Backup Procedures
Data stored on the Shared SQL server is replicated. For the Windows application server, currently, only standard file level backup services are offered. Every STS managed server performs a nightly incremental backup to a disk storage device and is replicated to the other datacenter upon completion. Incremental backups are performed every night of the week and are retained for 30 days at each site. On the last Friday of the calendar month, a full backup is taken of every server and that full backup image is kept on disk for 60 days at both datacenters. The full backup image is also duplicated to tape for long term storage at Iron Mountain for 7 years. The standard backup window for both incremental and full server backups is between 6pm and 6am central time.
Disaster Recovery
Servers must be back online and available within 48 hours. 24 hours is the maximum amount of data that can be lost in the event of a declared disaster. Servers recovered and available within 16 hours after Tier 3 recovery, with <60 minutes data loss from repurposed servers. Additional software licenses and application recovery assistance may be required from application vendors for disaster recovery environments. Check with your application vendors and determine if additional licenses and/or recovery services are needed and verify the cost of these licenses or services will be covered by approved funding. Depending on the Recovery Time and Recovery Point requirements and recovery methodology, it may be possible to transfer software licenses from the old servers to the new recovery servers but this should be verified with software vendors during planning and design to ensure compliance with vendor software licensing requirements.
Data Migration Description
Data is migrated according to system updates, upgrades, and server replacements. Data is stored in the Share-SQL database named Agriculture.
