Lights-Out Recovery Operations Management

Lights-out operations refers to the management of a remote (and largely unmanned) recovery data center through the use of remote management software. Active management of the recovery data center may be to support recovery plan exercising, or to orchestrate a postdisaster event operations recovery. A key requirement for lights-out operations is that remote management support must be uniformly supported across the heterogeneous computing, storage and network infrastructure components located at the remote recovery facility.
