Disaster Recovery Failover

Comments: 0  
Posted on Oct 31, 2016

Just wondering what other utilities do for DR - especially around test failovers. Our DR failover including round trip connection testing is about an hour. During this time we don't have any OMS/dispatching available. This is an issue when we want to do an annual DR test - our operators aren't able to be without bring able to see a single line/seeing off-normals/creating tags, etc for that long. To be clear, this is not an issue with normal windows patching as we use Oracle FSFO and the Intergraph A/B failover so our users don't even see a blip. I'm curious if our DR failover time is unusual and what feedback (or work arounds) you usually get from your control centers if you plan outages of an hour or more.
