To begin backing up with TSM go to our guide on getting started.
The TSM backup service is available to Oxford University staff, senior members and postgraduates running Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Unix. Recent changes now allow users working away from Oxford to backup over VPN to the standard desktop backup service.
The HFS Team also offer a data archive service for static data that is considered to be of long-term value to Oxford University.
Please read our guidelines on acceptable use to see our restrictions and service limits.
