Disaster Recovery

Building realistic plans to get clients up and running

Disaster Recovery Planning

eDelta has unique experience in the field of disaster recovery. Founders of the company and several senior consultants survived the World Trade Center bombing and took with them critical lessons born of the real world. We have seen where many plans fell short of meeting their goals and where others completely missed the mark. Government regulations and common sense highlight the need for a solid Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP).

Each client engagement is unique, but eDelta approaches DRP projects with a systematic process of assessment, design and testing. Our consultants work with clients on:

Training and Awareness

  • Setting Scope and Objectives
  • Developing Scenarios
  • Escalation and Declaration
  • Data, Hardware and Software Backups
  • Alternate Telecommunications Capabilities
  • Operations Change Control Process
  • Systems Development Life Cycle
  • End-User Operations
  • Documentation
  • Command and Control Centers
  • Assembly Areas
  • Planned Rehearsals (Drills)
  • Personnel Safety (Evacuations)
  • Accounting For Personnel
  • Damage Mitigation
  • Notifications
  • Assessment, Escalation and Status Reporting
  • Personnel Skill Set Identification

DRP Procedures

Developing the right procedures and testing them is a critical part of the DRP process. Without detailed understanding of what should take place and when, employees with either not act at all or act incorrectly (potentially exacerbating an already difficult situation).

eDelta closely evaluates staffing and competencies and helps clients develop procedures that meet Recovery Time Objectives and Recovery Point Objectives. Our methodology takes into account:

  • Operations
  • Tech Support
  • DBA Group
  • Applications Support
  • Storage Management
  • Recovery Point Objectives
