Data Backups

University Systems hosts network accessible enterprise tape backup facilities that can be used by all faculty and staff to centrally backup their data to an offsite location through the installation of TSM client software on their computers. The system is capable of backing up pedabytes of data on a nightly basis.

We strongly recommend that all researchers ensure that their research data is backed up nightly using the TSM system.

All Department provisoned network storage for home directories and research activity is backed up nightly.

For more information about the TSM system, please see the following documentation.
