Are you backing up your data at regular intervals – or do you think it is inconvenient? SDU offers backup of various platforms, workstations and servers for all staff.
Central Administration and Campuses in Jutland
All employees of the Central Administration and employees at the campuses in Jutland save their data to shared drives. These data are backed up every night.
SDU employees may have their IT equipment connected to IT-service’s backup system. Data Protector consists of two network connected Unix servers, a number of tape robots and administrative software (HPs Data Protector). Furthermore, the IT equipment in question must be provided with client software.
It should be emphasized that the system is designed to prevent data loss due to technical or operational conditions and should not be used for long term storage (archiving) of data.
Data Protector backs up computers and servers with Windows, Novell, UNIX and some LINUX versions. A client is to be installed on Windows, Novell and most UNIX/LINUX versions.
If using older versions of UNIX/LINUX, these can be operated via an NFS link.
A full backup operation is performed at least once a week. In addition to that, an incremental backup can be run as often as desired (changes since the last backup operation of any type).
All backup is stored for 5 weeks. This means that we will usually be able to restore 4 weeks old data. However, the restore operation must be performed as soon as possible after losing your data since this will provide the best conditions for a successful restore. Once the backup structure is defined, the backup is performed automatically. However, your machine must be turned on and connected to the network. It is possible to retrieve entire file systems, fragments of file systems and single files from the relevant backups.
