Safeguarding Reputation

Customer Need

The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership works with leading thinkers to develop practical solutions to critical global challenges. It hosts executive education programmes, events and think tanks.

The Challenge

With its reputation dependent on its ability to facilitate informed debate and educate high-profile individuals, CISL must ensure its virtual servers, as well its data, are protected and continuously available.


PowerON Platforms designed and implemented an Arcserve UDP solution for safeguarding 2.5TB of data across 23 physical and virtual servers.. Incremental backups, virtual standby servers and data replication provides CISL with a multi-layered approach to recovery management.


Thanks to PowerON Platforms’s expertise and Arcserve UDP, CISL has reduced backup times from 18 to two hours and can quickly recover a server in the event of an incident. This helps to safeguard not only its data but also its reputation and the continuity of its activities.

“With a more unified approach to data protection, the institute can continue with its important work.”

Ellis Karim, IT Manager at the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership.
