1. Current specifications our backup system

Most people use Bionet to backup their files.


  • Space occupied:
  • Space available:
  • Where is it physically located?
  • Are Bionet files regularly copied and stored somewhere else?
  • Problems with Bionet:
    • Not enough space to backup all our files e.g. microscope images

2. Ideal specifications of our future backup system

  • Capacity: we want to be able to store all files in a single location
  • Easy: automatic backup
  • Secure: the backup system shouldn't be located in building 68, in case of a fire
  • Efficient backing up or retrieving files should be speedy
  • Affordable

3. Potential solutions
