Toronto, Canada – (The Hosting News) – March 23, 2006 – Canada Web Hosting has partnered with Syncsort, Inc. to provide Canadian companies with enterprise-class disaster recovery solutions via its local and offsite backup networks in Toronto and Vancouver.
Canada Web Hosting is using Syncsort’s Backup Express for the new service. Data backups and recoveries are now included with every managed hosting solution provided by Canada Web Hosting.
According to the company, the large number of heterogeneous server environments that must be backed up necessitate a very robust, high performance solution from a data protection vendor with a proven record in the managed hosting industry.
Syncsort provides this solution with Backup Express’s file and block-level back up technology. Canada Web Hosting tested the product and came out with excellent management and reporting tools that have proven very easy to use. As a result, not only has the reliability of Canada Web Hosting’s backup service improved for both its Windows and Linux servers but average local and remote data restore times have been significantly reduced. This quick turnaround is key as Canada Web Hosting’s enterprise customers often require disaster and data recovery timelines built into their Service Agreements.
