Protection against the unexpected
As the end of term is almost upon us we thought we’d remind you of GridStore, the secure, off-site backup service offered at a special price by London Grid for Learning (LGfL) to their connected schools. Easy to set-up, GridStore ensures your data is properly backed up, meaning it’s kept safe from any unforeseen events that may occur while everyone is off enjoying a well-deserved Summer break!
With the backing up of school data being increasingly important, GridStore offers an automated, reliable, cloud-based backup solution at a preferential rate specifically for LGfL and TRUSTnet connected schools. Easily set up, GridStore automates much of the back up process allowing for regular, secure backing up of important school data without hassle or the need for on-site technical expertise. It also affords the freedom to control where critical admin and finance data, for example, is stored as well as the ability to retrieve it when needed.
Furthermore, GridStore ticks the box of the EFA’s Schools Financial Value Standard Guidelines for your Disaster Recovery Plan as it offers ‘daily backing up off-site of the schools important IT systems‘.
• Simple and easy to use
• Fully automated – set and forget
• No hardware to pay for or go wrong
• Free telephone support
• 24 hour case logging system
• All data is encrypted before it leaves the school site
• Rapid data recovery online
• 2 copies of data are stored off-site in highly secure, UK data centres
Schools across multiple sites also benefit as it boosts operational efficiency by reducing the number of backup deployments (such as tape drives or removable media) to maintain, and also by providing central visibility of backup success and failure. GridStore will back up from all locations to two centralised data centres reducing time, risk and cost.
Enjoy the break!
