Disaster Recovery Plan

Spring 2013

The University has acted on disaster recovery and business continuity over the past six years: our administrative systems have been upgraded to redundant service from IBM's Toronto and Montreal data centres, and our academic systems are redundantly provided from data centres on the North Campus and Enterprise Square (downtown).

Fall 2007

A major institutional IT liability is the lack of a Disaster Recovery Plan for both our administrative and academic information systems. In conjunction with IBM Global Services, we are formulating a disaster recovery plan for our administrative information systems. On the academic side, we are examining utilizing the Bay Building as a redundant computing centre for our academic information systems.
