Online Backup and Disaster Recovery in Education
Business-critical data is referred to as such because without it, the organisation would struggle to operate. In education, this refers to more than financial stability; it refers to the developmental progress of students.
Schools, colleges and universities need to ensure they’re protected against data loss by backing up important data to a state where it’s easy to recover after a disaster.
Educational organisations typically store their critical data on servers running industry specific management software. Backing up that data and being able to restore it to an operational state not only supports the developmental progress of students, it’s critical in enabling tutors to teach effectively.
Online Backup or Disaster Recovery?
SecuriData has developed two services that protect critical data and enable a full recovery of the entire server in the event of a hardware failure.
- Online backup allows for a full restore of any selected files, folders and databases.
- Disaster recovery enables a full recovery of the production server with all operating system files, applications and data in a matter of minutes.
With SecuriData’s online backup service IT admin staff can protect students and tutors from data loss much more effectively. IT professionals can begin restoring files or databases immediately, safe in the knowledge that all backup files have been automatically tested against corruption by SecuriData’s industry leading online backup system.
For schools and universities looking to be able to recover quickly from total server failure, SecuriData’s disaster recovery service does just that. The SecuriData DR server (residing on-campus) will temporarily bring up a working “clone” of the failed production server so that your practice can continue to function as normal until new hardware is delivered.
At this point the “clone” production server can be migrated to the new hardware at a convenient time for the practice. Total server recovery can be to any previously selected point in time to allow a server roll-back to a point prior to a server data corruption or similar event.
