All images reside on a SQL (structured query language) back-end with the database housed on a Storage Area Network, which is replicated in real-time to the agency's DR (disaster recovery) warm-site located at S8RA Field office in Madison, TN.
Microsoft SharePoint platform using Knowledge Lake -a document imaging, document capture and workflow solution designed specifically for Microsoft SharePoint.

THDA's data protection routine consists of differential backups each Monday-Thursday, and full application and data backups performed each Friday. Two backup sets are created daily using the disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T) methodology. The first backup set is stored on a SAS (serial attached scsi) direct-attached disk array (disk-to-disk) and the second is a duplication of the first set to a tape library equipped with dual LTO-5 (linear tape open) drives (disk-to-tape). The Information Technology department retains the disk-based copy for a period of one month, and the tapes are transported offsite daily by a third party, Iron Mountain. Additionally, THDA employs a one month tape rotation schedule to correspond with THDA's business processes. An end-of-month full backup set is also archived at Iron Mountain facilities for a period of 12 months.
THDA's IT division employs a Certified Business Continuity Specialist who maintains and executes the agency's Business Continuity Plan, which has been established and in place since 2008.
Data Migration Description
Overseen and conducted by THDA according to the agency's Business Continuity Plan.
Records Management Division (RMD)
It appears that program is no longer generating records, and is therefore, inactive. Please spell out any acronyms. Disposition Notes do not describe record disposition. Media Formats are inconsistent. Please specify if records are paper, electronic, or both - and describe.

TSLA concurs with RMD comments.
