The school selects the data which they wish to backup either from an Administration or a Curriculum server. On the first backup, a ‘seed’ backup of the full data set takes place. When the data leaves the school’s site it’s fully compressed and encrypted and remains encrypted whilst at-rest in the data centres.
Once the seed backup has taken place, the software only sends across the incremental changes to the data on an ‘incremental forever’ basis.
After 30 days of backups, the software performs a ‘month end’ roll up of the previous incremental backup and creates a month end. 2 month ends are kept online meaning that you have 60 days of restore points – enough to see you through the summer holidays should any of your students accidentally delete data on the last day of term!
Restoring data couldn’t be simpler. Contact our ICT Service desk who will use web management tools to restore from the installed client over the Internet, or for very large restores, data can be couriered to site, encrypted, on disk.
