Sibername has implemented the CDP high technology solution from R1Soft or Righteous Software to backup its fleet of servers. CDP stands for Continuous Data Protection. The service will be free to all Sibername users.
CDP backs every change made in the data. The data can be restored to any point in time. In the traditional methods data had to be backed up after some time. The restoration would be only up to the last backup. With CDP, data is backed up continuously. There is no need to backup data every time. You get all your data back any time you chose to restore it. The move to R1Soft’s CDP complements the cutting edge of technology solutions at Sibername.
R1Soft’s CDP runs on a network access storage platform. It is placed on a gigabit private local area network and captures hourly snapshots. In case of disaster recovery, the failed hardware gets replaced and the CDP snapshots can be used to re-image a server. With this technology we can do so without reloading the operating system or the control panel software. The customers get instant access to their backups directly from the recovery link.
The CDP server reads the hard disks at the sector level, bypassing the file system for high level performance and recovery. Disk sector synchronization is performed when the server is online with no interruptions even on a busy server. CDP offers protection for your data. It also helps manage the data and archiving. There are features for browsing and restoring files. Other benefits include Bare-Metal Disaster Recovery or restore directly from the disk based backup. The backups are fast being sector based. Further only the changes need to be backed up. The software backs up open files as well.
Overall, this database backup solution at Sibername is an excellent technology decision.
