NikanHost Selects R1Soft

(Ping! Zine) – Dedicated and VPS web hosting provider NikanHost announced today they will use R1Soft Continuous Data Protection® (CDP) technology to offer a value-added backup service for Dedicated Server clients with data hosted on Linux and Windows servers.

With the new data protection service, NikanHost introduces customers to reliable, near-continuous backups and bare-metal restores. Fully integrated with cPanel, CDP backups can be easily accessed and self-managed by customers through R1Soft’s easy-to-use Web interface. The Bare-Metal Restore feature allows servers to be instantly rebuilt from scratch and restored to any point-in-time snapshot.

“NikanHost has been on a quest for a backup product that’s not only reliable, but one that also makes it simple for our customers to self-manage their backups,” said Ali Mirzakhani, Technical Manager at NikanHost. “We are happy to finally have discovered a data protection solution that’s reliable and easy to use.”

R1Soft CDP is disk-based software that reads hard disk volumes at the block level, bypassing the file system to enhance performance and cut recovery times.  CDP also possesses the innovative ability to only record data changes made after the last backup, creating smaller backup windows and faster backups.

“We look forward to working with NikanHost as it rolls out the new backup service. R1Soft CDP will offer users reliable backups and the autonomy to access and manage them through an easy-to-use interface,” said David Wartell, vice president of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies, Inc.  

NikanHost also has enrolled in the R1Soft Hosting Partner Program (R1HPP) to leverage a wide marketing resource collection among other exclusive benefits. Designed for providers, the R1HPP will help NikanHost educate its clients about the many features and advantages of R1Soft Continuous Data Protection®.
