datacenterWe’re continuing to implement our disaster recovery site in Tucson.  We’ve installed and tested the equipment and applications necessary to operate our Office of Vital Records Birth Production and Medical Marijuana Point of Sale systems from this alternate site.  Last week, we moved copies of the production databases to Tucson and upgraded the database versions.

This week, we moved copies of the production databases back to Phoenix.  The two databases are now synchronized so that if there’s a problem in one location, the application system and the databases will be made available on the alternate location with little downtime.

The success of this project is a direct result of the entire team’s diligence, dedication and attention to a host of details throughout the project lifecycle.  Several of our IT teammates put in extra effort for several weeks to pull things together.
