Accessing Data and Applications
Prevalence of universal connectivity.
Set up some computers and work space at the Disaster Recovery site, and allow majority of users to connect via VPN from home computers, laptops or remote sites. In effect, this approach extends the Disaster Recovery site worldwide if needed, and significantly improves the capability of businesses to integrate more employees into the Disaster Recovery Plan as needed
Failover of inbound communications needs to be carefully planned.
Will all inbound traffic be re-routed to the Disaster Recovery site, including email, remote access, web access, etc.? How will this be initiated and who will handle it? Will there be a separate access method to the Disaster Recovery site?
