Workforce Ready Reliability
Reliability, Backup/Disaster Recovery
Workforce Ready® is hosted in both our primary data center and separate disaster recovery facility, which ensures both the physical security of the data and a consistent uptime for the applications. Our data centers also undergo several certifications and complete a number of rigorous audits to ensure compliance and safeguarding of data.
The facility is designed so there is no single point of architecture failure. System operation is monitored 24x7x365 and includes N + 1 power redundancy, connectivity to multiple backbone providers, and variable switch load balancing. All new servers have hardened operating systems and are given vulnerability scans.
To ensure maximum uptime, the HVAC system maintains a consistent operating temperature and is powered by multiple 20-ton computer-room air conditioning units and three 100-ton chillers. Redundant power lines provide over 265 watts of power per square foot utilizing 2-megawatt transformers. In the event of a power outage, a 2-megawatt Caterpillar diesel generator provides full load in less than 10 seconds and can run for more than 24 hours without refueling. In the event of an emergency, time-guaranteed contracts with multiple diesel suppliers ensure uninterrupted service.
Kronos Workforce Ready leverages multiple levels of backup and failover protection, including a standby backup database and 24 hour behind backup at the primary data center as well as an off-site disaster recovery backup database. Full database backup is done weekly with incremental backups running daily.
