Backup & Restore
The IT Center offers a backup and restore service. The institutes using this service have the possibility to save versions of local computer systems and servers of the institutes on the backup servers of the IT Center and restore them if necessary.
The data of a computer is saved in a tape library. To be able to do this a client software (Tivoli Storage Manager) will be installed on the computer that transfers the data periodically and automatically.
Making use of this service guarantees that computer malfunctions, accidentally deleting or overwriting, software errors, etc do not lead to the loss of scientific data. In those cases the restore service makes a reliable and quick restoration of data possible.
