R1Soft to Showcase at Cloud Computing Expo

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – R1Soft, developer of cloud backup and disaster recovery software, announced today that it will exhibit its high-performance Continuous Data Protection® (CDP) backup software for Windows and Linux servers in the cloud at the 2011 Cloud Computing Expo, to be held June 6 through June 9 at the Javits Convention Center in New York.

Long backup windows and diminished storage performance, caused by growth in data size and demands placed on storage hardware by virtual machines, are key cloud backup concerns. R1Soft Continuous Data Protection ably addresses these concerns with its asynchronous replication technology, which pinpoints exactly the changed blocks or deltas that must be read from disk during backup. By skipping the file system, CDP shrinks cloud backup windows from hours to minutes, minimizing the impact of backup and archiving on storage and performance in the process.

Further strengthening the protection CDP offers to data in the cloud is the new CDP Disk Safe, available in the 3.0 generation of CDP. The 3.0 Disk Safe is an industrial strength, on-disk backup repository that recovers automatically from crashes and power loss. The 3.0 Disk Safe can be easily moved or copied across most disk-based storage.

Other benefits of R1Soft CDP backup for servers in the cloud include:

• Off-site data center to data center backup for the cloud
• Improvement in recovery point objectives with cloud backups as frequent as every hour
• High scalability to accommodate continued data growth
• Bare-Metal Restore for fast recovery of large file systems

“Cloud Computing Expo is a perfect platform for R1Soft to further the discussion on cloud backups – and in particular, how painful they can be for so many companies” said David Wartell, vice president of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies. “More than 1,000 cloud infrastructure providers have already implemented CDP. We want every other organization with servers in the cloud to know that CDP can vastly improve their backup and archiving performance as well. Cloud Expo is an excellent opportunity to convey that message.”

Those attending the 2011 Cloud Expo can visit R1Soft in booth 146 in the exhibit hall for demonstrations of the company’s Continuous Data Protection software. For additional information about R1Soft CDP for servers in the cloud, visit http://www.r1soft.com/.
