Desktop Backup

The Problem: Mixed models of desktop system backups are presently ranging from non-existent to good, which are creating issues in terms of legal compliance around the process of ‘legal hold’, the process that an organization uses to preserve all forms of relevant information/documentation when litigation is reasonably anticipated.

Status: Rollout scheduled for late October.

Next Steps: Negotiating a contract with appropriate startup terms with a vendor, working with UVa Procurement to purchase, implementing on-site storage, working with the College and Schools to implement and provide long-term support.

What Does Success Look Like? Faculty and staff find the backup solutions easy to use, so that backups become the norm instead of the exception.
