(Ping! Zine) Melbourne Server Hosting, a leader in managed hosting services and colocation, announced today it has partnered with R1Soft, maker of Continuous Data Protection for Linux and Windows, to power its UltraVault™ Managed Backup Service.
UltraVault™, which Melbourne h as offered for several years, will now utilize R1Soft CDP to offer affordable and flexible remote data backup for both Linux and Windows servers. Leveraging R1Soft’s unique technology, UltraVault™ offers multiple levels of offsite data protection, including daily backups, hourly backups, open-file backups, live MySQL database backups, and Continuous Data Protection. Customers can also take advantage of Bare-Metal Disaster Recovery, which enables servers to be restored directly from disk-based backup — eliminating the need to partition the drive and install an operating system.
“We wanted to have an ‘off-the-shelf’ backup solution that we could offer to our clients, whether they take fully managed servers from us, or simply colocate their servers in our datacenters. It was important that we had a solution that would work equally well with both Windows and Linux servers, and offered the utmost in scalability and reliability,” said Melbourne Managing Director Daniel Keighron-Foster. “R1Soft CDP goes beyond what a conventional daily backup solution can offer, and we have been able to introduce dramatic service-level improvements as a result.”
Customers with self-managed dedicated servers, virtual servers, or colocation can add UltraVault™ protection for a £50 one-time setup charge. Thereafter, customers pay £5 monthly per server and from £0.50 monthly per protected gigabyte. UltraManaged™ dedicated and virtual server customers pay no setup or per-server fees.
“Melbourne’s implementation of R1Soft CDP leverages the vast array of features and distinctive technology that has made our solution attractive for thousands of hosting providers across the globe. By taking advantage of support for both Linux and Windows servers, Melbourne has created an innovative data protection solution that saves both time and money,” said David Wartell, vice president of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies.
As a member of the exclusive R1Soft Hosting Partner Program, Melbourne will receive priority technical support, progressive volume licensing discounts on software, and access to a wide variety of sales and marketing resources. Melbourne will also receive advance access to new software updates and other new features.
