Easy cloud backup of Microsoft 365 data earns high marks for SIT

Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT) is a private university in Japan that consists of four colleges, and a graduate school covering a wide range of engineering fields. The IT staff at the school supports around 9,000 students and 1,000 staff at three campuses in Shibaura, Toyosu and Omiya. Users always need reliable access to messaging and productivity applications. With COVID-19 increasing demand, a reliable backup and recovery service was doubly important.

We can roll out Microsoft 365 services with confidence, knowing that everything is safely backed up by NetApp SaaS Backup so our data could be restored quickly if anything happened. This peace of mind comes from the highly reliable storage solutions that NetApp continues to provide.

Takeshi Sato, Information Systems Division, Shibaura Institute of Technology

Promoting the use of Microsoft 365 and introducing NetApp SaaS Backup have played an important role in SIT's business continuity planning, allowing the university's work to carry on during the COVID-19 crisis. Being able to automate the troublesome backup process is another major advantage of NetApp SaaS Backup. For the Microsoft 365 environment, data is continuously and reliably backed up according to policies configured for each type of data.


10,000+ accounts are always available with a hands-off automation of processes that allows the IT department to focus on other services.
