2 AGENDA Overview of business continuity and disaster recovery Primer of various business continuity and disaster recovery solutions Backup solutions and storage options High availability for hardware and applications Recovery options Scale recovery options to fit the size of the firm Overview of business continuity and disaster recovery Primer of various business continuity and disaster recovery solutions Backup solutions and storage options High availability for hardware and applications Recovery options Scale recovery options to fit the size of the firm

3 What do you have in place now?

4 Whats the difference? Business Continuity Planning –Process of developing advanced arrangements and procedures that enable an organization to respond to an event in such a manner that critical business functions continue without adverse interruption. (Proactive) Disaster Recovery Planning –Defines the resources, actions, tasks and data required to manage the business recovery process in the event of a business interruption. The plan is designed to assist in restoring the business process within the stated disaster recovery goals. (Prepares you to respond reactively) Business Continuity Planning –Process of developing advanced arrangements and procedures that enable an organization to respond to an event in such a manner that critical business functions continue without adverse interruption.

7 Various Solutions Hardware –Basic Non-redundant –Redundant (raid technology, hot swap disk drives, power supplies, etc) –High Availability (mirrored systems) Hardware –Basic Non-redundant –Redundant (raid technology, hot swap disk drives, power supplies, etc) –High Availability (mirrored systems)

8 Backup Solutions & Storage Options Tape –LTO (Linear Tape Open technology; Ultrium is a single-reel format targeted at users requiring ultra-high capacity backup, restore and archive capabilities. The Ultrium format enables manufacturers to develop products with up to 200GB of compressed capacity and deliver transfer rates from MBps) –SDLT (Super Digital Linear Tape with capacities up to 600 GB and transfer rates up to over 70 MBps ) –AIT (Advanced Intelligent Tape, 8mm format with capacities up to 500 GB and transfer rates up to over 24 MBps) –S-AIT (Super Advanced Intelligent Tape is a ½ inch format, 1 TB of compressed capacity and transfer rate of 78 MBps compressed) Tape –LTO (Linear Tape Open technology; Ultrium is a single-reel format targeted at users requiring ultra-high capacity backup, restore and archive capabilities.

13 Telecommunications and Data Communication Considerations Automatic or Manual Switchover –To re-route calls or data Multiple Vendors –To reduce total reliance on single vendor Multiple ISP Vendors –To prevent single point of failure of Internet services DSL –Provides an alternative to Frame or ATM Bi-Directional Ring Topology –Provides diverse and redundant routing Automatic or Manual Switchover –To re-route calls or data Multiple Vendors –To reduce total reliance on single vendor Multiple ISP Vendors –To prevent single point of failure of Internet services DSL –Provides an alternative to Frame or ATM Bi-Directional Ring Topology –Provides diverse and redundant routing

14 Telecommunications and Data Communication Considerations, cont. Other –Standardization and redundancy in network hardware at each border router location to enhance redundancy Options –Remote VPN –Wireless (make sure it is secure) –Microwave –Satellite Other –Standardization and redundancy in network hardware at each border router location to enhance redundancy Options –Remote VPN –Wireless (make sure it is secure) –Microwave –Satellite

15 Telecommunications and Data Communication Considerations, cont. Options –Pagers –Cell Phone –PDA Devices/Blackberries Options –Pagers –Cell Phone –PDA Devices/Blackberries

16 Recovery Options Nothing –You will certainly pay later In-house Solution –Must have capable personnel and access to applicable resources Reciprocal Agreement –A good solution for small to midsize firms that have good working relations with other firms Alternate Office – Will need to have the necessary resources in the alternate office to make it work Nothing –You will certainly pay later In-house Solution –Must have capable personnel and access to applicable resources Reciprocal Agreement –A good solution for small to midsize firms that have good working relations with other firms Alternate Office – Will need to have the necessary resources in the alternate office to make it work

17 Recovery Options, cont. Cold Site –Usually pay a monthly fee for the space, and you will need an agreement with a vendor to supply the equipment and have to staff the facility for the restoration Warm Site –You may need to provide some of the equipment, and may have to staff the facility for the restoration Hot Site –Expensive, but has multiple restoration options Cold Site –Usually pay a monthly fee for the space, and you will need an agreement with a vendor to supply the equipment and have to staff the facility for the restoration Warm Site –You may need to provide some of the equipment, and may have to staff the facility for the restoration Hot Site –Expensive, but has multiple restoration options

18 Recovery Options, cont. Co-location Mirrored Site –Replica of your systems in a facility that may or may not be owned by you –The provision of space for a firms telecommunications, network and/or computer equipment on the service provider's premises Co-location Mirrored Site –Replica of your systems in a facility that may or may not be owned by you –The provision of space for a firms telecommunications, network and/or computer equipment on the service provider's premises
