Updates and disaster recovery

Abstract

Introduction to updating the operating system and handling disaster recovery for Sitecore installations.

We recommend that you always use that latest release of Microsoft Windows supported by Sitecore and that you keep Windows updated with the relevant security patches. Use the Windows Update/Automatic Update service to keep your computers updated.

We also recommend that you create a disaster recovery plan that includes:

  • A plan for acquiring new or temporary equipment.

  • A plan for restoring backups.

  • Testing the recovery plan.
