Near Continuous Data Protection Available for Cirrus Tech Dedicated Server Clients

Cirrus Tech offers automated remote backup utilizing R1Soft’s Continuous Data Protection (CDP) software.

Toronto, ON – July 24, 2008 On the heels of their R1Soft partnership announcement, leading Canadian Web Host, Cirrus Tech,has made available to current and potential dedicated server clients new remote backup plans employing R1Soft’s Continuous Data Protection (CDP) software. With these new data protection services, Cirrus Tech aims to provide a reliable, efficient, and affordable backup solution.

The decision to use R1Soft’s CDP software was to provide clients with a more value added service than a traditional backup solution. R1Soft’s CDP software provides a near continuous backup by taking periodical snapshots of a client’s hard disk drive and storing each snapshot as a separate restore point. The frequency of restore point creation is determined by each client and can be scheduled as little as 5 to 10 minutes apart allowing for a near continuous data protection. It is important to note, however, that any data transfer that occurs as a result of the backup process will go against the monthly traffic quota.

Clients 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. Because clients 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’s remote backup plans are designed to be easily scalable. Clients can take advantage of this by choosing the plan that best suits their current backup requirements and upgrade their backup plan when they require more backup space in the future. All restore points (backups) created are stored on Cirrus Tech’s backup servers running R1Soft’s CDP Server Application. In addition, clients can easily manage their backups through a simple web interface.

Cirrus Tech’s new Remote Backup Plans were available at the time of this writing and range from plans that include 20 to 500 GB of remote backup space.
