—An emergency command system provides
indispensible support for the government to respond the
emergencies rapidly, efficiently and scientifically. If the
emergency command system is damaged or destroyed due to
different reasons such as natural disasters, the system cannot
work properly for serving the decision makers. Disaster
recovery requirement is very important for the information
system, and especially the emergency command system is
needed at those critical moments. This paper introduces a
disaster recovery methodology through establishing a cloud
service center in Guangdong province, China, aiming at the
protection of 21 city-level emergency command systems in
Guangdong. The ongoing implementation of the cloud service
center is described and several data disaster recovery
approaches prototypes are briefly explained.
