As you move toward a paperless office environment, more
of your valuable information is being stored
electronically. Documents, email, calendars and
accounting data need to be backed up regularly. With a
hosted solution from LSS, you can rest assured that your
data is well protected.
To protect data from general hardware failure, LSS
servers are configured with redundant disk arrays,
redundant power supplies, redundant power sources and
uninterruptable power supplies. If any one disk in an
array fails, if a power supply fails or an electrical
circuit trips, the system continues running with no
interruption in service and no loss of data. Failed
drives and power supplies can be replaced on the fly,
without ever downing the server.
In addition, each production server has a hot-spare
server on standby. Critical data is replicated between
the two servers on a near real time basis. If the
primary server crashes completely (which has never
happened to date), you will be able to log into the
standby server and resume work.
To protect against more serious problems, LSS utilizes a
sophisticated disk-to-disk and disk-to-tape backup
process. Each evening, during off-peak hours, entire
systems are backed up to a separate storage server. The
storage server is then backed up to tape cartridges that
are taken off-site daily.
Finally, and most importantly, LSS creates monthly
backups of your data which are then shipped directly to
you. You get a copy of your documents, your mailboxes
from Outlook/Exchange, your accounting and case
management data, and a copy of the LSS Law Office
Management System application. All are zipped,
encrypted and password protected. If anything
catastrophic ever happens, you can still access all of
your information from the last monthly backup.
