Recovery testing is about much more than simply verifying that data can be restored. It’s about making sure that workloads can be brought back online following a disaster.

Organizations should also consider orchestration as a tool for reducing the potential for human error. Even so, the recovery process can be surprisingly complex, and is unlikely to succeed unless the organization has taken the time to develop a comprehensive recovery plan.
