New lower cost for BackItUp service effective October 1, 2017

ISC is pleased to announce a rate reduction for its BackItUp service. Effective October 1, 2017, the monthly rate is $0.33/GB ($4.00/GB annually), which represents a 38% cost savings from the previous monthly rate ($0.54/GB or $6.50/GB annually).

BackItUp is a fully-configurable set of backup tools which allows server administrators to back up their servers without incurring the cost and support burden of maintaining their own backup infrastructure. The service provides an easy to use interface with control over which data gets backed up, the frequency of backups, and how many backups to retain. BackItUP is provided using the industry-leading IBM Spectrum Protect (formerly known as TSM) software suite.
