Remembering the 2013 June flood; response, recovery and the road ahead - Information Technology

Resiliency has been a key focus for Information Technology (IT), and since June 2013, additional measures have been taken to protect technology assets and services. Heather Reed-Fenske, Manager of Innovation & Collaboration, speaks about IT's response and recovery to the June 2013 flood, and the road ahead.

Immediately post-flood, Information Technology moved many City sites on to The City’s new data network, Calgary City Net (CCN). Now, the data network core is spread out across the city, eliminating a single point of failure. Additionally, phones in the municipal complex were moved on to the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone switch, which provides higher levels of redundancy.
