Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – (The Hosting News) – May 29, 2009 – Drift2 Web Services, Inc. has deployed R1Soft Continuous Data Protection technology and will offer automatic data backup for all shared and reseller hosting customers at no additional charge.
Greg Pruitt, CEO of Drift2 Web Services, Inc. remarked, ”R1Soft offers a strong solution that meets our needs and enables us to deliver a backup service without charging our clients a penny more. It’s easy to use, fast, and very scalable. As a web hosting provider entrusted with massive amounts of customer data, we feel confident with this in our toolbox.”
Customer data will be protected through two separate data backup processes. Hourly backups, retained for 24 hours, will protect databases against data loss or corruption. Drift2 will also run daily backups, retained for 14 days, to protect against catastrophic data loss disasters. Drift2 will fully-manage the new backups.
Unlike other backup technologies, R1Soft’s CDP stores only incremental changes in data sectors in each new restore point. This enables Drift2 to increase backup frequency and retain restore points for longer periods of time, while still minimizing cost. In comparison, Drift2 was only able to store data backups for about a day before adopting R1Soft CDP.
Shared web hosting plans from Drift2 start at just $4.95 per month for personal hosting and range to $49.95 per month for corporate hosting packages.
Since April 2003, Drift2 has provided award-winning shared and reseller hosting services to businesses and individuals in the United States and abroad. It currently supports the Linux platform and operates an H-Sphere powered cluster.
