When a catastrophic event occurs, processes and activities that must be carried out in order to restore database performance are referred to as database disaster recovery. Various occurrences, such as fires, vandalism, cyberattacks, etc., can cause databases to crash or cease to function.
In general, hardware and software failure, external security threats, natural catastrophes, power outages, human mistake, and data leakage are the main causes of database disasters. You can guard against each of these primary causes using the appropriate database disaster recovery strategy.
Database outages may result from these occurrences. If the database isn't running, your organization's applications and services can stop functioning as planned. Organizations face a serious problem as a result of such situations. Data loss can also result from database failures and crashes. The modern world depends on data, so firms that lose data will suffer significant financial losses.
