Q: Who Will Retrieve Data Stored Offsite?

Issue: Most companies have procedures for the offsite storage of mainframe data and have regular pickup schedules for the tapes. This isn’t always the case for telecommunications equipment.

Action: Make sure that your data is part of the daily collection and offsite archival process. Keep in mind that with any type of offsite storage facility, mobility could be a problem. If you happen to be on the West Coast, for example, it will be difficult to get anywhere after an earthquake if bridges are down, traffic lights don’t work, and there’s eight feet of glass in the street! Introduce these types of complications into your planning and your testing procedures.
