PTisp Implements R1Soft

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – PTisp, the Portuguese hosting and domain registration provider, today released details regarding its implementation of R1Soft Continuous Data Protection (CDP) software.

After successfully utilizing R1Soft CDP for almost two years, the company has decided to extend the scope of CDP backups. PTisp will now offer routine CDP backups with all shared hosting plans, as part of the company’s complete virtual machine (VM) solution, and as an add-on service to dedicated server plans. R1Soft CDP is the only commercial backup software that PTisp offers.

In discussing his company’s selection of CDP, Luis Inverno, PTisp’s chief technology officer, underlined the importance of a reliable backup service. “Backups are a critical component of our type of business. Providing a good, affordable backup service will not only help keep our customers happy, but will also bring us new customers swayed by the trust that with PTisp, their data will be safe and sound.”

In addition to noting CDP’s low-impact backups, which can significantly shorten the duration of server backup windows, PTisp cites the product’s Bare-Metal Restore capability as a key feature. Other draws include CDP’s easy deployment and straightforward management. With CDP, PTisp can create multiple users with specifically assigned privileges, facilitating more efficient and secure administration. Combined with CDP’s cPanel integration, this feature also allows PTisp to place restore capabilities directly into the customers’ hands.

“R1Soft Continuous Data Protection® is an excellent way to bring high-performance data backup to customers” said David Wartell, vice president of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies. “Although CDP’s feature set is robust, the software exceedingly light on resources. The more customers PTisp can comfortably protect with CDP backups, the better off the customers and the company will be.”
