The new contract follows an earlier deal for related services with the same client. It was worth $30,000 and was first announced to shareholders in December 2005.
Under the terms of the new contract, CMS will provide re-configuration scripts to enable the disaster recovery system to be switched to a remote site with the minimum of disruption. The switch will be achieved and fully-tested during one weekend, ready to go live by Sunday evening. The scripts are also pre-tested for accuracy to limit the risk of human error, such as typing mistakes.
The disaster recovery software employs CMSâs proprietary TDIâ¢ system. One of the many benefits of TDIâ¢ is that it 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.
