CloudAlly’s Education Backup Package Prevents Data Loss at Universities
02 Aug 2017 – Raanana, Israel – CloudAlly, one of the world’s leading cloud-to-cloud backups services for Google G Suite and Microsoft Office 365, today announced its new Education Package; with improved pricing terms; providing an all-round cloud data backup for academic institutions. The Education Package fulfills an industry need for affordable third-party software-as-a-service (SaaS) backup and recovery solutions that prevent data loss in education.
Seven of the eight Ivy League schools and the majority of top 100 universities in the U.S. use G Suite for Education-for a total of 70 million users. And that’s not the only cloud technology or SaaS application that universities use. Many academic institutions have turned to the cloud for improved mobility and collaboration. These solutions boost student motivation and performance by appealing to students’ affinity for technology and their need for social learning. The cloud is also beneficial to teachers and professors, who can access and edit student content in real-time for a more interactive experience.
Cloud applications come with some risks including data loss due to sync issues, intentional or accidental deletion, or user error. What many academic institutions don’t realize is that it’s the responsibility of their own IT department to fill in the data protection gaps by selecting a third-party SaaS backup for G Suite and Office 365. That’s where CloudAlly’s new Educational Package, is invaluable in preventing data in Universities and Academic Institutions.
With a pricing model to accommodate academic institutions, -CloudAlly ensures data availability. Unlike most other SaaS backup and recovery solutions, which charge per user, CloudAlly’s low-cost backup solution charges based on storage needs of the university.
