    There are a lot of things to consider when planning an enterprise Perforce server  deployment. Two of those include High Availability and Disaster Recovery.

    When you think about your servers going down, your first instinct is probably to  think about how lost or corrupted data will be recovered. But before you even  begin to think about losing data, you should think about putting a plan in place to  quickly recover the systems when they go down. 

    In a Helix Enterprise environment, that plan must incorporate not only Helix P4D,  but also the other range of applications that are part of your solution, like Git  Fusion and GitSwarm.
