City University of Hong Kong
City University of Hong Kong (CityU) is a dynamic, fast‑growing university pursuing excellence in research and professional education. As a publicly funded institution, it is committed to nurturing student talents and creating applicable knowledge to support social and economic advancement. CityU is well regarded within university rankings and is currently among the top 18 in Asia and the top 55 in the world.
Reliance on Microsoft’s native capabilities to restore data, including Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams, meant that there was no way to recover data older than 90 days, which exposed CityU to data loss from accidental deletion and/or ransomware. Their backup providers did not have a cloud native solution for protecting Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace data. The IT team wants to reduce the total cost of ownership to buy and manage hardware, and provide a cloud-native data protection solution.
The Druva Data Resiliency Cloud fills the backup and recovery gaps in both Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, which created vulnerability to data loss from accidental deletion and/or ransomware. Their IT team has peace of mind that the University’s data is protected 24/7. They has greater visibility into the storage that it’s using (about 160 terabytes), making it easier to control costs while also having the ability to scale up on demand.
