Mainframe Shared DASD Storage is designed for the highest availability and performance requirements. It is built on the most current disk technology and is based on a cache centric design that provides the fastest response times while sustaining large numbers of data transfers. Mainframe Shared DASD Storage is billed based on the number of tracks that have been allocated to CLIENT’s files.
- In the event of a disaster, restore the system using the most recent full volume backups that are available
- Maintain two (2) full volume disaster recovery tape copies of all mainframe disk storage for seven calendar days. One tape copy will be stored in the State Data Center and one copy will be stored offsite. ADOA-ASET cannot always create these copies when there is no update activity occurring to CLIENT’s data. Therefore, even though these copies will include files containing CLIENT’s data, ADOA-ASET cannot guarantee the files on these copies can be used for a successful recovery of CLIENT’S data.
