The UF Backup and Recovery Policy requires units to maintain written procedures for backup and recovery operations. Units may use this template as a starting point for developing those procedures.
UF policy does not dictate the RTO/RPO to be used, that is to be determined by each unit for their own data and systems, based upon business needs. UF also does not specify the technical mechanism for backup, although UFIT does provide some resources that can facilitate unit backups. Examples include the
File Serving which provides for configuration of snapshot backups, and the
Network Storage and Archive Management (NSAM) backup system.
