Managed hosting provider Fast Serv Networks today revealed details regarding its implementation of R1SoftContinuous Data Protection® (CDP) as the software behind its managed backup solutions. R1Soft CDP backups are included with Fast Serv’s cPanel Web hosting plans and offered as an add-on to its virtual and dedicated server offerings.
The cross-platform CDP product brings significant efficiencies - both in implementation and systems administration – to Fast Serv. Using CDP, Fast Serv can manage backups for Windows or Linux servers from a centralized interface, with data backups stored in a disk-based data repository. Further, CDP’s low-impact asynchronous data backups extend cross-platform for full protection of MySQL databases
“R1Soft CDP fits our needs perfectly” explained Randy McAnally, CEO of Fast Serv. “CDP has an unmatched price-to-features ratio, allowing us to provide an effective and reliable backup solution to our customers at an affordable price.”
Fast Serv also finds great benefit in CDP’s disaster recovery features. In the unfortunate event that client data is damaged or erased, Fast Serv can completely restore the client’s file system with a few clicks of the mouse using CDP’s Bare-Metal Restore feature.
“With the addition of R1Soft Continuous Data Protection, Fast Serv gains more than just a full-featured data backup and disaster recovery solution” said David Wartell, vice president of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies. “With CDP, Fast Serv can increase both sales and ROI even as customer satisfaction improves. Everyone wins.”
