Backup Procedures
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.
Disaster Recovery
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
