This testing and evaluation can only be conducted by the qualified IT person.
Examine the server and its associated program and ensure the recovery processes, both daily and remotely maintained multi-verson storage, are functioning correctly.
Then review the current Data Back-up and Recovery Plan described below, and ensure that it remains up-do-date and effective.
"Data Back-up and Recovery PlanAll school related data is stored on a central server in a locked room. The server is a Intel Xeon based machine running windows server2008 R2. The data protection can be grouped into two categories: 3 independent on-site backups, and 1 off-site backup. The server is powered by a UPS and utilizes user level authentication.
On-SiteThe initial mode of data protection is delivered through a hardware RAID 1 Mirror. The primary system backup mode is delivered by the server console which creates a system image daily and ports it to a password protected network drive. The secondary system is synchronous data replication to the password protected network drive.
Off-SiteThe disaster recovery plan would be implemented by recovering Langley Flying School's critical data that is synchronously transferred via the CrashPlan Pro service. CrashPlan Pro encrypts before transport. It uses 448-bit data encryption and 128-bit communication encryption."
