Business Continuity Recovery Services/Disaster Recovery (BCRS/DR)

ITS maintains infrastructure and delivers applications critical to the daily operation of the University of Connecticut.  ITS, in cooperation with our business partners, have established and successfully tested disaster recovery procedures for the following critical (Tier1) applications and services:

  • HuskyCT
  • Peoplesoft Student Administration
  • Kuali (KFS, Kuali Rice)
  • Aurora
  • NETID
  • Email

In an effort to streamline future recovery efforts and reduce the application recovery points, ITS has invested in Actifiohttp://www.actifio.com/enterprise/.  Actifio will replicate data electronically to a facility located in eastern Connecticut, enabling improvements in our recovery time objective from 48 hours to 24 hours.

Our current plan is located here:

ITS is constantly evaluating and modifying our BCRS/DR strategy to incorporate new technology and processes which ensure access to Tier 1 applications in the shortest amount of time.
