Ashfield School, part of the Two Counties high-performing Multi-Academy Trust, one of the largest single site schools in the UK. Located on the border between Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, the school has 2,520 students and 360 staff, and prides itself on its cutting-edge technology.
In the education sector, an IT outage doesn’t just impact continuity of operations, it risks disrupting learning, and could even affect exam results. To reduce the risks of downtime, the school needed a faster, more robust backup solution.
With Arcserve Appliance, 35 terabytes of data is protected, deduplicated to just 10 terabytes and replicated off site for extra security. Additional trust schools, Selston High Scool and the
Manor Academy, also benefit from local and off-site protection from their own appliances. Incremental backups are taken overnight to ensure systems and data are highly available at all times.
The Arcserve Appliances reduce the risk of downtime or data loss impacting the learning process. Automation and a simple user interface free up the IT team who can spend less time managing backups and focus on more valuable activities. The appliances also facilitate disaster recovery capability should primary systems fail with a recovery time of just minutes.
