ITANA,

As part of our approach to enterprise desktop management, Notre Dame is investigating enterprise-level endpoint backup solutions.  We are currently working with the University of Illinois to conduct initial product viability analysis.  Given the positive reception to last week's Internet2 Net+ announcements, we believe this is an opportunity for the community to come together and create new service offering in this fragmented market.

Just to be perfectly clear...

(1) Notre Dame is interested in investigating an enterprise solution using products like Carbonite, Mozy or CrashPlan (not an exhaustive list). 

(2) Notre Dame is  interested in taking a lead in working with Internet2 and investigating this as a Net+ service offering.    

We are looking for partners. 

If managing endpoint backups for your campus systems is a challenge you face and you believe Internet2 Net+ could help provide a solution path, please contact Sharif Nijim (snijim@nd.edu).

Best,
Sharif

Greetings from UNLV.

We are currently researching options for Endpoint Backup.  If your university is backing up your endpoints, can you share what product you are using, how well it does it's job, the approximate cost of the product as well as chargeback options for your clients.  We are looking at options for the cloud from Vendors such as Code 42 (Crashplan Pro), Druva (Insync), and Data Castle as well as more traditional products from HP and EMC.  Thanks for sharing !!!

Hi Everyone,
    Rice is currently beginning an evaluation of a public or private cloud based product that may make your list.  The company is Mezeo and provides mobile clients, sync client, document sharing and webdav collaborative suite with version tracking.  We have also looked at Crashplan, Mozy and others.   Mezo was recognized by the Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship as "Most Promising" in Dec 2008.  One of the areas of interest is backing up institutional data on BYOD and other mobile devices with the option to use public or private cloud storage solutions through REST protocols.  The software is currently focused on cloud based collaborative sharing and mobile document management but they have a PC and soon Mac based cloud sync client as well.

Good Luck
Barry

Greetings all,

 

Drake University is currently using Retrospect (an offering from Dantz) for our end point backups. We have engineered an extremely effective solution using this product from a cost perspective but it is showing its technology constraints so we continue to investigate potential alternatives as well.

 

We use EMC’s Avamar for our enterprise backup solution and are also discussing the feasibility of using Avamar to backup our end points as well.

 

At any rate, feel free to contact me off list if anyone has any questions or is interested in learning more about how we use Retrospect to backup our end points today.

 

Thanks,

 

Jeff

Darrell,

 

I can’t really help you with pricing since we’re still in the negotiation process, but you’re looking at the right products. The only additional one you might look at is Atempo LiveBackup. We have just decided to go with Crashplan here (assuming the pricing works out).  We decided to forego the ability to do a “bare metal” restore of a system in favor of ease of use and additional features for the user. We have not really discussed chargebacks but are not planning to do that if we can avoid it. I don’t want to dis-incentivize potential users.

 

- Mark

We implemented CrashPlan here in Feb-March of this year and have about 200 machines backing up with plans to expand it through the Fall. We like it very much and the user interface for restores is pretty easy for end users and also both Windows/Mac OS are well supported.
