Project Implementation Roadmap III. Strategy Selection Phase

1.

Risk

Strategy

Remarks

Loss of Short and Medium Fuse Applications

Reduce

High Availability – Build Business Continuity Center (BCC) and provide required systems for short and medium fuse apps. Disaster Recovery – Provide our DRC with the systems needed for top critical apps.

2.

Loss of Long Fuse Applications

Reduce

Spilt Capacity – Split the High performance environment (clusters) between ECC and the newly built corporate Data Center (CDC).
