Things break and the DBA must be prepared for situations where a failure impacts the availability, integrity, or usability of a database. Reacting to failures and service disruptions is a key component of the DBA's job. This means ensuring that appropriate backups are taken for all your critical database objects.

But there are several different types and methods of performing recovery.

Developer enthusiasm is probably the strongest leading indicator of future deployments since developers, more than anyone else, get to decide what tech­nologies are used in an application.
