Hi Tubaboraka,

The differences between a DR and BK:

Disaster Recovery:
It is a disaster recovery solution, it is a very complete process that guarantees data protection and recovery in the event of failures. Backup is part of recovery recovery, but it is only one of its components. Disaster recovery is a very complete solution since, in addition to copying the data, it also guarantees its efficient restoration in the event of natural disasters or infrastructure failures.
These types of solutions have the main objective of eliminating (or at least minimizing on a large scale) the downtime of a company due to failures.
Loss of data in a business can be fatal, even leading to bankruptcy. In addition, a company that sees its data exposed will have the need to regain its good image and regain trust among customers and other stakeholders.
Back Up:
A backup is a recovery system associated with a backup with which to rescue the state in which the company was at a specific point in time. It's like when you lose in a video game and start over where you saved the game.

Conclusion:
The main difference between a Backup and a Disaster recovery is that the Backup is only a part of the operations to return to normality, in this case, it is based on recovering stored files that have been compromised, but a good Disaster Recovery includes, in addition to the restoration of lost data, the recovery of other elements necessary for the normal operation of your business, such as servers, virtual machines, communication lines, high availability, etc., but all this, taking into account the maximum speed restitution of the company's operations.

Hello, dear!


Have a nice day!


Differences


  • Backup focuses on data availability.


  • Disaster recovery focuses on data security.


  • Backup is used to prevent logical faults from damaging the production system.


  • Disaster recovery is used to prevent physical faults from damaging the production system.


  • Generally, the RPO and RTO values of a disaster recovery system are smaller than those of a backup system.


Relations


  • Both disaster recovery and backup belong to data protection.


  • A backup system can also be used to construct some cost-effective disaster recovery solutions.


  • They complement each other.


Hope can help you!
