End User Device Backup/Sync is a safe and secure method for backing up data from end-user devices. Backups are set up to run automatically on a continuous-basis. Customers can also control which of their files/directories are backed up. (UC Berkeley policy states that only UC Berkeley files should be backed up. Personal files such as pictures and music should be excluded from backup selection).
The service increases safety and availability of the customer’s data, so if it is lost for any reason, it can be retrieved.
The service ensures customers area always able to access data that they back up and have the flexibility to control when and how often back-ups occur.
The cost of the service is ~$100/user/year
