RE: SYSSAV(Option 21) Media Options



fixed

Jerry,

As Paul has mentioned I will use Option#22 to save all but my customer data.
Mimix is not an option because it would cost money.
Thanks.
Rogers

Rogers,

I won't even pretend to know (or guess) what kind of security (and hoops) a bank must jump through. But...

Regarding option 2, how do you propose to run "Save The World" (aka #21) without saving customer data? And, if you did what possible good would this do you in a disaster recovery?

I used Sungard some years ago. At the time they were bonded; may have changed since then - but I doubt it. Sounds like the bank's best
(alternative) option is to become their own disaster recovery site. After all, how hard would it possibly be to set up, maintain, and implement one at, say, a branch as far away as possible from Hq? Then there's always Mimix or similar process.

Hello,

We are running V6.1.0 and have been backing up our system using Option #21 to physical tape media.
The tape is sent offsite each day for use at our remote disaster recovery site(Sungard).
This tape is used to recovery our full system at Sungard when a disaster is declared.
Now management has decided that they no longer want to send this tape offsite for recovery.
One reason is this backup tape has customer data from the application.

Here are options I think may be possible...
Option #1
Continue my daily option#21 but direct my backup to a Windows Server path on our network. If this is possible?
At remote site recover system reading the backup from the Windows Server.
May need to FTP backup file to remote site before starting recovery. If this is possible?
Option#2
Modify option#21 to not include any application data that has customer information.
Run backup directing it to either tape or DVD if it will fit.
This backup would go off site just once until changes to AS400 are made and would be used to recovery base system.
Along with the backup we would backup the security information daily using a Save File and FTP to remote site to be restored after the base restore is finished. This should provide a working system with all updates as it is being done now.

So what are the Pros/Cons for each option and are they doable?
Any other suggestions without spending money for hardware or software?

Thanks,
Rogers
