Expenses and Growth
Computer hardware, resources, maintenance and the team required to manage the upkeep of these systems are expensive and time consuming. With educational funding often facing cutbacks every extra dollar helps. Not only for the school and faculty but, more importantly, for the students.
The amount of data an educational facility has to protect continues to grow at an accelerated pace with each year. With the growth, traditional methods of data backup (tape, CD/DVD, flash drive, external HDD) are becoming too slow and ultimately obsolete – many schools are making the switch to a cloud-based backup.
With a cloud-based solution, opportunities for growth and flexibility are everywhere:
- Better managed IT budget
- Reducing hardware maintenance
- Reducing the chance of data loss
- Maximizing physical space at the facility by removing hardware needs
- Collaboration between faculty and students
- Availability of data
- Automatic backups let you focus on what is important
Availability and Collaboration
With the increasing use of smartphones, tablets and computers the ability to share files between these devices makes forgetting your homework at school a thing of the past. The ability to collaborate with peers and staff often creates multiple versions of the same document.
Canadian Cloud Backup also provides full access to all of your data over a web front end, giving you even more access to your backed up files.
Data Security and Compliance
Canadian Cloud Backup is both HIPAA and PIPEDA compliant.
Canadian Cloud Backup uses a three-tier encryption process. First, data is encrypted on the device using a military-grade, 256-bit AES encryption before ever being sent out. Once encrypted, data is sent over 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Once arriving at the cloud, it is then encrypted once again in 256-bit AES. Data is only ever created, received or transmitted when encrypted.
Canadian Cloud Backup’s Ultrasafe™ allows users with highly sensitive information to store their data securely such that no one, including Canadian Cloud Backup’s engineers will be able to access their data.
Datacentre and Transfer
Canadian Cloud Backup utilizes 100% Canadian datacentres. We have also partnered with Peer1 to utilize a data center in Toronto. View information regarding our datacentres. Furthermore, data during transit is never routed outside of the borders of Canada.
Canadian Cloud Backup (being HIPAA/PIPEDA compliant), can also be used to store the records (report cards, registrations, etc.) offsite to reduce the possibility of irreplaceable records being permanently lost. Should a disaster strike, you can restore all of your data quick and easy and get back to what’s important.
