Disaster recovery plan

Sometimes it’s not technically or physically feasible to conduct a complete real-world test of a disaster recovery plan.1. Describe a recovery that would not be feasible to test with a real-world test. Include the reason(s) that the real-world test could not be done. 2. Elaborate on the steps and processes you would have to do to try to insure that your recovery plan would work in the event of a disaster.

Assignment 1: Disaster Recovery PlanDue Week 6 and worth 120 points

You are an administrator for the Contoso Corporation. The Contoso Corporation has two (2) large sites. The corporate office is in New York and the manufacturing site is in Cleveland, Ohio. In addition, the Contoso Corporation has five (5) smaller sites. 

At the Corporate site, you currently have eight (8) physical Hyper-V hosts that host approximately one hundred twenty (120) virtual machines. The virtual machines are running Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012. The servers are needed to host email, various databases, file services, print services, and a point-of sales-application. The virtual machines are stored on a centrally located storage area network (SAN) that has multiple power supplies, and use redundant array of independent disks (RAID).

Over the last three (3) years, you have had two (2) power failures that caused the servers to go down at the corporate office. Recently, during one (1) of these incidents, files on one (1) of the servers were corrupted. It was later discovered that the backup could only partially restore the data files, but could not restore the server itself.

The servers must remain available and reliable. As the administrator, you must ensure that you can recover from a failure or problem quickly with minimum loss. 

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Develop a continuity plan / disaster recovery plan for Contoso Corporation in which you address the following:
    1. Suggest an approach that provides redundancy (failover) for all mission critical functions in the event of a disaster including power failure. Consider the following in your approach: Essential Infrastructure; Email; Database; File Services; Print Services; Point-of-Sale Applications; Power Redundancy Solutions.
    2. Identify the changes that should be made to the backup procedures in order to address the problem with the server backups.
    3. Outline the necessary actions that Server Administrators must verify for proper operation of servers in the event of a failover.
    4. Provide a plan for returning all services back to the primary systems once the crisis has passed.
    5. Examine the pros and cons of moving part of the data center to the Cleveland office and housing it there on a permanent basis. Provide your recommendation for the stated action. 

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Demonstrate the ability to describe, manage, and configure load balancing and failover clustering.
  • Demonstrate the ability to configure and manage backups to include role-specific and online or cloud environments.
  • Demonstrate the ability to recover servers to include files and volumes.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in advanced network infrastructure environments.
  • Write clearly and concisely about advanced network infrastructure topics using proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions

“Disaster Recovery Plan”

“Disaster Recovery Plan”  Please respond to the following:

  • See attachment to read the Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP). Next, explain its relationship to MIT’s BCP from the previous week’s discussion see attachment. Then, based on the established relationship, assess whether or not there is anything missing from the DRP. Provide a rationale for your response.

Disaster Recovery Plan

lass – Please select a Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) for any selected scenario. You can choose any organization’s plan or create your own.

1. Describe the key elements of the Disaster Recovery Plan to be used in case of a disaster and the plan for testing the DRP.

2. Briefly discuss the internal, external, and environmental risks, which might be likely to affect the business and result in loss of the facility, loss of life, or loss of assets. Threats could include weather, fire or chemical, earth movement, structural failure, energy, biological, or human.

3. Of the strategies of shared-site agreements, alternate sites, hot sites, cold sites, and warm sites, identify which of these recovery strategies is most appropriate for your selected scenario and why.

4. For each testing method listed, briefly describe each method and your rationale for why it will or will not be included in your DRP test plan.

• Include at least Eight (8) reputable sources.
• Your final paper should be 1,000-to-1,250-words, and written in APA Style
