Business Continuity Services
BCS provides disaster recovery testing on all platforms managed by SEO and tests all University wide applications in order to certify that we can recover from any unforeseen event.
SEO provides the resources required to perform Business Continuity and works to improve the response to an event to quickly reestablish systems to create viable applications from our standby site located at 401 North Broad St. We work with Sungard and other vendors to test our systems on a bi-yearly testing cycle.
The best defense is still a good offense. That's why ISC makes business continuity a core part of its Data Center services. Working to identify industry standards, benchmark best practices, and negotiate with vendors to achieve economies of scale, ISC provides a comprehensive set of business continuity services to schools and departments that house their servers and LAN's in its Data Center. These valuable services reduce risks to administrative data, increase disaster preparedness, and enable mission-critical systems to continue in the event of disruptions ranging from insufficient backup, major hardware failures, and permanent damage to disk storage facilities, to the lack of facilities and forethought to test prepared plans of action before disaster strikes.
Business continuity services for servers located in the ISC Data Center include:
- Assisting in developing a business case
- Developing and implementing the business continuity plan
- Maintaining and testing the business continuity plan
For assistance in developing an IT business continuity and recovery plan for servers and LAN's housed in the ISC Data Center, call 215.898.4395.
