VG Tuesday Tips: DR Testing - Why and How to Accomplish the Most Boring Thing That Will Save Your Ass(ets)

Testing take resources. Unless you have adopted a backup strategy with built-in automated testing capabilities (like Unitrends), testing backups requires resources, both personnel and compute. To complete testing, you need separate testing hardware, or a quick-spin-up testing lab.

Then you need to assign an employee to run the tests and validate the results. All this can add up to a significant financial investment that doesn’t impact the bottom line.
