Disaster Recovery Test Template
Everyone knows it’s vital to test your IT Disaster Recovery, but how exactly should you do it?
What should you measure? What constitutes a successful recovery? What should you ask users to check for?
We created a simple, Disaster Recovery Test Template to help guide your testing and exercising.
Included in the template spreadsheet:
- Overview tab to add your servers and applications, set your recovery priority and objectives.
- Functional Testing tab – this is the testing your IT team does and is focussed on the technical specifics of recovery. Are servers accessible? Was the server recovered within the expected timeframe?
- User Acceptance Testing tab – this is the detailed testing your individual users will do to make sure they can access systems correctly applications behave as expected
Set your objectives, measure success and record lessons learned with the Disaster Recovery Test Template.
