Redstor have been focused on Backup, Storage and Archiving since 1998 and have been serving the education market since 2005. Redstor's flagship Online Backup service, Redstor Backup Service for Schools (RBUSS), is the market leading online backup service for the education market and is accredited by Capita to back up SIMS data. In addition to RBUSS, Redstor offers a range of further services to the education market including CentraStage which aims to improve the service uptime of school devices and E-Safety which ensures a safe learning experience for children when they're using school computers. As a market leading education service provider, Redstor's cost-effective education-focused services are offered to schools via a network of over 85 education focused partners who address over 12,000 schools across the UK. Redstor's core belief and one that is shared by our partners is that ICT services should be provided to schools in such a way as to enable schools to focus on teaching kids rather than having to worry about their IT. Redstor have been operating in the education market for a long time and we've witnessed on many an occasion money being wastefully spent on IT for the sake of IT as schools and their support providers alike have been seduced into parting with their cash for the sake of the latest shiny gadgets and all things new and flashy. A recent example of schools being caught out by some of the procurement headaches associated with procuring new IT equipment, not to mention the associated risks is the recent news surrounding schools being caught out in an IT-leasing scam. The net result of this was the schools themselves were facing a combined debt totalling £1.5m between them while none of the promised equipment was delivered. In many ways, the Cloud offers a break from this mindset as it enables schools to transition from focusing on 'owning' IT to 'using' IT. Ultimately, IT should be about connecting people to information safely, effectively and efficiently. How this is done, in the Cloud or using expensive bought equipment, is largely irrelevant. If you're a school struggling to find a a trusted service or support provider, Redstor would be more than happy to point you in right direction.....
