This is a highly recommended book that will step you through the minefield of data protection and it will either affirm that you are doing it well, or give you some insights into how you cann improve.
This book should be in front of every IT manager and on the desk of every administrator, or consultant, who is involved in data protection!
Go buy it! It's your best insurance policy not to make a bad mistake!
This book will be especially useful to those individuals responsible for maintaining their backup environment but who do not have the time and/or experience to dive deeply into it. Your typical administrator will check for failures, re-run some jobs, and perform recoveries only when requested, and think they've covered their bases--only to discover one day that they can't recover that important file/database/server! Why? Because somewhere down the line (initial design, process, documentation, etc) there was a critical oversight, and proper (and regular!) testing was not done to suss out these deficiencies. More than anything, this book aims to get administrators to approach backup management/design with skepticism and with an eye towards empirical results, which it accomplishes with numerous examples and careful analysis. The technical details will, of course, be useful as well (especially for those administrators who don't have a lot of exposure to backup systems), but the tips/tricks and advice on how to properly design/manage your enterprise backup environment will be what sticks with you the longest.
A data protection insurance plan should also help business of all size continue operations during acts of nature, those caused by humans not to mention technology failures. Preston de Guise has written the definitive book from a practitioner perspective and a must read for anyone involved with protecting, preserving and service information systems.
The books flow and format is very well laid out appealing to different audiences from IT architects to those responsible for actually getting backup and restore accomplished in an efficient and effective manner. Don't let the title of Backup and Recovery fool you, there is much more packed into this ranging from debunking common data protection myths to establishing a strategy in addition of what to do when. There is plenty of how to topics covered as well as the strategy or reasoning of what to do when as well as why.
If you are involved with IT systems particular servers, storage, cloud, virtualization or data protection, this book should be on your book shelf.
