Chapter Summary:
When a disaster happens, there are two categories of IT administrators. One says "it's okay, we have a backup," and the other says "oh #$%&*@!" This chapter will help put admins into the first category by combining what can go wrong and how that applies to the various backup methods, coupled with recovery tactics and solutions to real-world scenarios.
