Administrative Computing and Telecommunications
Disaster Recovery


Summary

ACT is responsible for providing a cost-effective and practical disaster recovery plan.

Policy

We are working toward developing a plan for restoring critical administrative computing and telecommunication services in accordance with the requirements of our business partners. The plan will be reviewed by the appropriate business partner management and will be tested annually. Recovery activities will be in concert with campus and university-wide guidelines relating to disaster recovery and business continuance.


Scope

The plan will be limited to restoration of critical processing from ACT servers to the Campus backbone connection in the event of a localized disaster that affects the ACT computing infrastructure.

  • ACT Infrastructure Teams are responsible for the development, maintenance, and annual review of disaster recovery activities that would restore the computing infrastructure.
