Maintaining Business Continuity and Recovery in the face of potential service-interrupting events (earthquakes, fires, or flood) is essential for high data availability and HIPAA compliance. HIPAA Vault’s service continuity is ensured with a highly redundant system, one where the failure of a single server, data center, or network connection will not result in downtime or loss of data.
HIPAA Vault’s customers are supported by a fully-redundant infrastructure, designed to assure maximum uptime of all systems. Off-site, system-level backups are replicated (on a regularly scheduled basis) to the HIPAA Vault offsite disaster recovery data center. This facility is geographically dispersed and a safe distance away from the primary data center for emergency recovery purposes. Backups for retrieving ePHI can therefore be restored by a remote backup server in the event that a disaster occurs at the primary hosting facility.
Offsite backups are standard with all our HIPAA Compliant hosting plans.
