After the tsunami, it's IT as usual in Chennai

Despite the devastation wrought by the tsunami that hit Chennai’s coastal regions, Indian companies that have set up disaster recovery sites or software operations in the metro continue to conduct business as before.

Indian newspapers reported that Birlasoft, which has a development centre in Chennai, has replicated data across multiple locations, including Chennai, Noida, and New Jersey in the US.

On a daily basis, data is consolidated from each development centre and stored at all disaster recovery (DR) centres. And, in case of a disaster affecting a particular centre, the data can be retrieved from other sites.

For instance, if disaster struck the Chennai centre, data could be accessed from Noida or New Jersey and vice-versa. Chennai-based Cognizant Technology Solutions also said that it was business as usual at its facility.

In another report, Wipro has said that it has no plans to move its backup facilities out of Chennai. The company has two backup facilities, one in Chennai and the other in Bangalore. The two facilities are used in maintaining its own corporate data as well as data belonging to its customer from company facilities across India.
