The paper "Copying and Recovering Organizational Data Resourcefully" is a worthy example of a case study on information technology. The backup of data entails a strategic approach towards achieving a methodical utilized in copying and eventually recovering organizational data resourcefully. The business in this case scenario would require an upgrade on the current system. This would, in the long run, ensure the business organization's data is accessible on a day-to-day and functional basis. The back solution criteria after an assessment review comprise of the following activities: Equipment RecommendedServers (Backup Systems)These devices can involve the addition of storage space preferably off the business premises in other locations to minimize the risk of catastrophe.
Storage space entails disks that offer faster access and recovery of data. The data storage locations or Servers would have an upgrade, for instance, new Cisco Servers: Server Room: Server 1: 50GB – upgrade to 1 TerabyteServer Room: Server 2: 100GB – upgrade to 2 TerabyteAccounting Dept. : Server 3: 10GB – upgrade to 500GBThe approximated pricing for acquisition and installation of storage disks amounts to $ 2000 in expenses for the business Backup Software Backup software, for example, advanced SQL and DBMS offers or ensure the protection of critical data regardless if it is positioned in virtual or physical environments.
Exceptional software provides continuous data protection (CDP) for both databases and file servers. Estimated software acquisition and installation costs - $ 800 Network CablesProvide connection links between multiple and different devices within the network. Let us say, for example, Ethernet cables. Estimated cabling costs - $ 500. Strong or Stable InternetA stable uplink and downlink for the network have to be established so as to facilitate and factoring the future increase in traffic.
Therefore, increasing internet bandwidth would be advantageous. Estimated Internet bandwidth increase (12 Mbps) subscription costs - $ 500Location of the Equipment in the NetworkThe location of the equipment within the network would be decentralized for the backup servers where some of the storage devices will be placed on the premises to reduce the risk for data loss via theft or natural catastrophes like storms. The network system will be appropriately configured with a dedicated bandwidth of 12 Mbps form the ISP while following all the configuration protocols for all the network layers before deployment.
Backup media UtilizedThe media utilized in accomplishing the system upgrade majorly involve the introduction of new servers that are to offer additional hosting space for the company data. The system hardware and software used to offer data de-duplication which decreases redundancy and saves energy and storage costs. Backup scheduleConducted between 10.00 PM to 6.00 AM the following day for all working days. Backup and restore procedureThe Company Data is initially backed up on the respective backup devices and systems both on the site and off-site servers. The data restoration is achieved either by moving the data physically on tapes or portable (removable) hard drives to another location electronically.
This is only done in the event of authorization and validation of the system user in the system staff database. The data can then be replicated to a satellite location or cloud partner.
