VPS.NET Brings R1Soft Continuous Data Protection® to the Cloud

November 24, 2009 by  

Web Hosting ToolboxLONDON – UK2 Group announced the availability of R1Soft Continuous Data Protection® (CDP) across its extensive virtual private server cloud. VPS.NET now offers customers a more advanced level of data protection with user-ready CDP backups and individual file-restoration capabilities.

VPS.NET offers an “instantly deployable” image that can have a Continuous Data Protection (CDP) Server up and running in just 60 seconds giving customers complete administrative privileges over scheduling and managing their backups. The CDP software protects VPS.NET customers’ environments by performing asynchronous replication of the target servers and archiving only the deltas or changed blocks to disk. Each replication creates a full backup that typically only takes minutes to create, even on larger data sets. This gives VPS.NET customers the ability to perform more granular restores of individual files or folders as opposed to restoring the entire VPS.

CDP can replicate other VPS.NET virtual machines and physical servers to recovery points stored on disk. It can replicate and archive nodes inside the VPS.NET cloud as well as any Internet accessible Windows or Linux server. CDP recovery points provide VPS.NET customers the ability to perform more granular restores of individual files or folders as opposed to restoring the entire VPS.

“Our team has been working closely with R1Soft for months on this project and we are pleased to say that we can now offer our customers scalable VPS hosting with a trusted high-performance data protection offering that can be deployed within minutes,” said Ditlev Bredahl, CEO of UK2 Group.

With the new offering clients also have the flexibility to increase the storage space on their CDP Server in just minutes. R1Soft Agent licenses will be available to VPS.NET clients for $15 /month. The R1Soft CDP MySQL Add-on, a necessity for correct backups of all online MySQL databases, will be available for an additional fee. CDP for MySQL provides user-scheduled asynchronous replication of online MySQL databases and works with both MyISAM and InnoDB storage engines.

“As one of the first large deployments of CDP on the cloud, the opportunity to work with VPS.NET’s experienced virtualization team on this project has been very exciting for R1Soft. Adding CDP for Linux, Windows and MySQL, exemplifies VPS.NET’s commitment to offering customers a wide range of self-managed services,” said David Wartell, vice president of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies, Inc.
