Cancer Research UK

Providing affordable, reliable backup and recovery for Cancer Research UK.

What was the challenge?

  • CRUK had high backup costs from managed service provider
  • CRUK data growth required a solution that could provide de-duplication
  • CRUK needed a private cloud strategy, requiring VMware-compatible backup solution so they can back up virtual machines as well as physical servers


Cancer Research UK’s IT infrastructure is critical in safeguarding supporter data,

scientific research, and mission-critical applications.

Their data cannot be compromised.

CRUK outsourced their back up and recovery infrastructure, but found this was cost prohibitive and not as flexible as they needed.

CAE worked with CRUK to deliver a cost effective back up and recovery solution, which gave them the adaptability they needed.
