UNCG has a reciprocal partnership with Appalachian State University to provide and receive hosting for remote Banner disaster recovery hot sites for both campuses. UNCG’s hot site provides baseline backup production services for the core Banner environment. We support our Banner hot site remotely using a virtual private network (VPN) connection over the NCREN state wide network. Annual disaster recovery testing is done in the spring. Each year a different module is tested in our ERP system. Tests have consistently met or exceeded client expectations. This solution allows UNCG to achieve recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) of less than 4 hours at a small fraction of the cost of traditional commercial disaster recovery solutions.
