The long school holidays are here - are you stressed about backups?


Schools now run on technology. For some this is unwelcome and disturbing, for others it's inevitable and an enabling force. But all agree that technology has become central to the learning process, largely replacing pen and paper for students, teachers and administrators.  So are you able to relax knowing that all your school's crucial data is safely backed up offsite?

Certainly some of your data is now "in the cloud", but for many schools some critical data remains stubbornly onsite. In addition to traditional storage (tape, NAS & SAN) and site to site replication, SEP sesam now supports replication to the Amazon S3 cloud! So without adding infrastructure you can replicate your data offsite and relax!
