DR stands for Disaster Recovery. DR is the system that protects an IT System by creating a copy of data and system configuration which is stored in an alternate location to the main business premises. Executing a DR plan means an IT department can reproduce the whole IT operations it was intended to protect in a predefined time frame resulting in continuing business trading.

Backup is the process of storing a copied set of data in an alternative location or storage media. Backups can exist in backup sets which are snap shots of how data was stored at any historical time frame. Data recovery is when a backup set is accessed to restore lost or damaged data back to a production environment.
