Governments, NGOs and International organisations must work together and contribute towards strategic disaster recovery planning process of countries. Emergency management plans should be in place and tested fully well ahead of any adverse situations. Quantification of probable risks and preparedness can save time, costs and most valuably, lives in the disaster response and recovery effort. ICT system infrastructures play a significant role in connecting various experts at disaster recovery centres around the world in a tactical environment. Virtualisation of disaster recovery centres can provide high availability and efficient system deployment strategy for any emergency management plan. This paper proposes a systematic virtualised infrastructure and associated tools for the operation of disaster recovery centres by capitalising the state-of-the-art for leveraging its use.
