Data backup for institute servers

Data backup for institute servers

The backup runs via the client-server programme IBM Spectrum Protect (ISP).

ISP is a backup system that backs up file areas and makes no distinction between file systems (UNIX) or drives (Windows). ISP thus makes it possible to back up common Linux/UNIX, Windows and OSX systems.

For whom?


Institutes can purchase an ISP licence to secure servers.

The annual cost is €15 per system plus €25 per terabyte.

What for?


The aim of the incremental backup (the partial backup) is to keep a true image of the file area in the backup system. Performing a backup means updating this image.

    How does it work?

    Acquiring a licence

    Institute administrators purchase the licence via a software order form, which you can find in our HRZ-Doku.

    Data volumes

    For data volumes larger than 10 TB, please contact in advance: dienstsupport@ticket.uni-bonn.de


    Detailed information and instructions can be found in the HRZ-Doku.
