Trust is good, backup is better! If you can rely on a good backup of data and systems, you are already on the safe side. We know that this time it took a little longer than planned, but we would like to take this opportunity to thank all at RWTH Aachen University backup admins for their patience and trust. Of course, we would also like to thank our Friendly User Group, which has accompanied us since February ’22. Therefore we are even more happy to announce: We are ready to go!

This year has clearly shown us how essential a good IT infrastructure is. Day after day, huge amounts of data are created, processed and shared, both privately and professionally.
