Great things happening this week at the ‘Drive. We kicked off our ElephantDrive.EDU initiative with our first partner, Harvard Student Agencies. We here at ElephantDrive (especially our resident “Harvard Mouth”, CEO Michael Fisher) are thrilled to bring our versatile and simple protection and access platform to the next generation of leaders. Today’s college students are finding the majority of their class work being performed collaboratively and more often than not, stored on vulnerable laptops.
In the face of declining capital investments and slowing enrollment, educational institutions from K-12 schools to colleges and universities are looking for services (especially data protection solutions) that are easy, dependable, and economical. For the largest student-run corporation in the world, the turn to cloud services was natural. “We’ve been looking to add online backup to our menu of services for a while now,” said Austin Chu, Manager of the Harvard Student Agencies DormStore, “and once we found the ElephantDrive solution it was an easy decision.”
We intend to continue to develop features and functionality with the needs of students, faculty, and staff in mind.
