IT business continuity test on Saturday 8 December

Released on 2018-12-03 by: Søren Roug

 

EEA will be conducting a shutdown test of the servers in the computer room on Saturday 8 December. The reason is to be prepared to do an orderly emergency shutdown in case of e.g. loss of external power, water damage, hacking attacks or A/C failure.

The test starts in the morning and should take less than 2 hours, but to be safe, please don’t plan to use Eionet systems from 9:00 until 14:00 that Saturday.

Main objectives:

 

  • Graceful shut down of servers.
  • Restart of servers.
  • Find out how much time is necessary for server shutdown (important because of the limited time available from batteries (UPS) in case of an electricity outage.
  • Check if shutdown procedure needs improving.
