Following its R1Soft partnership announcement, Canadian web hosting provider Cirrus Tech announced on Thursday it is now offering current and potential dedicated server customers new remote backup plans that include R1Soft's Continuous Data Protection software.
Cirrus Tech says it will offer these new data protection services to provide a reliable, efficient and affordable backup solution. The company decided to use R1Soft's CDP software to give customers more value added service than a traditional backup solution.
R1Soft's CDP software provides a near continuous backup by taking periodical snapshots of a customer's hard disk drive and storing each snapshot as a separate restore point.
The frequency of restore point creation is determined by each customer and can be configured as little as 5 to 10 minutes apart to enable near continuous data protection. However, any data transfer that happens as a result of the backup process will go against the monthly traffic quota.
Customers will be able to choose the backup plan best suited for their data protection needs. Each plan has a specific amount of backup space and a maximum number of restore points.
Since customers are able to have multiple restore points, they can choose which restore point they would like to use in the case they need to restore their data.
Cirrus Tech customers can choose a remote backup plan that best suits their current backup requirements. The plan's scalable nature enables them to upgrade their backup plan when they need more backup space in the future.
All restore points generated are stored on Cirrus Tech's backup servers running R1Soft's CDP Server Application. Customers can easily manage their backups through a web interface, says the company.
Cirrus Tech's new backup plans range from plans that include 20 to 500GB of remote backup space.
