DCO provides a full range of network backup services for registered workstations, servers, and research machines connected to the DCO network.

Important Update --- As of November 10, 2011 the $10 monthly fee for backups has been eliminated. All machines that have been registered with DCO and have paid the one-time support fee are now elegible to be backed up at no additional charge.

DCO Servers

All public DCO servers are backed up over the network on a regular basis. This ensures that, when hardware or software failures occur, user files remain safe and downtime is minimized.

Windows Workstations

DCO now provides backup services for Windows machines using our BackupPC infrastructure. All machines registered with DCO and that have paid their one time support fee are eligible to have up to 100GB of data backed up at no additional charge. Machines that require more space may purchase additional storage for $100 per 100GB billed as a one-time fee.

For those that are interested, we also support the ITS provided CrashPlan as an alternative backup solution. To enroll in the program, visit the Desktop Backup page on the ITCS website.

Mac OS, Linux, and Unix workstations and servers

Registered Mac OS, Linux, and Unix workstations and servers are also eligible to take advantage of our BackupPC infrastructure. All machines registered with DCO and that have paid their one time support fee are eligible to have up to 100GB of data backed up at no additional charge. Machines that require more space may purchase additional storage for $100 per 100GB billed as a one-time fee.
