Disaster Recovery Plan Template
A Disaster Recovery Plan (DR Plan) is a detailed document that contains an abundance of information about the IT operations of your organization. The DR Plan must present that information in a format that is easily consumable during an actual emergency. Evolve IP designed this template to help you capture and organize the critical information that will ensure that your organization’s IT operations are in a position to survive if a disaster transpires.
This template is meant as a guide only. You should review it carefully to determine whether it appropriately fits your needs and you should customize it to best meet your own requirements and goals.
Every business needs Disaster Recovery (DR). Backing up critical data, servers and applications should be a mandatory task for any organization, but many organizations don’t plan properly or use unreliable methods for DR. Our template will help you plan properly and organize the information you need into one document:
- Critical Systems Inventory
- DR Teams and Responsibilities
- Steps for Restoring IT Functionality
- Plan Testing and Maintenance

DO I REALLY NEED DISASTER RECOVERY?
Evolve IP’s recent survey found that one-third of companies have experienced a disaster that affected their business, with the leading cause of incidents and outages being hardware failure / server room issues (47 percent).
93% of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster.1
20% of small to medium businesses will suffer a major disaster causing loss of critical data every 5 years.2
Of those without a DRP, 80% that experience a significant data loss are likely to go out of business within one month.3
54% of organizations spend less than $50,000 annually on DR and BC.4
