San Francisco, California – (The Hosting News) – September 11, 2008 – Colocation hosting provider, ServePath, after nearly two years of research and testing of various backup technologies, has partnered with developer of Continuous Data Protection (CDP) technology, R1Soft.
ServePath will replace its existing managed backup service with R1Soft?s CDP technology, available for both Linux and Windows platforms. Clients pay a small setup fee for each server and a variable monthly fee, depending upon the amount of data they wish to back up.
ServePath clients with dedicated servers will be able to utilize the next-generation data backup service, offering near-continuous disk-based data backup that virtually eliminates the threat of catastrophic data loss in the event of a disaster. R1Soft’s technology also provides exceptional protection for busy MySQL databases by continually monitoring for changes and updating the most recent restore point.
Telemachus Luu, Director Production Engineering for ServePath noted, ”Our team evaluated other backup offerings from a variety of vendors, but R1Soft has consistently stood out with its Continuous Data Protection technology, allowing us to offer our customers near-continuous backups of their servers. In addition, R1Soft was one of the only vendors that supported a heterogeneous environment of Windows and various flavors of Linux, a feature that allows us to comprehensively deploy this technology in our facility.”
In conjunction with the implementation of R1Soft?s technology, ServePath has also joined the R1Soft Hosting Partner Program, a value-added opportunity designed to help ServePath most effectively offer data backup services. As a member of the program, ServePath receives access to a variety of sales and marketing resources from R1Soft, as well as priority technical support and first-access to new software updates and patches.
David Wartell, Vice President of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies, Inc. remarked, ”As an R1Soft Hosting Partner, ServePath will benefit from greater exposure and more direct access to our development and marketing teams. We look forward to working with ServePath as partners in the coming months and years, as ServePath continues to put a greater focus on our data protection technology.”
