RTO in the event that a specific instance requires to be restored from backup

Emergency level of Service is to ensure our customers and their customers can use the Hornbill Services and applications with minimal disruption. To this end all Applications and databases will be restored however file attachments (Associated with Emails, Workspaces, Document manager or Requets) might not be available, search functionality will be limited.

Restoration of Key services will be to provide the customer with a fully working system and no difference than what they had before the DR plan was activated. All Applications, Databases, File Attachments and functionality restored.

Recovery to business as Normal would only ever be needed should a true Disaster occur. This would include the total loss of 1 or more data centers AND Hornbill offices at the same time. The Recovery to business as Normal would ensure that all Hornbill services (both customer facing and internal) were fully restored).
