âAs the custodian of the .eu top-level domain, we take our duty of maintaining the .eu registration systems very seriously. This yearâs business continuity exercise showed that our back-up systems are robust,â said Marc Van Wesemael, General Manager of EURid. âWe took this exercise beyond roll-playing and by doing so, actually tested EURidâs real-time capacity for disaster recovery.â
It is good business practice to anticipate worst-case scenarios. Yesterdayâs exercise prepared registry staff for what to do in the event of a real disaster and so reduced operational risk, allowing EURid to maintain a high level of service to its .eu accredited registrars. Registrars are crucial to the .eu registryâs core business â the registration of .eu domain names.
The exercise ran from 10.02 until 12.22 CEST. Following the completion of the exercise, all .eu systems came back online and registrars were able to register .eu domain names once again, proving that should disaster strike, EURid can continue its operations in a sustainable manner.
EURidâs 2011 business continuity exercise was externally audited by PriceWaterhouseCoopers.
