Infrastructure

SOS has invested heavily in its facilities and network infrastructure. The data center infrastructure consists of two major components – duplication of servers and data and 2 high-speed internet backbones.

We have duplication of terminal servers and data servers. This means if one of our servers goes down, in a very short period of time we will have your organization back up and running on one of our other servers. The same applies to the data server.

We also have 2 high speed internet providers, so if one goes down we can very quickly switch over to the 2nd provider connection.

Excellent DR procedures

Data Storage

Once a week your mission-critical data will be completely backed up and stored off site on a 6 week rotation. Six times a week, your data will be incrementally backed up. After each 2 week period, each incremental tape will be overwritten.

SOS will verify that the backups have successfully completed the backup processes. Reporting of backup and restore process will be made available upon request. Request for a CD backup of your data is available at anytime for a fee of $150.00

Ability to add new files names, files systems and applications directories for backup. As your backup requirements grow, adjust your services to ensure new data is also backed up regularly.

Customers will be allowed 2 restores per month. Additional restores will be billed at $150 per event. To the extent that a restore is necessitated by an action caused by us (SOS) then no charge will apply and count will be charged against your allotted 2 restores.
