  1. RMS ERCOT Disaster Recovery Workshop Follow-up ERCOT September 9, 2014

  2. Disaster Recovery Workshop ERCOT Follow-ups • Requirement: reduce the timeline from "event" to first notice giving "market awareness" to an ERCOT system issue.   What can ERCOT do to meet this requirement? • Work with COPS/CSWG on evaluating where COPMG may need similar communication requirements as RMS • Can MarkeTrak operate “standalone” without ERCOT’s registration system? • MarkeTrak functionality is largely “standalone” at this time • A change request has been submitted to include all functionality • What does it take to meet 12 hour recovery time objective? (event to systems ready) • What does it take to meet 6 hour recovery time objective? (event to systems ready)

  3. Retail/Commercial Systems – DR Capability • Capable of operating out of two data centers • Capable of a 5 minute data loss Recovery Point Objective (RPO) • Recovery Time Objective (RTO) • Moving ERCOT’s operations between data centers • ERCOT has historically committed to a 24 hour RTO of all Retail/Commercial systems • After a review of the current DR plan and processes, ERCOT will commit to a 12 hour RTO • Assumptions: • ERCOT’s alternate, or passive, data center is fully functional • The 12 hour RTO window starts with ERCOT’s first detection of an issue or incident that may require moving to the alternate data center • ERCOT may execute 1 planned site failover in the fall/winter of 2014

  4. Retail/Commercial Systems – DR Capability • Recovery Priority • Retail Services will normally be restored, or failed over, in a parallel fashion • Should prioritization be necessary, the following order will be followed

  5. Retail/Commercial Systems – DR Capability • 6 hour RTO would require additional costs • ERCOT would need to undertake a formal initiative to determine the scope of necessary changes/costs
