Introduction


How it works



The Disaster Recovery (DR) solution of Corepoint Integration Engine provides peace of mind should a natural disaster occur. The DR solution works in conjunction with Corepoint’s Assured Availability (A2) solution to provide complete coverage for outages. While A2 is targeted at isolated server problems such as operating system failures, a memory problem, or disk drive at capacity, the DR solution covers events which impact the entire data center.

Corepoint Health’s DR solution ensures that the DR site always has the latest updates to the configuration by allowing scheduled replications of the repository to the disaster recovery site. Whenever a disaster occurs the user simply restores the latest saved repository and starts the integration engine, allowing the DR site to exchange data as soon as the other applications are ready. Additionally, anytime significant changes are made to the production repository or a natural disaster is imminent, a manual unscheduled push from production can be made.

The DR solution includes a DR Face, which allows for custom configuration of the DR site. Ports and other items are likely not the same at a DR location, but the DR Face ensures that all these items can be pre-configured so Corepoint Integration Engine is waiting to be started once the disaster occurs. Corepoint’s DR solution can also be configured to simulate all applications that are not located at the disaster recovery site.

It is important for DR plans to have detailed documentation on set up of the DR site. Corepoint’s DR solution provides automated documentation of the applications and their connectivity. The report contains overall information about the system, along with details of the objects. The report shows the configuration for the production environment and the DR environment with differences highlighted.
