Disaster recovery policies

From UA Libraries Digital Services Planning and Documentation

We developed our policies based on 6 potential scenarios, each with a different level of damage.

For each scenario, we mapped out:

  1. What to do
  2. Who is responsible for the tasks
  3. Who are the back up contacts for the tasks

The 6 scenarios are as follows:

Scenario 1: software loss (such as Acumen).

Scenario 2: we lose all delivery content (such as derivatives, descriptive metadata; everything in Acumen)

Scenario 3: we lose everything on the UA Libraries share drive.

Scenario 4: partial loss of archival files with no backups.

Scenario 5: total loss of archival files with only ADPNet content available for restoration.

Scenario 6: total loss of archival files and all backups.
