EZ-Backup is a fee-based, automated, remote backup/archive/storage service that will automatically back up your workstation or server files, and allow you to restore them yourself.
EZ-Backup is available to faculty and staff.
EZ-Backup currently backs up over 3,900 computers and servers for departments across campus, as well as Cornell's server "farm" in Rhodes Hall, home to critical university data.
EZ-Backup uses Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM), which runs on Windows, Macintosh, UNIX, and other operating systems. Tivoli is a subsidiary of IBM. Storage is handled by automated tape robots in a highly secure, environmentally controlled location. Access to stored files is password-protected, using a Kerberos-like, two-way authentication process.
You choose what time to back up, how often, which files to include and exclude and how many versions of files to store. EZ-Backup also offers archiving. You can retrieve files any time, day or night.
