FilesX Earns Straight A’s Protecting Higher Education Data


Patented Data Backup and Recovery Solution Streamlines Data Recovery

SOUTHBOROUGH, MA -- 12/20/2004 -- FilesX, Inc., a leading provider of next-generation data protection and recovery solutions, has scored top marks in providing reliable information protection at institutions of higher learning. The Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Roxbury Community College, New York School of Interior Design and St. Michael’s College are among the institutions to recently safeguard their data and reduce the cost of managing data with an affordable, user-friendly solution -- the FilesX Data Protection and Recovery Product Suite.

The FilesX patented Data Protection and Recovery Platform combines superior data backup and recovery with seamless integration into an existing environment, resulting in a low-cost, low-maintenance data backup solution.

Today’s educational institutions are dealing with vast amounts of information drawn from many systems and sources, including administration databases, email, e-learning and data resources that range from a professor’s course Web site to an art student’s final portfolio. At the same time many colleges and universities are faced with budget constraints that limit spending on the personnel and equipment to support this extended IT infrastructure. The FilesX Data Protection and Recovery Product Suite protects data and enables fast data recovery while increasing productivity and lowering operating costs.

Thomas Sowinski, Director of Administrative Computing at the New York School of Interior Design, describes his experience with FilesX. “We implemented the FilesX system on the administrative side of the institution. One of the most attractive features of the FilesX system is how it seamlessly integrates with Microsoft products -- both Exchange and file servers. It’s ideal for our infrastructure because backup and retrieval features inside the Exchange program are almost non-existent.”

“The FilesX products have the features that make my job easier,” said Patrick Jean-Louis, Operations and Support Manager at Roxbury Community College. “We were looking for a robust data recovery product that was easy to navigate and simple to install. With FilesX, we now have the ability to recover an entire machine with the Bare Metal Restore feature. Additionally, FilesX enabled us to migrate all of our Microsoft Exchange data to a new server with no data corruption. We’re so confident in the FilesX solution that we’ve dropped tape backup altogether and moved completely to disk to protect our data.”

“Our customers in higher education face a unique set of requirements because they deal with a vast amount of information that is stored on systems that serve a variety of clients, often without the typical resources that businesses employ to run these systems,” said Frank Jablonski, Senior Product Marketing Manager at FilesX. “Many institutions are looking to streamline their data continuity processes to ensure that data is identified and protected, and to enable fast data recovery when necessary. The FilesX system is easily integrated into an existing infrastructure whether it’s a distributed system spread across a single campus or an entire state. FilesX protects all types of data and the Windows-based console allows junior staff or student staff to handle data recovery requests. The cost of restoring lost or corrupted data is too high in terms of personnel, time and reputation to rely on a recovery solution that can’t deliver data rapidly and reliably.”
