Backup strategy

Simplify implementation of a backup strategy with Managed Veeam Backup

A university offers all current students a “social network”, a platform to exchange content between students, professors and the administrative staff. In addition to instant messaging, this social network offers the possibility to create and join public or private groups as well as store and share content of all types. This service is accessible from a PC or mobile device (smartphone, tablet) and users can connect 24/7/365. Let’s take a look at the backup strategy in place.

Key information

  • 20,000 users

  • Dedicated Cloud hosting 13 VM

    (RPO: It is the maximum targeted period in which data might be lost from a service due to an incident.)
