Backup (Computer Backup)

Data is the most important aspect of your computer. Computer hardware can fail, data can be corrupted, computers can be lost, stolen, or destroyed. You may be able to reinstall operating systems and applications, but your original data could be lost forever. Data backup software can help you protect and restore your data when something goes wrong. IS&T provides two service offerings at no charge to students, faculty, and staff for data backup:

  • Desktops and laptops: CrashPlan PROe
  • Enterprise servers: Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM)
