Webinar | Butler University: Building a Modern Backup & Recovery Strategy

This webinar is a part of the EDUCAUSE Industry & Campus Solutions series.

These days, your organization’s data are probably scattered across a range of platforms and devices, such as workstations, virtual machines, and third-party cloud applications. That makes the process of backing up and recovering data from these different sources complicated and time consuming. During this session, we will examine how Butler University implemented a comprehensive disaster recovery solution for hundreds of devices, servers, and virtual machines, and we'll share some of the challenges and lessons learned along that journey.


  • Examine data protection strategies for endpoints and servers
  • Compare off-site disaster recovery options from tape backups to cloud storage
  • Hear tips for streamlining maintenance and footprint of backups
