    • Christian Brothers University protects student data and prepares for unforeseen challenges

      Meeting federal data protection regulations was challenging for Christian Brothers University. The company switched to a Dell EMC IDPA DP4400 appliance, automating protection of their VMs and enabling 84:1 deduplication. Using Dell EMC Cloud Tier and Cloud DR to AWS instead of tape backups saves them 8-10 hours each week.

    • Incomparable 84:1 deduplication rate

      Britt Anderson, Supervisor System Administration at Christian Brothers University, greatly appreciates the deduplication rate that Dell EMC has made possible.

    • IDPA improves students’ learning environment

      Supervisor System Administration Britt Anderson goes deeper and outlines Christian Brothers University’s background, challenges, and relationship with Dell EMC.

    • Saving time, money and manpower

      Between complying with federal regulations and supporting research projects, data plays a strategic role at Christian Brothers University. Previously, university IT staff spent 8–10 hours per week recovering data. Now, staff and students can be certain that their backups will work, and quickly.

    • Meeting regulations and helping students succeed.

      From three difficult systems to one seamless partnership, Christian Brothers University enjoys a high deduplication rate, better-than-ever performance, and a faster transition of applications to the cloud, all of which save them frustration and funds.


    • Our deduplication rate is 84:1. Once you see that dedupe rate and compression, it’s hard to go anywhere else.
