• What is High Availability (HA) Disaster Recovery (DR)?
    HA DR is the process of protecting and keeping data available or limiting downtime. Commercial organizations usually refer to this as DR, where Government organizations refer to this as Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) or Continuity of Government (COG).
  • Technical Consulting
    Contingent Systems is the result of bringing together a team of consultants who each have many years of experience working with Fortune 500 companies and large government agencies.
  • Project Management
    Quality Project Management is crucial to the success of a plan. An organization could have the most technical resources in the world, but if the goals and deliverables are not clear, the project is destined for failure.

High Availability

Contingent Systems understands that an organization is crippled without their data. Downtime can equate to loss of customers, delay in schedules, security risk, legal liability, and ultimately the loss of money. We have the skills to fulfill HA DR/COOP/COG solutions limiting and even eliminating downtime. The benefit of this type of solution is that the organization can continue to run despite the internal or external impacts to the primary network. The solution can be as simple as relocating data and applications locally or by directing them to an off-site location in a different city, state or country for a more secure solution. Once the impacted primary site is resolved, the data running at the secondary site can then be failed back over to the primary site, bringing the entire network environment back to its original state. Contingent Systems will listen to the organization’s needs and then provide a plan that meets those needs.

Technical Consulting

According to NIST, cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources, e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services, that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. .
In order to realize many of their efficiency, consolidation, and cost reduction goals, information technology organizations must maximize utilization of the assets they have available. Virtualization, through software, allows administrators to carve up physical resources such desktops, servers, and storage into logical units that can be provisioned independently.
A disaster recovery plan—sometimes referred to as a business continuity plan or business process contingency plan—describes how an organization will deal with potential disasters. Just as a disaster is an event that makes the continuation of normal functions impossible, a disaster recovery plan consists of the precautions taken to minimize the effects of a disaster and enable the organization to either maintain or quickly resume mission-critical functions.

A disaster recovery Information security has become a mission-critical function because of the ever-increasing importance and complexity of information systems and the constantly changing information security threat and risk environment.
