2Mobile Data Recovery Unit Takes Over the Parking Lot
SunGard’s Mobile MetroCenter mobile recovery unit is big when it’s fully deployed. There are push-out extenders on both sides of the trailer. Access stairs extend to the side and back, and the unit includes its own electrical power, communications and air conditioning. This trailer is self-leveling and extends its own hydraulic legs from the bottom of the trailer to hold it in place.

4Recovery Unit Encloses Versatile Office Space
The office doors open to reveal a crowded but serviceable office environment. The trailer can hold as many as 50 workers along with their respective computers. However, SunGard can reconfigure the interior to be anything from a training center to a bank branch. SunGard Vice President Haim Glickman said the emergency work space can be equipped with anything from cooking facilities to luxury rest rooms with valet service, although those would be installed in a separate building. Glickman said the cost of the mobile recovery unit is normally covered by a company’s business interruption insurance.

7Recovery Trailer Includes On-Board Generator
This is the power control center for the recovery unit. It handles the 200-amp capacity provided by the on-board generator, and it can be connected to commercial power supplies if they’re available. Located on the power panel is the security system that warns if someone tries to break into the trailer. Customers can choose their own security code.
8Space-Saving Workstations Designed for Ready Transport
Each of the flat-screen monitors in the mobile recovery unit is bolted to the wall and can be retracted against the wall when the trailer is collapsed for transport. The divisions in the desks allow the work surfaces to be folded down for transport. Underneath the desks are individual computers that are fastened to the floor using Velcro.

13Diesel Big Rig Ready to Roll With Plenty of Fuel
The tractor that pulls the mobile recovery unit is outfitted with large fuel tanks and on-board refueling equipment so that it can travel to a source of diesel fuel, fill up and return to refuel the generator on the mobile recovery unit. This apparently happens routinely, and the unit that was visiting the Washington area was refueled this way during its stay in the parking lot. This truck can support up to three drivers to ensure that there’s someone to drive the tractor-trailer to its destination as quickly as possible.
