United Learning has chosen to protect its data with Securstore’s Hybrid Cloud solution. With 30,000 students, 5,500 staff, 20 academies and 11 independent schools, United Learning needed a credible, flexible cloud solution with guaranteed confidentiality and data security.
Having realised a Public Cloud option would not suit its data volumes, United Learning instead chose Securstore’s Hybrid Cloud model. This meant dedicated infrastructure was implemented at United Learning’s own data centre while a secondary, replicated system provided another layer of backup at Securstore’s own data centre.
This gives United Learning both a primary and a replicated system under its exclusive control for faster backups and restores. The model is further simplified with a fixed OPEX fee and as the hardware was provided by Securstore, no CAPEX investment was required.
Alexander Eiriksson, COO of Securstore, said, “Hybrid or Private Cloud deployment is the only way forward when backing up large volumes of data. Long term, this gives the customer more control, flexibility and scalability in their overall backup strategy. We are delighted to welcome United Learning onboard and look forward to working with them in the years to come.”
