WEST PALM BEACH, FL – June 15, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — N2W Software (N2WS), a leading provider of backup and recovery solutions for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and a Veeam company, today announced that The University of Notre Dame is protecting critical data and workloads on AWS with Cloud Protection Manager (CPM) from N2WS.

Aaron Wright, Notre Dame Systems Engineer, presented in a webinar co-sponsored with AWS on June 13, 2018 detailing how the university maintains continuity with its cloud workloads and data when unforeseen circumstances arise.

Notre Dame is a national Catholic university with more than 8,500 undergraduates and more than 3,800 graduate and professional students. For many years, Notre Dame has operated under a cloud-first initiative, and its goal is to have 80 percent of all academic and administrative workloads on the cloud within three years. To date, most of their line of business applications are already on the cloud, such as authentication, which helps students and faculty as they travel; and the university website is now able to deal with extreme traffic spikes easily.

With many mission-critical applications and data on AWS and much more to come, Notre Dame has adopted a forward-thinking backup strategy on AWS. The university turned to Cloud Protection Manager (CPM) from N2WS, to protect numerous accounts and regions with regularly-scheduled, incremental, snapshot-based backups.

As a cloud-native backup tool built specifically for AWS, Cloud Protection Manager gives organizations the ability to back up data as often as needed and recover it far more quickly than with traditional on-premises backup solutions, simplifying workloads and saving teams’ time and resources.

Notre Dame’s forward-thinking approach to cloud data protection has already paid off. For example, recently the applications team rolled out a patch on a production server and unwittingly introduced a vulnerability. The university was able to successfully leverage CPM to roll the patch back, retaining critical data and supporting business continuity.

“At Notre Dame, our IT infrastructure relies heavily on Amazon Web Services, so our data and applications must be protected and available,” said Aaron Wright, Notre Dame Systems Engineer. “With CPM from N2WS, I know that if data is corrupted or accidentally deleted, we will be able to restore it almost instantaneously. N2WS is a critical piece of our cloud strategy.”
