Out-of-State Disaster Recovery Site

Presented by: Brian Aasen, Kevin Phan, Ken Noone, Rita Schnepp – 2/2/15

Slide2

Pepperdine University is located in the Santa Monica mountains overlooking the beaches of Malibu, CA.

Slide3

This USGS earthquake map illustrates 1 of several reasons we selected Phoenix, Arizona for our DR site.

Slide4

Our Phoenix site, (pictured on the right), is in a multi-tenant data center which occupies 530,000 sq. ft.

Slide5

It is a tier III – certified data center offering these benefits:

Guaranteed 99.982 % availability

Dual-powered; dual-cooled facility

Multiple independent distribution paths to IT equipment

Concurrently maintainable infrastructure

Slide6

We currently have 2 connections to Phoenix: a private MPLS circuit & a public internet circuit.

Slide7

Our Malibu-based IT team tracks space & port availability in our Phoenix cabinets.

Slide8

Two groups play distinct roles in our disaster recovery policy.

The 1

st

group is our university’s

executive leadership

which determines

the priority data to be recovered

.

The

2

nd

group is our

IT department

which puts

the mechanisms in place to recover that data.

Slide9

This is a sampling of the data we are replicating to Phoenix:

Oracle databases

Exchange (EMAIL) data

Mission-critical network shares & files

DNS (Domain Name Services)

NOLIJ imaging data

Slide10

Our I.T. team uses these 3 automated mechanisms in recovering data:

“Replication”

“Testing”

“Recovery”

Slide11

We replicate, test, and recover our data using these 6 elements. They must exist on both sides: Malibu & Phoenix.

Slide12

The following slides further explain the 3 disaster recovery mechanisms we’ve been using:

“Replication”

“Testing”

“Recovery”

Slide13

The 1st mechanism, REPLICATION, copies data to Phoenix using SnapMirror™ technologies. We can do this non-disruptively.

Slide14

The 2nd mechanism, TESTING, activates a bubble network in Phoenix which allows Sys Admins to confirm successful transfer of replicated data. This is also non-disruptive.

Slide15

The 3rd mechanism, RECOVERY, activates a live, user-accessible network in Phoenix. Unlike REPLICATION & TESTING, RECOVERY is “disruptive.”

Slide16

These “TEST” and “RECOVERY” buttons launch the “testing” & “recovery” mechanisms from the GUI interface of the orchestrating software (SRM).

Slide17

This shows the GUI interface, (for the “orchestrating software”), of a live DNS

RECOVERY we performed on 12/9/14.

Slide18

This shows the successful results of our 12/9/14 RECOVERY with DNS servers “up & running” in Phoenix.

Slide19

Work in progress

We successfully completed automated

“testing”

on bubble networks for our Exchange Email servers.

We had partial success with

“recovery”

of Exchange Email servers in February, 2015.

From 2015-2016, we plan to further develop the public internet connection in Phoenix for user access in a disaster.
