The ability for an organisation (enterprise) to operate continuously (its continuity) is deeply linked to the continuity of its supporting information system.

mydigitalstructure inherently has a number of mechanisms to ensure it is continuously available.

Based on your own information security needs, you can also build your own information continuity systems using mydigitalstructure methods within the ADMIN endpoint.

Periodically mydigitalstructure updates data state change history.  You can then use the CORE_DATA_TRACKING_SEARCH method to find out what has changed within your space and then using standard mydigitalstructure methods request the actual data.

You can do this when-and-how your risk management or master data management (MDM) system requires.


Periodic Backup

Check out the example starter node app on github...
  1. Get the last backup date and time using SETUP_SPACE_SETTINGS_SEARCH &DataTrackingLastBackupDate field.  If you want to do updates only from now, then use the current date.

  2. Run the CORE_DATA_TRACKING_SEARCH with modifieddate filter.  This will then return all data that has changed state since that date/time.

  3. Iterate through the returned list in step 2.  You can enhance performance by gathering state change for the same object type into a IN_LIST request and get the data for each object in bulk.

  4. Get the maximum modifieddate from CORE_DATA_TRACKING_SEARCH data and using SETUP_SPACE_SETTINGS_MANAGE update DataTrackingLastBackupDate to mydigitalstructure,cloud and/or save within your system.

  5. Save the data as per your continuity/risk management system.
mydigitalstructure uses the same method at a platform level to replicate the state of the system, core and space data into other regional zones for spaces that have opted in.


* using ordered modified dates

AU needs to be just like AU
AU is a follower of AU
AU Periodically introspectively updates the recent changes in its state. 
AU Periodically using the mydigitalstructure https/state-channel (sc) sends a request to get the recent changes* in state and stores locally. 
AU Using the most recent changes* (stored locally) it sends requests using the http/sc & standard mydigitalstructure methods to get & apply the state changes to itself.
