At Phinnx, we understand that the Academia
is extremely dependent on data and schools
still do custom activities.
So what happens when all your data resides
on Phinnx?
 With our APIs (release date: TBA) institutions can
develop third-party solutions based on their data
within our servers (software)

It is evident in our framework architecture
(aforementioned) that academic data is
stored on each institution’s
server(hardware+software)
There are additional backup facilities for
academic data to those with access including
our automated backup option.
Has your server crashed? We will bring you
back online from our backup
