- Routine tests (main site and backup site)
- Data retrieval performances
- Extraction strategy
- Extraction rate analysis for the data extraction requests received so far
- Backup performances
- Database backup and restore strategy

The audit report has been submitted to ESA.The conclusion of the audit is that a) both main and backup sites have convinced the auditor that EODAS has a serious and conscious awareness to both backup and system performance; b) EODAS has a scalable architecture and constantly monitor themselves, investigate improvement points and strive to stay in front of requirements.
