Intelligence Hosting Services is Donating Data Centre Space to Schools during COVID-19 Crisis 30 Mar 2020
As the coronavirus unfolds in the UK, our main priorities are to ensure the safety of our employees whilst ensuring our customers’ business continuity. One of the key industries affected by the pandemic (and one of our key customer bases) is the education sector.
As we come to the end of March 2020, over 1.7 billion students are out of primary, secondary and tertiary education due to school closures in response to coronavirus. According to UNESCO, over 100 countries have implemented nationwide closures, impacting nearly 90% of the world’s student population.
One of the methods schools are using to minimise disruption during the crisis is moving classes online. This has a huge impact on IT departments who need to ensure teachers can upload work online, students can access the work and communication lines aren’t disrupted. At Intelligent Hosting Services we’ve been racking our brains to think of ways to support the IT departments in the education sector during these difficult times and we’re willing to donate some of our data centre space.
To help schools and colleges reduce their IT costs during the COVID-19 crisis, we’re offering all educational institutions in the UK 10TB of Veeam Cloud Connect Backup and Recovery Disk Space for 6 months completely free of charge.
To take advantage of this offer simply connect your infrastructure by either installing Veeam Backup & Replication at your site(s), or using a Veeam Agent to connect stand-alone Servers or Workstations to our Off-Site Cloud Based Disk Repositories.
You can then (or we can help you remotely) backup your data via a secure AES256bit SSL Encrypted Tunnel over the Internet. All your data is held in our secure Tier 3 Data Centre here in the UK. We can even connect and backup your full Microsoft Office 365 Organisation like Mailboxes, OneDrive and SharePoint, giving you a safe off-site archive of all your organisational data, safeguarding you from potential disaster in case your onsite backup infrastructure failed in the event of an outage, data loss or a ransomware attack.
This offer can help schools save over £1400 and reduce management time for IT departments. If you are in the education sector please get in touch on 0800 612 5031 or email sales@intelligenceHS.co.uk and we will get this up and running for you as soon as possible.
