CU*NorthWest Enhances Disaster Recovery

CU*NorthWest, a CUSO located in Liberty Lake, Washington announced today it is substantially increasing its investment in disaster recovery facilities with enhanced high availability and communication redundancy.

Partnering with SiteFour, a newly formed CUSO in Yankton, SD, CU*NorthWest will move based production processing from its facility in Liberty Lake to the Yankton center.  CU*NorthWest will then house a complete redundancy solution for SiteFour with real time data replication and redundant communications to third party networks.

Partners within the network to include Services Center Credit Union and Mobile, AL based CUSO CU*SOUTH will come together to share production and high availability environments.  Both CU*NorthWest and CU*SOUTH have become owners in the SiteFour venture and will participate in the operation as both customers and resource providers.

Greg Smith, CEO of CU*NorthWest said, “This is just another example of our network of cooperatives working to improve the value for our collective clients through collaboration and joint investment.  Disaster recovery and business continuity plans will be greatly enhanced and clients will feel virtually no change in their invoice.”
