CompTIA Server+ 2009: Disaster Recovery
Established IT professionals who wish to acquire job skills and to be trained specifically to pass the CompTIA Server+ 2009 certification exam
There are no prerequisites for this course. However, a Comptia A+ certificate is recommended.
Without a well thought out plan in place, all the best equipment and well trained personnel in the world will be useless in the event of a disaster. Disasters can be manmade or natural, and both types can cause short delays or major business disruptions. This course covers backup strategies and archiving data, so that there are copies available in the case of a major breakdown of your information infrastructure. It also explains procedures for restoring data and discusses various types of backup, such as full, incremental, and differential along with the common media used for backup, such as hard disks and optical media. In addition, disaster planning and the implementation of a disaster recovery plan are both described.
The course maps to CompTIA’s Server+ exam, SK0-003, and covers the following exam objectives: 5.1 Compare and contrast backup and restoration methodologies, media types and concepts; 5.2 Given a scenario, compare and contrast the different types of replication methods; 5.3 Explain data retention and destruction concepts; and 5.4 Given a scenario, carry out the following basic steps of a disaster recovery plan.
Backup and Recovery Procedures
- identify reasons why you should backup and archive data
- distinguish between concepts related to data recovery
- match backup media types with their corresponding descriptions
- match terms related to backup strategies with their corresponding meanings
- match replication methods to examples of when they would be used
- recognize the characteristics of a disaster recovery plan
- design an appropriate disaster recovery plan for a given organization
