    01/14/15 Changes Coming for Eagle Backup

    The university is currently moving to a new desktop backup solution. As of February 1, 2015, the existing vendor (Copiun) for Eagle Backup (desktop backup solution) will no longer be supported. If you wish to continue with this service, you must complete the Eagle Backup Request form for accountability purposes.

    The current agreement stipulates no charge for 0 – 50GB of data. Charges for exceeding the 50GB quota will apply as follows:

    $0/mo 0-50GB

    $5/mo 50-100GB

    $10/mo 100-150GB

    $15/mo 150-200GB                                          

    $20/mo 200-250GB

    $25/mo > 250GB

     ***No charges will be assessed without a request and approval from the budget authority on the Eagle Backup Change Request form. Each budget authority receives a monthly detail of backups provisioned and their related charges, if any.***

    There will be no migration of current data. Your new backup will be fresh upon installation of the new client and from that date forward will be maintained on a 30-day retention policy.
