News and Announcements
In preparation for the County’s continuity of operations (COOP) exercise for the 2014 Great Utah ShakeOut, Information Services prepares to transport cartridge backups to the contracted disaster recovery site in Maryland. As part of I.S.’ biannual mainframe disaster recovery testing procedures, the mainframe systems are copied, transported to Maryland, installed on hardware at our alternate site in Maryland, and tested by the I.S. staff.
During the April 17th COOP exercise, some of the 14 County organizations participating in the exercise will be accessing their data from the alternate Maryland site, instead of the usual location in the County Government Center’s north building.
