Hardware Description
Strategic Technology Solutions (STS) managed File Server Storage for TDOT is on 4 Vmware servers. These servers consist of required computer and storage resources for the data housed.
Software Description
These servers run Windows Server 2012 Enterprise 64-bit R2 or later. The servers run the current version of SEP for virus protection. Avamar is the Enterprise backup solution.

Strategic Technology Solutions (STS) South Data Center hosts the servers that are utilized for the storage of the TDOT data managed by STS.
Backup Procedures
Strategic Technology Solutions (STS) will conduct backup procedures. These procedures consist of daily backups that are kept on the Data Domain for 31 days. These are then moved off to ECS and maintained as long-term storage.
Disaster Recovery
Strategic Technology Solutions (STS) 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 STS’s North Data Center for both operations and data. If both STS’s South Data Center and STS’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 backups.
