We use the Barracuda backup system and all data is backed up every night and we store a backed up copy onsite and a copy offiste at a secure, remote location for disaster recovery. Nightly backups are done by UWITC so in the case of a full system loss, the UWITC can restore the server's data. A happy byproduct of those nightly backups is that the UWITC may be able to recover individual files, email messages, transactions, etc in the case of their accidental deletion; however, that is not the purpose of the backups and cannot be guaranteed. If a member needs files restored they must open a ticket with UWITC who will do its best to recover the data within 48 hours. PLEASE NOTE: Individual Contacts and calendar items are not backed up nightly. They will only be restored in case of a system failure.
All data backed up from the Delaware colo facility with the Barracuda backup appliance is replicated to two secure Barracuda data centers - one in Atlanta and one in Detroit. All data is retained for 14 days.
