TechNet Magazine article: data protection and the corporate jigsaw puzzle

My latest feature article for TechNet Magazine has just been published in the April edition.

It focuses on planning an HA/DR strategy within the confines of a larger corporate IT strategy, from multiple perspectives but really focusing on the IT manager role and how to interact both up (to business managers) and down (to DBAs). Although many of you reading my blog are in the latter category, this would be a great article to have your managers read – especially if you're having a hard time convincing them to take HA/DR seriously and/or conduct appropriate testing of an HA/DR strategy.
