Reciprocal Site Use Case – Disaster Recovery

Reciprocal Site Use Case – Disaster Recovery 150 150 CloudGovCo

A reciprocal or joint site could make business sense for two compatible organizations, such as within government. You would have to ensure and regularly test that there was reciprocal capacity.

In one instance we decided to test a client’s reciprocal arrangement and found that the client did not have the required security clearance to enter the reciprocal site. After this was resolved, we discovered there was insufficient capacity to load the backups.

The arrangement had been in place for years but no one had ever tested it in a disaster recovery exercise.

This use case has no cloud equivalent.
