Few IT professionals take the time to learn what needs to be known to do disaster recovery well. Most labor under the pretense that good administration equals close to five-nines uptime.

Pro SharePoint 2010 Disaster Recovery and High Availability will take you through a step-by-step process to show how to build an awareness and reaction plan for the inevitable disaster that will strike your SharePoint deployment.

If you worry about what would happen to your organization if what is in your SharePoint farm was lost, this book is for you. It is a technical book, but parts of it are about the principles of good planning. Other parts are stories of how things have gone wrong (and right) in the field all of which should be instructive and entertaining for anyone who relies on any technology a great deal in their daily life.
