Learn how campuses can enhance their business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities with Qumulo Recover Q – a comprehensive, flexible data protection solution. This post recaps the second webinar in the Qumulo Higher Ed Qonversations series.

Whether you are running the IT department at a college or a data administrator at a university supporting research computing–protecting your data and mitigating data loss is top of mind. From natural disasters to hackers to good old fashioned failures–and a global pandemic–your IT department must be prepared to respond when disaster strikes and keep your data safe. In this article I’ll share the highlights from our Higher Ed Qonversation on Disaster Recovery. The topics we covered at the first of two webinars in our disaster recovery series, included:

  • The current state of disaster recovery and business continuity plans in Higher Ed
  • How colleges and universities can leverage the cloud to enhance their disaster recovery capabilities
  • What’s noteworthy about Qumulo Recover Q for data protection and how it has been embraced by leading organizations globally

Expanding on the last point above, Issac Roybal, VP Product Marketing, Qumulo, explained how colleges and universities can use Recover Q to mitigate data loss on premises in their data centers, and on public cloud infrastructure, as an integral component of their Business Continuity Strategies and Disaster Recovery Plans.

Watch this recently recorded webinar, led by Keith Nargi, Qumulo’s CTO Americas, and Fahad Quershi, VP of Cloud Sales, to hear how Qumulo Recover Q software solution employs the data protection services built into the Qumulo Core file data platform to help organizations recover their data from disasters. The presentation begins at the 2:00 time mark on the video.

Mitigate Data Loss with Layers of Defense

IT departments can take advantage of the data protection capabilities in Recover Q, as part of a holistic security strategy to help ensure data safety and integrity. You can use the built-in snapshot and cloud replication features to add layers of defense against real-world threats that could compromise data needed for day-to-day operations or compliance with data privacy regulations. In part two, we’ll take a closer look into how cloud-based disaster recovery as-a-service (DRaas) offerings can help campuses mitigate data loss and threats posed by ransomware.
