the alternate site which can take a minimum RTO of 1 day. Also, the PCs need to be imaged
before using and phones need to be activated. If the company wants to, they can hire the vendor
to do this for additional charge. It should be mentioned in the contract. The vendors are
important for providing tables, chairs, laser printers, PC’s, phones, conference rooms, fax
machines, copiers, reception area, LAN servers for office/email applications, and external
custom applications. If the vendor is notified before, they can provide specific supplies and
equipment. The company should make sure that each work area has all equipment needed to
work. The company will pay a monthly fee of $25-35 for each employee seat. In this case, it is 4
seats. This strategy can help the company retain a low RTO.
II. Vendor/Internal Strategy: Document if you will use a vendor facility (external
strategy) to house your equipment or one of your internal locations (the latter is an
internal strategy). (Remember that this Company has multiple facilities in which you
may locate your hardware for your strategy if you choose an INTERNAL location.
NOTE: If you choose one of these facilities, you must DOCUMENT which facility
you will use and WHY you selected it.)
An external strategy is recommended for the work area recovery strategy.
III. Justify Vendor/Internal Strategy: Also, explain why you are selecting an internal or
external location, which means provide detailed justification.
An external strategy is recommended because it helps obtain required equipment at the remote
location at the time of disaster. This helps retain a low RTO. If the internal strategy was used, it
would require for the company to prepare equipment and systems before the time of disaster.
When using the external strategy, the vendor helps with PC’s being imagined, with additional
costs. This helps the company from wasting any time needed to get back online. The external
strategy is also recommended because just in case the vendor has a facility location far away,
having remote backup allows a reduction in travel time and cost.
6. EVALUATE STRATEGIES NOT RECOMMENDED AND STATE WHY
INAPPROPRIATE:
I. Evaluate Each Strategy NOT Recommended: Document the following for
each strategy NOT recommended:
The following strategies were not recommended.
Relocate to an internal alternate facility at your company:
o Relocation to one of the company’s alternate facility that is usually 75-100 miles
from the primary site.
o This strategy doesn’t require a monthly payment for the vendor’s facility.
o This strategy requires to have space reserved and available in the alternate
facility. If it’s not, a public space can be used. Sometimes they might allow other
departments to make room or move out depending on their RTO processes.
