Chapter 5, Closing Case 1
“As we gradually took applications off the mainframe, we realized that we were incurring very high costs in maintaining underutilized mainframes at two different locations,” said Darko Dejanovic, VP and CTO of the Tribune.
“By moving from two locations to one, we’ve achieved several million dollars in cost savings. There’s no question that server consolidation was the right move for us.”
"One five-hour delay doesn't change the fact that this project has brought us significant cost savings and improved our system reliability for the long run.”

You are the new owner of a high-end newspaper company in Oklahoma during a very unpredictable tornado season. You have business units in 10 different physical locations over the state, and you notice the company is suffering high costs because of this. Money supply is low for the company, and there is no disaster recovery plan. Newly implemented server consolidation plans are in progress to a single, newly built location, and application migration is underway. Would you implement a disaster recovery plan with low money supply, and if yes what would you include in it? Hot sites? Cold sites? Backup and recovery media? Daily, hourly, or weekly backups?
