The purpose of this research project is to develop a deeper understanding into the criteria that is used to select an alternate location as a fail-over site for information technology infrastructure. This alternate site would be activated after loss of equipment or facilities at the primary location due to manmade disruption or natural disaster. The research conducted intends to develop the distance and geography requirements needed to provide a secure location to restore critical functions and provide continuity of operations for the New Hampshire Army National Guard Datacenter. This project will explore ideal and best case scenarios for alternate site considerations through the use of Graphical Information System database and research of critical infrastructure within New Hampshire. Constraints will be placed on alternate locations due to unique topographic and meteorological considerations and the requirement to position the secondary site at an appropriate National Guard facility.
