URLJet, a provider of vBulletin message board web hosting, today announced the launch of its File Guardian Web Backup service, introducing round-the-clock database backups for hosted vBulletin message boards.
The company says that with File Guardian, a fully managed service, even busy vBulletin message boards are backed up continuously, nearly eliminating the chance of data loss in the event of a disaster.
Backup restore points are stored securely in a remote facility, and each database can be recovered in a matter of minutes following a disaster or accidental data loss.
It further explains that File Guardian, which protects posts across thousands of message boards for its customers, is powered by R1Soft's CDP Server.
The technology directly reads hard disk volumes at the sector level, bypassing the file system, and thereby allowing active MySQL databases to be protected without a noticeable impact on server performance or effect on database activity.
With R1Soft's True Granular Restore technology, the company adds that it can speed recovery time with the ability to choose to restore specific tables in a database.
"For owners of vBulletin message boards, the most valuable asset they own is the content in their database. Since this information is changed rapidly as end users interact with the message board, it is imperative to have an up-to-the-minute backup to utilise in the event of a disaster," said Todd Reagor, URLJet CEO.
"Without a current backup, years of posts, member lists, and other crucial data can be lost in an instant after something as minor as a hard drive failure or upgrade gone wrong."
