We do not have a disaster recovery plan in place for our servers, network, and client computers.  A little info on what we are doing to backup data and then I would like some recomendations on what kind of a plan I should have and where I should begin.
We have all server VM's being backed up by VEEAM to a QNAP device off site. These include a file server where all of the users documents reside. This is done at 2 locations.   I have VEEAM replicate data back and forth between QNAPS at each location.  I also have an external usb drive attached to each QNAP that I swap out with 2 usb drives that are off site.  I do this weekly.  On top of the user's files being backed up on the file server I also have installed Carbonite backup which is running continuously on each computer in the company.
OK.  I know this is a huge question but I would like some guidance on what steps should be written down in case the server that hosts the VM's (I use VMWARE) crashes.
