Data Disaster Recovery

Information on the department’s disaster recovery plan

Reviewed 5/8/14 by Bil Hays

The department’s AFS backup tapes are stored on the other side of a fire wall from the main machine room, SN122, and our other backups are on spinning disks in SN122.  In the event of a disaster that destroys both the computers in SN122 and the contents of the backup tape room, we will replace the servers and restore data from off-site backups.  We do a separate set of full backups every two months, and we store these off campus.

Bil and Murray have backups off site of OSX and Ubuntu imaging systems respectively.
