UK software provider CMS WebView has been awarded a contract to provide disaster recovery services to one of the world’s leading futures exchanges.
Under the terms of the contract, CMS will provide re-configuration scripts to enable the disaster recovery system to be switched to a remote site with minimum disruption. The scripts are also pre-tested for accuracy to limit the risk of human error, such as typing mistakes.
The disaster recovery software will employ CMS’s proprietary TDITM system. The TDITM system allows clients to run disaster recovery or secondary sites as live parallel environments that will automatically replace the outgoing production data feeds in the event of an emergency, with no manual intervention.
Lee Playford, CMS WebView’s Software Development Director, comments: As part of our ongoing development of TDITM we have invested heavily in providing services for clients that allow automatic linking between primary, secondary and/or disaster recovery locations. The automatic backup gives our clients peace of mind in the rare event of a major primary system problem, such as hardware failure, power failure or network failure.
