Making a Comeback
Ramaswami, Rama
T.H.E. Journal, v35 n9 p38-44 Sep 2008
As technology grows more pervasive in education, the data recovery issues that school systems encounter are becoming increasingly problematic, as districts work to accommodate a range of concerns that do not encumber commercial businesses. State and federal laws often require schools to report on student populations and educational progress according to mandated deadlines--meaning that even if the school district has suffered a disaster, an IT administrator needs to recover the data so he/she can file the necessary reports. Pinched by tight budgets, many district IT directors have come up with imaginative workarounds that operate within the various mandates and limitation placed on K-12 information infrastructure. In this article, the author discusses how resourceful technology directors plan ahead in protecting district data from disruptions and how they are devising their own backup solutions. She also presents an insider's tips for good data defense.
