Resilience vs Recovery

 , updated on
Resilience and recovery are two approaches to preparing for an major adverse event such as a disaster that are relevant to business continuity and emergency management.
Resilience is the design of structures, facilities, infrastructure, equipment, processes and systems to be resistant to interruption. For example, an IT service that is deployed across a dozen geographically separated data centers with near real time data replication is generally more resilient than a service deployed on a single server.
Recovery is a plan and collection of resources that can be used to restore business functions if they are interrupted. For example, a data backup is a resource that can be used to recover an IT service.
