Backups (Server) with UBI
A remote file backup service, University Backup for Infrastructure (UBI) stores data on Penn State servers for Penn State faculty and staff. Several versions of files can be backed-up and restored in the event of component failure, accidental deletion, file corruption, or another type of damage sustained to the original file. To ensure full data restoration, both a primary copy of backed-up data and a secondary, off-site copy are maintained.
You can obtain access to the UBI service by completing the EIT Remote File Backup UBI Request Form.
This service is part of the Storage and Backups category.
