Backup Procedures
OIR will conduct backup procedures. These procedures consist of daily incremental backups and weekly total backups on the weekend. The back-up servers are Hitachi and EMC SANs. The process for Backing Up the data from OIR's South Data Center is to mirror the information at OIR's North Data Center, and then create a weekly backup tape that is currently stored by the Vendor: Iron Mountain Incorporated Iron Mountain Nashville 6005 Dana Way Nashville, TN 37013 800-899-4766
Disaster Recovery
OIR conducts disaster recovery. This procedure is a prioritized process of enabling critical and essential applications first and then continuing through the priority list to less significant applications. Disaster Recovery begins with the utilization of the OIR's North Data Center for both operations and data. If both OIR's South Data Center and OIR's North Data Center are out of operation, new operations will begin by acquiring appropriate hardware and software from a third party supplier, and restoring data from the offline tape backups stored with the current vendor: Iron Mountain Incorporated.
Data Migration Description
Data Migration will occur when support for the existing file format moves from Current to Twilight or Obsolete, or when software or hardware systems changes require the movement of RDA electronic data from a specified format to a different file format. Annual reviews will be conducted by the Treasury Records Officer and the Treasury IT Staff. In the event of system upgrade or replacements, plans will be created and executed to migrate all data and documents to the new platform.
