Today’s #infosec Word of the Day #13 is
It is summer in most parts of the world but a warm site is not what you think it is. A warm site is a middle ground between two disaster recovery options, A Hot site 🌕 and a Cold site 🌑, in your Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP).
A hot site is a backup facility that represents a mirrored copy of the primary production center. A cold site represents the same work area, recovery space, and infrastructure support as a hot site, but they don’t function as a complete mirrored copy of the primary production center.
So the warm site is simply a backup facility with all of the primary production equipment without the actual data or information, a middle ground between hot and cold site.
