DisasterRecoveryImageOver the next three weeks my team will be running a blog series with a new post each day covering Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity topics. We chose the topic of Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity because this is an absolute necessity in any IT shop and we want to help give you the information you need to have a successful plan in place.

We will cover topics including best practices for DR, our personal experiences in DR, and Microsoft technologies that are useful for DR. Here is the list of topics that I will update with the links as they publish.
