Glossary of Terms: System Recovery
Definition: In computing, system recovery refers to the process of rebuilding a computer system or restoring data from a secondary source, such as an external hard drive. Because this process can require extended application downtime, mission-critical applications are typically protected with high availability clustering that automatically moves application operation to a different server until the primary system can be fully recovered or replaced.
