Backup services allow campus staff and faculty to protect the files stored on computers and mobile devices. These services are designed to allow for the restoration of data in case the file is lost or the computer is damaged. When deciding between the two options offered for backups, please keep in mind that CrashPlan is used for personal backups, and ADSTAR Distributed Storage Manager (ADSM) is used for server backups. A “server” is generally defined as any computer routinely used by more than one person.
