and man-made disasters can completely destroy a database.
Describe a disaster that would require database recovery and discuss your thoughts on preparing for and recovering from that disaster.
You may use a disaster that you have read about in recent years, or you may describe a hypothetical, but possible, disaster. (150-300 words)
Respond to each discussion post below (50-150 words each)
I work for a government agency that has back ups for the back ups. I know of one disaster that happened and it did affect the network but did not stop the work that was being done. It was a severe snow storm that put strain on the generators that kept the computer servers cool. When that happened on of the back ups kicked in. What happened is all the data was sent to a remote site to continue the work so the mission would not stop. Once the storm had passed the data was passed back to main post and worked continued on. Going back to the discussion you have to have a back up for anything that might happen. I like to plan for the worse case at all times and hopefully it all works out.
From my military point of view we always try to have a plan for almost every outcome that there is when protecting our assets. Not to long ago information of millions of federal employees was obtain by people that had no business on having that information, all due to bad security of our information. The damage that this cause was huge mostly because some of the information was release and posted on websites were people can grab that information from and ultimately create false identities. Security of our data is super important both physically and on-line because attacks like this can happen. I was on that list so I will forever will be using services to monitor irregular activity on my accounts.
