TECH SHOWCASE

a common error clients make
while planning for backup and
recovery. While the production
systems are clean and controlled,
he says the development and
test environments tend to be
messy and use valuable space.
When application programmers develop a new program,
for example, they create test
data. Because this data will
be changed by the application
during the test, programmers
create another copy from which
to recover and test again. Once
the testing is complete, all of
this test data remains stored.
Unless the developer complied
with the same standards used
to backup production systems,
this development data may never
be deleted. "It's imperative that
a backup plan extends to these
environments as well, even if to
just enforce the data life cycle,"
Batten explains.
To ensure all backups or migrations are happening when required
and the proper data lifecycle is
being enforced, Batten suggests
using automation tools available
for z Systems clients. According
to Batten, one of the biggest
challenges companies face while
developing a backup and recovery
plan is not being able to standardize and control their data.

Plan for the Worst
An effective backup and recovery
plan assumes nothing is safe from
failure: hardware, software and
even applications may contribute

to unplanned outages. Batten says
it's paramount clients understand
their data and how it relates to
achieving business continuity. He
suggests they try to identify all
possible scenarios when it comes

to data loss, and then ask themselves what steps they could take
to recover.
