Backup Storage Backup Storage

Kingston: Main Facility

We are currently backing up User's home directories for a period of ONE Month after which, the disk space will be recycled.

We have deployed a large DLT (digital linear tape) tape backup system using Oracle StorEdge L1400 tape library. We have implemented a backup and retrieval strategy of user files located in each users home directory (i.e., all files/directories referenced by the $HOME environment variable).

Check out the Software Page for information about available packages.
