We keep regular backups of home directories on both our Unix systems and our Windows Active Directory servers.
Unix/Linux research data is not backed up centrally by default. We can perform offsite backups of your linux data hosted on our main file servers by special arrangement (there is a modest cost)
For Windows-based research computers, we do not currently offer a network backup service. We recommend connecting such computers to our Windows Active Directory file server, where they will be backed up.
The College runs a system called CrashPlan for backup of standalone computers.
