Oakland deploys Motorola disaster recovery service

The City of Oakland, California, has selected Motorola Solutions’ PremierOne CAD disaster-recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) solution to help ensure the resilience of its computer-aided dispatch (CAD) operations.

In the event of a disaster that disrupts its on-premises CAD system, DRaaS will enable Oakland to have a fully functional CAD system in the cloud shortly after the agency reports the outage.

“Making the move to back up our on-premise CAD operations in the cloud was essential for us. Thus, the time spent working with Motorola Solutions to develop this DRaaS capability was time well spent,” said Andrew ‘Pete’ Peterson, Chief Information Officer, City of Oakland.

“PremierOne CAD’s cloud-based disaster recovery feature enables us to ensure geodiversity in our backup system, is cost-effective versus an expensive effort to duplicate our on-premise backup system and complements our city’s vision of moving applications to the cloud.

“Motorola Solutions’ expertise in public safety and the cloud will help make sure our CAD system works during a disaster — when it matters most.”

“We’re committed to ensuring that public safety operations are always up and running, but especially during a disaster — that’s non-negotiable,” said Andrew Sinclair, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Software Enterprise, Motorola Solutions.

“Because our disaster-recovery-as-a-service feature is hosted in the cloud, we are able to provide our customers with the secure, uncompromising resilience they need and the peace of mind they deserve, at a price they can afford.”

Oakland is the 14th major US jurisdiction in 2019 to have selected, deployed and/or upgraded to PremierOne.
