Educational institutions, from K-12 to higher ed, manage and protect a broad range of information, from student records to research. Many of these institutions don’t have the budget or resources commensurate with the importance and sensitivity of most of this data.
Whether you are provisioning and managing IT infrastructures yourself or working with a managed service provider, leveraging the cloud provides a more efficient way to store and protect data. And with ClearSky, you have on-demand primary storage, with built-in offsite backup and DR, in one managed solution. There is no copying of data, no managing of secondary infrastructure and a much more simplified IT environment. Our customers have eliminated the costs and management of backup and DR while protecting all of their data automatically.
Because our network uses dedicated Ethernet private lines and other private high-speed network connections, we avoid the performance and security challenges associated with public internet circuits. All data is encrypted when it enters the ClearSky service inside your data center and remains encrypted throughout the ClearSky service, in transit and at rest.
