The Illinois Fidlar eByte: May 2017

We are proud to announce that the Crawford County Recorder’s Office has implemented Fidlar’s Replication services. The service allows for the Official Public Record to be stored off-site in a secured Telco-Grade facility. In the event of an unrecoverable disaster, this data can be used to get the office going again. Additionally, constituents utilizing search tools such as Laredo and Tapestry will access this replicated data which alleviates the usage of a county’s internal servers. Replication ensures the Official Public Record remains searchable even in the event of a disaster at the county.



“In December of last year our server went down. Upon inspection, IT discovered that two of the three drives had been damaged. Ultimately, the server was repaired, but of course we lost everything on it. We had stopped printing out hard copies of recorded documents at the end of 2014. When we tried to restore from our backups, we learned that a previous Clerk only backed up email, not the recorded images. If it had not been for Replication, we would have lost two years of images! Replication saved us and is well worth the expense!” – Fayrene Wright, Crawford County Recorder
