Remote Backup

The Online Remote Data Backup Service backs up your school's data to a secure central off-site storage area. This simple and automated service will enable your latest data to be recovered in the event of a server fault. It can even be used to recover a data file deleted from the server in error.



The Online Remote Data Backup Service can be used for curriculum or administrative data and includes special facilities for SIMS.

Schools are increasingly relying on computer systems and digital content to teach their pupils the core subjects of the curriculum. Administration data on each pupil and how the school functions is critical, highly sensitive and needs to be protected in a sufficient manner.

Without all this information backed up and protected the consequences of data loss can be massively time consuming, disruptive and potentially embarrassing as unwanted headlines are just a disaster away which would result in a damaged and hard to repair reputation.

Your data is sent securely and encrypted across the internet, so you can have peace of mind that your important information is safe in the event of a disaster.

With the Online Remote Data Backup Service you can rest assured that you are meeting your statutory obligations and will be able to restore your data at the click of a button when you need to.

  • Offsite storage & data encryption for maximum security
  • Simple to configure and manage
  • Easy access to data, anywhere, anytime
  • No capital expenditure
  • No tapes to rotate or replace
  • Scalable and flexible
  • Benefit from latest software updates without additional costs

Traditional backup solutions involve someone physically managing the backup process before storing the tapes at the school site, or taking the tapes home.

The service from CIT includes the additional benefits of providing a totally managed service that will include;

  • Free audit and setup
  • Remote management to ensure success
  • Restores provided as part of the service
