Both the application and the MIS integrated database are compatible with Cloud and are stored in clusters on two different servers to ensure top performance and avoid any kind of interruption even in the case of ordinary maintenance. In order to protect all stored data, daily backups are carried out and data is accessible only from the internal system of the infrastructure.
Company IT architecture guarantees the highest security standards (eg. disaster recovery, business continuity) through a CloudIaaS infrastructure developed by IBM its subsidiary SOFTLAYER, and applies a "cloud-based" backup, resetting and filing of data. Data retrieval, through the SmartCloud Virtualized Server, is managed through remote access for preventive tests and ensures an exceptionally fast response with resetting times ranging from one to six hours, according to the data volume.
