What is R1Soft Incremental Backups?
This is an incremental block style backup system with a rich and scalable feature set. Using their Continuous Data Protection technology server data is backed up at the block level, bypassing the file system and reading data directly from the disk or volume.
This allows you to have backups stored for your cPanel hosting accounts up to every 15 minutes on a separate point of failure which can be read and restored from ondemand by you or your customers with minimal load overheads on your server.
Features of R1Soft Incremental Server Backups:
Continuous Data Protection™
Backup server data at the block level bypassing the file system and reading data directly from the disk or volume. Block-level backup provides advantages over traditional file backup technologies including the speed of completing a backup operation and a drastic reduction in disk and network I/O. Backups are configured to run every 6 hours.
Block-level backups bypass the file system and read the data directly from the Disk or Volume. This means that you are able to run fast, performance-friendly backups regardless of the number of files you’re trying to backup. Block-level backups also always have built-in support for open file backup and snapshot features, allowing you to get the most out of your storage space and resources.
Recovery points can be replicated to offsite storage using Amazon Glacier or FTP/FTPS. Archive recovery points can be restored easily from the Server Backup Manager user interface.
Disk Safe Verification
Monitors your data to make sure it’s safe from corruption. Disk Safe Verification can be scheduled to run periodically or on demand detecting and alerting you in the event of corruption. This reduces the need for test restores, and gives you confidence in the integrity and restore-ability of your data.
Recover large file systems or entire servers fast with Bare-Metal Restore. Granular file restore. Restore even while a backup job is running.
Data Retention Policies
Define a replication goal (for example, every 15 minutes) and how many recovery points to retain. Old recovery points are automatically merged and their storage is recycled.
Control Panel Interface
Secure local authentication of users. Enable user self-service backup and restore. Integrate with popular Linux Control Panels (Such as cPanel/WHM).
