Plano,TX (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
24 Hour Data announced today the launch of a new program aimed specifically at making data recovery a more affordable option for educators and students anywhere in the country facing the nightmare of data loss. While professional data recovery services are still a relatively expensive proposition, 24 Hour Data is hoping to take some of the sting out of it by extending a 25% services discount to educational institutions that join their new program. This program would not just benefit the schools themselves, but would serve the entire student and faculty community as well.
“When a hard drive crashes, the consequences for the user can range from really bad to truly devastating,” said Fred Marks, VP of Business Development for 24 Hour Data; “and we know this can be a particularly damaging event for those in education.” Marks said that aside from students and faculty members potentially losing personal projects and papers through a hard drive failure, school departments, particularly at our Universities, can suffer greatly from lost research that could be worth millions if their server RAIDs fail. And, according to Sean Wade, CEO of 24 Hour Data, they do fail, and with alarming frequency: “if everything worked the way it was designed to, data recovery wouldn’t be a billion dollar industry.”
Wade stressed the need for individuals and enterprises to back up their critical data in case of hardware failure, but said the worst case can still happen despite precautions. “We’re here to help,” says Wade, “when all other measures fail. We can be the difference between disaster, and getting back to business as usual. My hope is that our new partner program for education makes these services more available to some of the folks that need it most.”
