English term or phrase:Cold Site
Contexto:" 5. A decision is then made whether to use the Cold Site, a location some distance away from the scene of the disaster where computing and networking capabilities can be temporarily restored until the primary site is ready."
Se trata de un texto de computción,"disaster recovery".
Explanation: A backup facility that has been equipped with communications gear, computer cables and air conditioning, so that it is possible to install computers quickly in case of disaster at the primary site.
Contexte(s): Cold sites are a low cost option, with no high maintenance costs such as those associated with keeping a hot site in synchronisation with the main computing facility. The disadvantage is the long time that it takes to equip and staff the site if it has to be used. Testing is a problem, and probably impractical. Good for second level backup or for a business not very reliant on computers.
