disaster recovery software

It can depend on the context, but the software works as an archaic and an in-vogue term. In the ’80s or ’90s, trending software were floppy disks and Microsoft Paint. Now, the software may tell the macOS Time Machine and Oculus Medium. A floppy disk remains software in the 2020s, but we have improved it to such an extent that it does not fit the current idea of software. Tangibility is not the hip thing these days, and the future could mean trading in your keyboard and mouse for a keyboard-less typing system if “look-ma-no-keyboard” catches on.

When Disaster Comes Knocking

History has a cycle. Some even say it repeats itself. Like  Cuvier’s catastrophism, saying things are changing feels like muffling a megaphone. No one can make out the details, and chances are, no one wants to strain to hear them. Disaster notoriously makes any sound it wants. Whether it creaks in its nascent stages is a matter of how well the people around it listen. Even when everything is correct, I say disaster may strike. Rather than throwing up our hands and declaring surrender, we like to plan for failure in advance.

Practice Your Strategies

StorageCraft, a software company’s blog by Author Casey Morgan. The blog details Google’s disaster preparation plans in which it attacks itself. The plan is known as DiRT (Disaster Recovery Testing). The trained and careful blow to its system  “involves everything from causing leaks in water pipes to staging protests to attempting to steal disks from the servers—whatever it takes to bring down the infrastructure.”  The attack is actual to anyone whose job is to prevent such a disaster, and the consequences are still more so.


However, the Site Reliability Engineers can stop the assault at any point before things get out of hand. I appreciate Google’s awareness of its fallibility. How many companies can say that they actively attempt to destroy themselves? Google is testing its disaster preparedness, so they do not have to initiate disaster recovery plans. Disaster recovery software is “a type of program used to facilitate the preventative planning and execution of catastrophic events that can severely damage a computer, network, or server,” as defined by techopedia.
