[PLUG] correct way to do this in bash

Currently for my research I have a process that writes 24 hours and 5
days a week.  Its writes to standard out and there is standard error.
There is a lot of data, close to 300Gb a day therefore I can't lose a
minute of outage.

I am capturing daily reports and cutoff is at 8:00AM.

process > /phys/data/20090922/20090922.crac.out

At 7:59AM I kill the process using cron and restart the process at
8:00AM everyday for 5 days using cron. I lose 1 min of simulation data

Is there a clever way to have my process run or restart at 8:00AM
without cron and no interruption? Or is this the preferred way?
