The Disaster Recovery project is taking place in two phases.
Phase I - Completed during the Summer of 2014.
ITS developed an on campus site that will house the new backup library that will significantly down size the space needed for the tape library.
In addition, one of the University’s core routers will be located in the new site, as well as redundant servers for the University web site etc.
The new tape library is in sync and the old tape library was decommissioned.
Phase II - In Progress
In spring 2016 YSU signed a “Disaster Recovery Co-location Memo of Understanding” with the University of Akron. ITS intends to install a mirror backup of critical data at the remote site and have it operational by December of 2016.
