Disaster Recovery

As the university evolves, information technology plays a critical role in driving the university’s mission. Disaster recovery is a critical element to the success of information technology (IT) in any organization, but especially in a higher education institution where people live, work, and learn.

Through well-defined activities and resources, the Disaster Recovery Program provides Ohio State with the ability to protect the university's IT services and institutional data from the effects of a disaster. It allows the university to maintain, resume or restore mission-critical functions and operations following a disruption of IT services. When done well, disaster recovery reduces the loss of data, revenue, and reputation.

Disaster Recovery provides recovery assessment and consultation, coordination of disaster recovery representatives from across the university, and defines activities, strategies, processes, and solutions for recovery planning and testing.
