    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

I thought I’d just interrupt the regular flow of NetWorker commentary to recommend that you check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. (If you follow that link across to Amazon, you’ll be able to peruse some of the content of the book through Amazon’s nifty preview feature.)

The book distills much of my experiences with enterprise data protection and is focused on helping companies better understand the placement of backup within their environment, as well as getting an idea of procedures and policies that need to be in place to turn a backup solution into a backup system. This covers off a breadth of topics including, but not limited to:

  • Enterprise backup concepts overview
  • Roles of staff within the backup environment – not just IT staff!
  • Where backup fits within an environment
  • Total backup solutions – determining what should be backed up, and how
  • Recovery and disaster recovery guidelines and preparedness
  • How to test
  • Performance tuning guidelines and recommendations

If you’re after a bit more information on the book, you can also check out the accompanying site, Enterprise Systems Backup.

Regardless of which backup solution you use, you’ll find valuable information in the book.
