JUNE 11, 2015, PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) – As part of the Naval Education and Training Professional Development Technology Center’s (NETPDTC) annual Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) test for the Saufley Data Center, some Navy-wide internet applications will be unavailable Saturday morning June 13 and Saturday morning June 27.
“It is very important that critical systems for the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) regularly exercise their ability to function properly at the COOP location,” said Charlie Tibbs, director of operations and infrastructure for NETPDTC. “The outages will be fairly short as systems transfer and remain active in Great Lakes, Illinois, and also as they return operations to the Saufley Data Center in Pensacola two weeks later.”
According to Robyn Baker, NETC Command Information Officer (CIO), COOP testing is vital for the training enterprise to function in case of outside interruptions.
“The data center services NETC training around the world and the annual tests verify that the systems will function properly at the COOP location in the event of a hurricane, disaster, or other emergency,” said Baker. “We’ve scheduled the transfers on weekends to minimize the impact to our customers.”
Applications which will be unavailable on June 13 and 27 include:
– Corporate Enterprise Training Activity Resource System (CeTARS)
– Fund Administration and Standardized Document Automation (FASTDATA)
– Navy e-Learning (NeL)
