Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager Product Evaluation Guidelines A Why Replication Across Cities is Mandatory If replication across multiple vaults, each in a different city, seems extreme, consider a recent history of disasters and what would have happened to a global organization that had a data center containing their sole password vault in an affected area. The human toll of each event is major, but in the following we focus on the physical effects: 1. 1995: Kobe earthquake – destroys thousands of buildings in Kobe, Japan. 2. 2003: Northeast blackout – power lost in much of Eastern and Midwest US and Canada for up to 24 hours in some areas. Telecommunications and other infrastructure disrupted. 3. 2004: Indonesian tsunami – destroys towns and villages on Indonesian, Thai, Indian and other coast- lines. 4. 2005: Hurricane Katrina – knocked out much of Louisiana and Mississippi. 5. 2008: Major earthquake in Szechuan – knocked out major infrastructure in Chengdu (a city of tens of millions). 6. 2010: Haiti earthquake – destroyed much of Port-au-prince and the country’s infrastructure. 7. 2011: Tohoku earthquake and subsequent meltdown at the Fukushima power plant – physically de- stroyed and made uninhabitable a large area in Northeast Japan. 8. 2011: New Zealand earthquake damages much of Christchurch. The point here is that major natural and man-made disasters happen somewhere in the world with some frequency and cannot be safely ignored as “infrequent” or “only happens somewhere else.” A robust system must be built with the assumption that a single data center may be destroyed or at least disconnected from power and/or telecommunications for at least a few hours and perhaps permanently.500, 1401 - 1 Street SE, Calgary AB Canada T2G 2J3 Tel: 1.403.233.0740 Fax: 1.403.233.0725 E-Mail: sales@Hitachi-ID.com File: /home/dawnm/hipam-poc-guidelines.texwww.Hitachi-ID.com Date: 2011-09-23
