Data Center Backups
Luther Rice data is backed up to an onsite, large capacity, server. These local backups are then synchronized to off-site servers in Utah and Pennsylvania. Our servers are backedup hourly. It is noteworthy that the two offsite locations are located more than 1000 miles from our campus, on opposite ends of the United States.
Luther Rice is connected to the internet via high speed fiber optic circuit. In addition to our fiber optic interface, we also maintain a secondary high speed connection via copper. These two services are managed by a load balancer so that Luther Rice is always offering a high speed internet service to our students.
Luther Rice enjoys the security of a backup generator to ensure that power will keep flowing to our data center in the event of a power outage. The generator starts up within 2 seconds after a power failure and provides full power to the data center within 10 seconds. The data center also has a battery backup system that provides backup power in the event of a power outage AND a generator malfunction.
Luther Rice College & Seminary continues to operate on the cutting edge by offering theologically sound, biblically based, flexible, technologically advanced education to students in the U.S. and around the world.
