IlliniCloud Disaster Recovery

We are actively taking Disaster Recovery Requests

If you are looking to get started with Disaster Recovery on the IlliniCloud we invite you to take a minute or two and please fill out the Disaster Recovery Request Form.  It will provide us some basic information about the services you are looking for so we can better assess the situation before we talk with you.  Once you have filled out the form someone from the IlliniCloud DR team will contact you shortly to start an initial conversation about the services that will take anywhere from 10-20 minutes.  We also have posted updated information about the service in the Services section of the website along with a FAQ of the most commonly asked questions about the service that have came up over the initial conversations we have with everyone.

Disaster Recovery Requirements

  • K12 Public or Private District and LEAs
  • Windows or Linux Servers
  • Indicate your provider (ICN/other) and connection speed – T1 minimum speed required.
  • Basic understanding of services you need to DR.  Additional assistance can be provided by local area Network Specialists if needed.

Disaster Recovery Details

We have a detailed FAQ section available under the Services section of the website, but in short we offer a short term Disaster Recovery solution that allows a school to provide an offsite backup of core services of data in case of data loss.  We commonly have school districts doing this for core systems such as SIS and Financial systems along with file data.  We provide an excellent solution to DR your virtualized VMWare environment as well if you are looking for another layer of protection in that area.

We are still conducting ongoing trials to determine the final cost to the districts in a consumption based model (by GB stored) and once the pricing plan is released you will have the option to continue with the service or discontinue the use of the service at no cost.  During these trials we are offering access to the service at no cost.
