At this week’s Osage Beach Board of Alderman Meeting the board authorized the purchase of new backup and recovery software from Dell. The reason the new software was need was because the current software was outdated and insufficient to accomplish the backup necessary for full disaster recovery. The new software will allow the city IT staff to fully back up all of the data including the virtual servers. At the same meeting the board also approved the disposal of the city’s surplus property. The transportation department will now set up the sale of a Caterpillar Motor Grader and a DuraPatcher that have been deemed to have no use for the department or any other within the city.
