Backing up your data has never been more important

Toucan gives you peace of mind by backing up locally and on remote cloud servers.

Increased use of technology in education comes with major benefits, to staff and students alike. But when things go wrong, which they occasionally do, it can be extremely stressful which is why you should always back up your data – to protect yourself and your users.

Here at Toucan Computing, we always recommend that schools have at least one backup of student data – ideally, more. Managing and monitoring these backups, keeping track of different files and remembering exactly when the last backup took place can, however, be onerous and time-consuming.

To take away this headache, Toucan Computing will give you the security you need by providing local backup to an external hard drive which our engineers monitor and maintain remotely. Even better, we can offer a second backup to the Cloud.

This means that student data will be backed up both in school on a local drive, and also securely away from school on remote Cloud servers, so you know that even if the worst happens, you won’t lose anything.

With Cloud backup, files are backed up automatically and continuously whenever you’re connected to the internet, so you don’t need to worry about when or how to start a backup; it all just happens. Cloud backup also makes ongoing management and restoration simple; if anything should happen to your data the backed up files can easily be found and restored.

Don’t fall into the trap of opting for inflexible, pricey systems. Toucan Computing can advise on a range of simple, reliable solutions that fit your needs and budget.

If you’re looking at backup solutions, or are just realising that you really need to start thinking seriously about them, please contact us to find out more.

I just want to put on record our appreciation of the support that Aman provided yesterday, along with the unscheduled additional support today. His work, especially in liaising with LGfL, was instrumental in getting the system back on an even keel. Thank you.

Toucan is a great Mac company that we have been using since it started more than 20 years ago. Staff listen to your needs, treat you intelligently and provide great service. They're always prepared to go that extra mile. And, better still, they do it with a genuine smile.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help with sorting out the iPads and setting them up. Gareth did a brilliant job with no fuss. I was really pleased and appreciated not being needed while teaching. I will be strongly recommending you to any other schools looking to get iPads.

I meant to email you today to say how happy I was with Andrew's support on Monday. Everything I asked for was possible and completed. There was no moan, no fuss, no impossible thing. Andrew made our training day successful and complete. His patience was tremendous.

Thanks so much for sending Andy in today. He was an absolute trooper and slogged away all day at getting us back online. It didn’t take knowledge alone; a lot of creative thinking and determination was required. I was very impressed.
