2. Broadly speaking, this Business Continuity option provides for the immediate recovery of services in a contingency situation. The instant availability of services distinguishes this option from what may be referred to as 'Hot Stand-by/Start', which typically will permit services to be recovered within 2 to 24 hours depending on the criticality of the business method they support. Depending on that business criticality, 'immediate' recovery may then vary from zero to 24 hours.

3. Previously called 'hot stand-by', provides for the immediate restoration of services following any irrecoverable incident. It is important to distinguish between the previous definition of `hot stand-by' and `immediate recovery'. Hot stand-by typically referred to availability of services within a short time-scale such as 2 or 4 hours whereas immediate recovery implies the instant availability of services.
