-RTO is 2 hrs
-RPO is 30 minutes
-A database replication setup, to two sites is in place.One to our external DR site and the other is internal at the production site. Replication is half hourly and logs are forcefully applied to the DR site databases after every 30 minutes so that both sites can have up-to-date data.
Monitoring of this process is done in real time and any issues such us network failure are dealt with immediately.
-A monitoring system has been setup on all the database servers to capture their health check and status as at the time of the schedule run.
This is every day between 6:00 AM and at 3:00 PM. The health check is on storage information, captured system errors,running system processes and other noted system resources that warrant monitoring.
-IPSEC tunnels between CDSC and member firms. ESP-3DES-SHA Encryption and Authentication standards.
-MPLS Layer 3 VPN infrastructure providing failover to redundant links and the DR site
-Apart from replication set up mentioned in point 4 above which is our real
-time backup,we have configured and scheduled daily RMAN backup and data dumps of the most critical tables from our production database. The RMAN backup is done to an external location while the data dumps are stored internally for ease of access.
