        What we have
Expanding real-time use of IT systems:
   Education
      On-line teaching and learning systems
             >10% and rising @ Algonquin College
      Enterprise support information (HR, pay, finance, student
       records)
   Hospitals:
      Access to lab result and patient records
      Enterprise support information
Singular data centres
   Several but applications only in that centre i.e., little to no
    dispersed of applications
   Physical redundancy scarce to non-existant
Most have one data centre with one IT entrance
RISKY BUSINESS!!

           What we need
Robust local environment (business resiliency)
   Network redundancy
   Critical “real-time” systems have “limited” redundancy
      On- or off-site
   UPS
   Emergency power
   Secure off-site back-up storage
Disaster recovery (business continuity)
   Suitable Facility (a true computer centre)
   Spare processing capacity (size TBD)
   Connectivity to the institutions
                                                 Slide # 12
The Future Possibilities
OttawaRAN provides cost-effective
connectivity
   Including Internet access
Members can share current space for
redundant or additional equipment
Members can jointly fund an alternate data
centre for business continuity
   Could be augmented with industry DR systems
