Disaster Recovery Service

iSAMS Blog

At BETT this year we were delighted to see so many existing schools visit our stand to show their support. A high percentage of schools discussed backup procedures and Disaster Recovery. Nearly all of the iSAMS schools that we spoke to were unaware that iSAMS has a Disaster Recovery Service exclusively for your iSAMS application.

We felt that it would be of value to send this communication to all schools should you also wish to take advantage of this service. We do have several schools running this application but didn’t realise that the majority of schools were unaware of its existence.

The Disaster Recovery is £995 + VAT per annum. If you would like to purchase this service then please email sales@isams.com – upon receipt of your emailed order we will contact you to arrange the installation.

Disaster Recovery

The disaster recovery facility is a service provided by iSAMS which ensures that your system is securely backed up and restored quickly in the event of a hardware or software failure within the school. It provides the ultimate piece of mind and guarantees, even in the event of a major failure, that iSAMS can continue to run the school’s administration and academic procedures.

The service works by using a secure backup process that takes a copy of your school’s iSAMS SQL database and application server web space then uploads it to a secure facility in Northampton which is then replicated to a second secure site.

In the event of a hardware or infrastructure failure we can access the secure backups and we will have your iSAMS application running from a secure web address within four working hours. This means the school can continue to function even though the school may have suffered a major network or hardware failure. The secure web address stays “live” until the school is happy for the application to be returned the schools local network.
