How Clifton College found data backup solutions

Clifton College independent public boarding school in Bristol has improved its data retention, backup and disaster recovery thanks to Arcserve IT solutions.

Clifton College is one of the UK’s top independent schools with nearly 2,000 students aiming to deliver a modern IT strategy. To achieve this they needed an effective backup and recovery solution that accommodated their growing amount of data but also protected their students and staff.

The IT team struggled with low data retention, high backup failure rate and false ‘successful’ backups without notification – leaving their backup and recovery process time-consuming and inefficient. It would take the IT team half a day to fix problems which ultimately affected the performance across the school’s network.

With the help of Cristie Cloud BaaS with Arcserve’s (Arcserve) UDP solution, Clifton College has seen a number of improvements, including:
  • Recovery Point Objectives from 24 hours to 15 minutes
  • 30 days data retention on-site and over one year off-site with multiple restore points
  • Scalable data storage for the estimated 5 to 6 TB  of data growth every six months Clifton College found IT solutions

Richard Edwards, head of IT systems at Clifton College, said:  “If we lost a pupil’s coursework that could have an impact on the rest of their lives – so it’s critical that we have a backup solution that’s dependable, reliable and we know works well.”
