Disaster Recovery

In 2001, CPR entered into a partnership with SunGard. CPR wanted to provide a way to help their members securely manage their data for a very low expense. SunGard offers CPR members data hosting services and 24 X 7 monitoring. SunGard takes care of managing the server hardware so members are assured that their data is always running on the latest technology with advanced processors, memory and data storage for hardware. They also take care of the operating system and database management software applying new patches when they come out and fully test all patches before deploying them to the servers. SunGard also performs nightly back-ups as well as any data restoration that may be required.

Disaster Recovery is a second area of expertise and service SunGard supplies CPR members. How good are your disaster recovery plans? Click here to read more about CPR's Disaster Recovery.

CPR Due Diligence

We explored several companies that host data as their Core Competency jobs and decided to retain the relationship we have had established with SunGard since December 2001. They have an excellent reputation and are committed to CPR and our members. We have verified their safety, security and competence through a physical inspection of their facilities as well as through careful monitoring of their quality of service. To see more of the roles and responsibilities of SunGard, click here.

What are the costs involved?

We have been able to secure these services at a very low cost to our members who would like to take advantage of this data hosting service. There will be monthly recurring costs and a few one-time charges. CPR will be able to provide the exact costs to your agency once we have established the level of interest among the members for this service.
