9780071409223: Disaster Proofing Information Systems: A Complete Methodology for Eliminating Single Points of Failure (Professional Telecom)

Nobody wants to shell out a lot of money for something they'll use once or, with any luck, never. But that's where most corporations find themselves today. Network managers see disaster recovery as outside their jurisdiction, and therefore as a competitor for system resources. External incentives to deploy disaster recovery from customers and partners may be pressing, but internal incentives are working against them.This book provides a methodology responsive to those problems. With careful planning, it can actually improve system performance instead of encumbering it. Even if your organization isn't budgeted for disaster recovery planning, you can implement this methodology now, at minimum cost, and reap immediate returns. For companies already invested in system protection software, Buchanan shows network managers how to get started on impact and risk assessment, protection planning, policymaking, and more.

About the Author:

Robert W. Buchanan, Jr. is president and CEO of Shiloh Network Solutions (SNS), a start-up software company developing a new generation of proactive network analysis tools for clustered systems within the enterprise and Internet market. Prior to SNS, Mr. Buchanan was the managing partner in Shiloh Consulting, an independent network consulting company that provides network and e-business planning, management, and testing services to product manufacturers and Fortune 500 companies. He also served 4 years as Sr. Vice President, General manager, and COO at LANQuest Labs, a network consulting company and independent test lab. During his tenure there, he was responsible for the development of new network testing procedures and several QA and performance testing products under contract with companies such as Intel, Cisco Systems and 3Com Corporation. Before LANQuest, Mr. Buchanan spent 7 years in software product management and marketing at 3Com Corporation where he was responsible for the EtherSeries and 3X network operating systems. Mr. Buchanan also has experience managing technical organizations: at ROLM he managed software development and computer operations, and at Lockheed Corporation he managed advanced development groups of engineers in a large IT organization.

In February 1997 Mr. Buchanan second book, Measuring the Impact of Your Web Site, was released. This book was well received and has been translated into both Kanji and Dutch. His first book, The Art of Testing Network Systems, was published in 1996, and remains popular today. He is currently working on a fourth book for 2003 on performance tuning clustered server configurations. Mr. Buchanan has written many articles for networking journals including LAN Magazine, Network World, CNEPA Journal, and Network Expo. He has spoken and taught at Interop, Networld, Network and PC Expos, and Comdex. He also teaches IT courses at the University of Phoenix.

From the Back Cover:

Does Your Business Continuity Plan Rely on Prevention or Cure?

In today's communications-dependent business world, disaster may come in the guise of an act of God, or an act of war. It may also come in the form of such unremarkable events as ISP problems, server outages, systems changes, network glitches, or routine upgrades. With a little bad luck, any one of these can trigger a single point of failure for a major problem.

Increasingly, companies are looking for a more proactive approach to disaster management than traditional disaster recovery can provide. It's time, as Rick Devenuti suggests in his foreword, to change our thinking about preparedness. Disaster-Proofing Information Systems:
* Provides a methodology for underwriting business continuity through end-to-end availability and resource distribution
* Takes a close look at best practices and available products and tools for colocated, fault-tolerant systems
* Illustrates how all components of a disaster avoidance implementation can carry their own weight on a daily basis, unlike traditional disaster recovery cost allocations

END-TO-END DISASTER MANAGEMENT FOR YOUR:
* databases
* applications
* servers
* infrastructure
* Internet links
* workstations
* remote users
* personnel
* facilities

"This book utilitizes [today's new system capabilities] through a method called SHARED that integrates high availability with disaster avoidance to provide systems that are highly redundant and tolerant of disaster in whatever form it occurs. It will help you chart a course toward systems that avoid the need for disaster recovery...and provide other operational benefits in the areas of performance, reliability, and maintainability." -- Richard R. Devenuti, CIO, Microsoft Corporation
