Backups

Backup services are currently provided using Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) for data stored on College servers including but not limited to Samba, Zimbra, Banner, web, and imaging archives.TSM servers protect data from accidental deletion, and data corruption. In addition, TSM protection is an important component of the College's disaster recovery strategy. ITS is currently in the process of deploying an Enterprise desktop backup solution (CrashPlan) that provides unattended backup of computer data on college owned devices.  In addition, CrashPlan allows end-users or ITS staff to restore lost or corrupted data. Users are still encouraged to store critical files on Samba servers.
