Keeping an education system’s network environment running is complex and demanding, because education environments have the need to provide access to data and applications to faculty, staff and students — each with unique needs.
Think about it — nearly any loss of service will have a major impact on a school’s ability to function: registration, on-premises learning management systems and the usual suspects like directory services, email, print services, etc. Outages for any of these would bring a significant part of the educational institution to a halt.
In this book, we’ll show how to proactively develop your business continuity/disaster recovery (BCDR) plan, empowering IT to efficiently respond to a major loss of service (which we all generally refer to as the disaster) today, by:
- Defining the tiers of applications and services
- Having the required recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) in place
- Creating lists of system dependencies
- Testing to ensure your plan is more than just a theory
Gain confidence in your BCDR plan so you know that when (not if) disaster strikes, that you can save the day!
