CUSOs in Michigan and South Dakota have joined up to provide a crucial new data backup system to a credit union in Maine.
The $165 million Cumberland County FCU in Falmouth will have a mirrored copy of its core production server at Site Four LLC’s facility in Yankton, S.D., that will back up the 16,700-member credit union’s CU*BASE core processing system from CU*Answers in Grand Rapids, Mich., CU*Answers said.
CU*Answers said its staff will work with the credit union and Site Four to establish the data replication between the two servers and then monitor its synchronization remotely going forward.
The system redundancy arrangement with Site Four also adds a fourth data center option for CU*Answers clients, the CUSO said.
“For the past seven years we have worked closely with our in-house customer-owners to deploy high availability solutions and this project is another exciting step for our cuasterisk network,” said Scott Collins, CU*Answers vice president.
He said the CCFCU project is a modification of similar projects it has completed at nearly all of its self-processing credit union clients.
