The data security has become a major issue for online businesses nowadays.

What is Online Backup Solution ?

Also called as a remote backup service, the online backup solution is the easiest way to create a copy of the data at a frequency determined as required and automatically sends them to a specific server or servers in multiple data centers by encrypting the data through a secure connection.

Today, most of the companies uses risky backup solutions that:

  • Backups data on the corporate network;
  • Synchronizes files and folders between the local disk of the user and the central server;
  • Copying data to removable drives such as CD, DVD, Hard Drive, etc.)

However, these kinds of methods may be performed to ensure the safety of data but not the security and, indeed, the sustainability of the company. The only best method to ensure the security and safety of your website data is to have a professional online backup hosting solution that eliminates all the risks and constraints, as it offers an automatic, secure and remote backup solution based on the R1Soft’s Continuous Data Protection (CDP).

How Does the Offsite Backup CDP Solution Work ?

Many companies are already sensitive to the hard and major issue of data loss and its disastrous effects, and for this purpose they take some measures such as RAID disks, cartridges, digital, etc… however, all these components have their faults.

The R1Soft’s CDP solution is an advanced software application that permits the disk-based data protection and disaster recovery for Windows and Linux based web servers and workstations. The solution defends the data by replicating and synchronizing it over the network storing point-in-time snap-shots in to a disk-based storage (ie. on an offsite server). Usually, the backups takes seconds to minutes to complete the backup process of data.
