What do Backup Services include?

Backup Services allow Co-Location Server Hosting administrators to backup server data and operating systems to C&IT's centralized and secure backup environment.

In addition to onsite storage, the backup environment as a whole is duplicated off site to ensure the safety and continuity of your data. This service is available to all WSU units that run university-owned and managed servers that will be or are already currently hosted at the C &IT data center.
