Disaster recovery plans have been challenged by their tests and measurements; however, they are achievable with a targeted confidence level. Typically, a disaster recovery (DR) test involves downtime that is disruptive and has a big impact on business operations. VMware IT's DR team formulated a set of key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure its DR confidence at various architectural layers (network, computing resources, core infrastructure platforms and business applications) based on different types of DR-related tasks that involve disaster recovery configurations, unit tests and integrated tests. Our business application categorization enables us to implement different DR plans and test strategies. This session will focus on the governance to enable frequent DR practices at different layers following different test strategies. We will also discuss a systematic way to keep the protected applications and their footprints up to date.
