Given the large amount of digital information created on a daily basis by even the smallest company, data loss is likely to be a nightmare scenario for any business that relies even slightly on accessing stored information. Thankfully it will not be an issue for those who purchase dedicated servers with instant setup from SnelServer.com, as in addition to providing flexible hosting on servers with specifications to meet all budgets, customers can also take advantage of automated backup software that ensures data can be recovered should the worst happen.
SnelServer.com’s Enterprise backup platform comes complete with software from R1Soft, which is compatible with both Windows and Linux servers. An initial clone of all data hosted on the server is copied over to SnelServer.com’s dedicated backup servers and then R1Soft’s Continuous Data Protection (CDP) software carries out incremental backups quickly and without further configuration. Backups of Windows servers can take place as frequently as every five minutes and R1Soft provides an easy-to-navigate web-based interface that customers can use to remotely manage their backups. It allows users to browse, restore and download individual files and, if needs be, monitor the progress of replication and restore jobs.
R1Soft allows for users to select files and folders to be excluded from automated backups – ideal for those who want complete control over what data is backed up – and the system can even be configured to only include certain file types in the backups. The latest version of CDP – 4.2.1 – brings a number of new features to the software, including support for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and 2007, while the speed at which file restore tasks are carried out has been improved by as much as 50 times.Carrying out regular data backups is something that can be easily overlooked, especially in small businesses with no dedicated IT department, but failure to do so can be catastrophic and potentially fatal for an enterprise that is growing quickly. This solution from SnelServer.com gives executives one less thing to worry about, letting them focus on developing their firm.
