University/College Partner Program

Colleges and universities generate massive amounts of data, from student and faculty records to invaluable research carried out under graduate programs. And yet, university IT departments often have limited budgets for appropriate backup equipment. Unfortunately, this puts students, faculty, and IT departments alike in uncomfortable situations when a computer’s hard drive dies, or a flash drive gets broken, or a server crashes.

Whether you are a student, faculty member/professor, help desk support or head of an IT department for your college, when data loss happens, it’s important to have a partner that can help. Gillware Data Recovery has been working with various organizations for over 15 years and has developed a program to work with all aspects of any college or university system when data loss occurs. As a university and college data recovery partner, you can receive a 15% discount on Gillware’s data recovery services when you submit a case on their behalf.
