Cirrus Tech Announces Partnership with Data Protection Provider R1Soft

Canadian web host, Cirrus Tech, partners up with R1Soft to offer dedicated server clients with a near continuous data protection solution.

Toronto, ON – June 16, 2008 With the goal of providing dedicated server clients with the most sophisticated data protection solution, Cirrus Tech has announced its partnership with R1Soft. R1Soft is a leading developer of continuous data protection (CDP) software and services.

“The web hosting industry is an extremely competitive environment,says Ehsan Mirdamadi, Chief Executive Officer of Cirrus Tech.”Losing client’s data and ultimately their trust can result in huge consequences for any web host. While we currently provide an in-house backup solution, we felt that R1Soft’s solution offered additional back-up features that may appeal to some of our clients.” With the ability to specify the frequency of “recovery points” (back-ups) , clients are able to make as many recovery points as they choose and are only limited by their back-up storage capacity and available traffic within their hosting plan.

Some of the advantages of R1Soft’s data protection solution are:

  1. Near continuous data protection of data: Backups system capable of providing hundreds of recovery points per day scheduled as little as 5 or 10 minutes apart.
  2. Data protection management through the Plesk Control panel: Clients can manage the backup process from their control panel themselves.
  3. Bare-Metal Disaster Recovery: Restore servers directly from disk-based backup.
  4. End-to-end strong encryption: Data is continuously encrypted while in storage and during network transmission using RSA keys.

Cirrus Tech plans to offer their current remote back-up solution alongside R1Soft’s data protection services. Cirrus’s in-house backup service consists of a remote backup storage clients can purchase as an add-on to their dedicated server. This remote drive will appear as a network drive that clients can manage. R1Soft’s near-continuous data protection will be available for new and existing dedicated server clients in the upcoming month.
