Scholars Portal does not have a live mirror site that can disseminate the repository's information in the event of data loss or corruption. For that reason, efforts to restore data from the tape backup may result in temporary service outages.
Scholars Portal and UTL's ITS department recognize that the implementation of live mirror site would provide an additional layer of security and ensure ongoing service in the event of a disaster.
