What Makes a System Resilient?
Resiliency is the ability to spring back from and successfully adapt to adversity. In the case of IT Systems, this means building systems that will not go down if equipment fails, communication links fail or power fails.
Building Redundancy Into the System is a critical part of resilience.
Some examples of how redundancy is used:
- Servers with dual power supplies and mirrored hard drives
Internet links with multiple connections
- Applications - Critical applications and the resources needed to continue the operation of these applications is a major part of setting BC/DR Planning priorities.
- People - Personnel responsible for keeping critical operations running require backup to take over during an emergency or illness. Keeping these key people in the planning loop is essential to create a viable BC/DR Plan.
- Communications - Every office is linked to the outside world through communication service providers. The most common being the Internet and phone services. Selecting the best providers and creating the best solutions is critical for your business.
