replication systems
BDR Offsite Backup Synchronization and Storage
a) Domain will provide best effort to assist in replicating a copy of Supported Servers volume image data to its offsite
Domain hosted data center. This data is limited in capacity as to how much can be synced and stored offsite based on
budget, technology and bandwidth limitations. Domain will do its best to advise client in advance of when storage,
bandwidth or billing limitations may prevent or disrupt offsite storage.
BDR SYSTEM MANAGEMENT
The parties recognize that operating the BDR system requires regular supervision, maintenance, upgrades, and
research. Customer therefore agrees to appoint Domain Computer Services, Inc. as their BDR Management
Consultant. Customer understands that following the advice and instructions of Domain Computer Services, Inc. in regards
to the BDR system is necessary in order to maintain its’ integrity. Domain Computer Services, Inc. does not have authority
to make purchases of hardware or software for Customer unless approved by the Customer in advance. Domain Computer
Services, Inc. however also reserves the right to cancel coverage under this managed BDR agreement for all or some of the
BDR system if Customer does not follow its maintenance or upgrade recommendations.
Domain Computer Services, Inc. agrees to provide a team of engineers to manage the BDR system. This team will provide
best effort to manage this system in such a way that will ensure backups are running on a regular basis for each system
monitored. In addition, the team of engineers will be responsible for maintaining the offsite copy of the Client’s backup set.
Factors outside of Domain’s control such as synchronization backlogs, software or hardware failures, Internet outages, etc.
may impact Domain’s ability to ensure an up-to-date offsite copy of the data. Domain will provide best effort to identify any
such occurrences and notify client what steps may be needed to remediate.
SERVICES PROVIDED
Domain Computer Services, Inc. prides itself on being able to offer the absolute highest standards of service available in the
industry. The BDR solution can replace traditional tape backups and file backups with hard drive based images. Images are
capable of restoring a server to its original state within hours instead of days. Following is a list of services provided – all
included in the monthly flat-rate fee:
DEFINITIONS
1. The term “BDR system” as used in this Agreement refers to the hardware and supported software used for Backup and
Disaster Recovery purposes installed by Domain to provide BDR services
2. The term “Supported Servers” as used in this Agreement refers to the servers and volumes that are backed up by the BDR
system and requested to be synced offsite.
3. The term “Disaster Recovery Simulation” is defined as a test demonstrating the ability of the organization to recover.
4. The term “BDR Seed” is defined as the initial baseline image which is transferred offsite. Once the seed is transferred to the
offsite storage location it is then synchronized with the local copy on a nightly basis.
5. The term “BDR Reseed” is defined as the requirement to create a new baseline image for transfer offsite any time after the
initial BDR Seed. The most likely reason for this is a Synchronization backlog.
6. The term “Offsite synchronization” refers to the client’s transfer of local server images to an offsite Domain hosted BDR
datacenter. Storing the backups off-site allows the client to recover their data and/or server even if the original backups
become corrupted, lost, or otherwise unavailable.
7. The term “Offsite Storage” refers to amount of space measured in GB that is being utilized in Domain’s remote data center
8. The term “Offsite Storage Overage” refers to the amount of space measured in GB that is being utilized in Domain’s remote
data center in excess of the amount bundled into base monthly fee
9. The term “Synchronization backlog” is defined as a scenario that prevents the offsite data copy from staying current. Some
common examples that can effect off-site synchronization include:
Oversized image
Rapid data growth
Data moves from server to server OR from volume to volume
Changes in available bandwidth
Decreased synchronization window
Corrupted backups
Client will be notified of synchronization backlogs and be advised if a BDR Reseed is necessary to continue offsite backups.
10. The term “Synchronization Window” is defined as the available time during which offsite synchronization is permitted.
11. Liaison – contact person between Domain Computer Services, Inc. and Customer.
12. The term “corruption” is defined as errors in computer data that occur during writing, reading, storage, transmission, or
processing, which introduce unintended changes to the original data.
13. The term “local hardware failure” is defined as malfunction within the electronic circuits or electromechanical components
(i.e. disks) of a computer system residing at clients location
14. The term “major changes” is defined as a scenario where:
Computer hardware is modified
Upgrades to Operating System
Large amount of data is deleted, created or moved

of the Technology Systems mentioned above, but not less than that employed to protect its’ own proprietary
information.
d) Customer may not provide Administrator network access or passwords to any users or 3rd parties without first
receiving written permission from Domain Computer Services, Inc. Violation of this policy will release Domain
Computer Services, Inc. from any responsibility for the network or repair of damage under the scope of this
contract.
9. MAINTENANCE
Domain Computer Services, Inc. agrees to provide labor for maintenance services to attempt to correct any error reported
by Customer and determined by Domain Computer Services, Inc., in its’ sole discretion, to be in the BDR system & SECaaS
system for the term of this Agreement. Such services shall be provided in the most expeditious manner possible and at no
additional cost to the Customer if provided remotely. Maintenance is limited to software and hardware of the BDR system
itself. Other aspects of maintenance on servers or network such as software updates, antivirus protection, etc are the
responsibility of client and not included under this agreement however may be necessary to maintain a properly functioning
BDR system. If any work or changes are made to the Supported Servers Domain must be notified in advance so they can
plan and modify BDR System or SECaaS System configuration or monitoring alerts accordingly. If BDR system failures can
be attributed to work or changes by Customer then all time to restore BDR functionality will be billed hourly to the client. If
client cannot or will not assist Domain’s support staff in troubleshooting remotely then Customer will be billed for hourly
onsite support. Onsite maintenance will require Customer payment for travel time and expenses.

Server Test Restore – boot 1 virtual server hardware independent restore test image on a loaner server. Confirm OS boot
and data is available. This does not include testing for software functionality or services.
Disaster Recovery Simulation – During this test, the organization simulates a disaster so normal operations will not be
interrupted. Domain will restore a copy of your server to a standby server and make it available to client. Disaster scenario
should take into consideration the purpose of the test, objectives, type of test, timing, scheduling, duration, test participants,
assignments, constraints, assumptions, and test steps. Testing can include the notification procedures, temporary operating
procedures, and backup and recovery operations. It may not be practical or economically feasible to perform certain tasks
during a simulated test (e.g., extensive travel, moving equipment, eliminating voice or data communication).
