I didn't see the post from which this came from, but I'll assume that
the context of "graceful recovery" is to define bringing an IT system
back up after an event. It's related to "graceful exit".

While you may shudder at its use, that is one of those terms that is
completely understood by your geek-audience. Its a matter of knowing
how to explain something in their terms rather than terms that they'll
have to mentally translate.
