Portland, Oregon – (The Hosting News) – July 23, 2008 – Developer of near-continuous data protection products for Linux and Windows, R1Soft, has welcomed Managed Services Provider, Opus Interactive, into its value-added Hosting Partner Program.
The partnership opportunity is designed to enable more effective deployment of R1Soft’s next-generation Continuous Data Protection backup and restore technology, which allows data to be backed up on a constant basis.
Jeremy Sherwood, an Executive with Opus Interactive Business Solutions noted, ”R1Soft’s data protection solution has helped us solve several problems created by our previous system and allows us to more affordably offer a very robust solution to our Dedicated Hosting customers. We have been especially impressed by the flexibility of R1Soft’s solution and the scalability across a variety of platforms and server environments. It it’s a natural fit for our business model and we look forward to full implementation.”
As a member of the R1Soft Hosting Partner Program, Opus Interactive receives a variety of sales and marketing resources from R1Soft, as well as priority technical support and access to new software updates before they become available to the general public. Opus Interactive will provide Continuous Data Protection as a premium value-added service to its Dedicated Hosting customers, using Windows, Linux or FreeBSD operating systems. Pricing starts at $5/monthly per protected gigabyte of data, plus an initial setup fee.
Continuous Data Protection is unique in its ability to provide near-Continuous data protection that virtually eliminates the lag time between restore points. With traditional backup technology, there is a delay hours, days or even weeks between restore points, resulting in significant data loss in the event of a disaster. But with Continuous Data Protection, data is protected around the clock. With but a minimal impact on server resources, Continuous Data Protection is presented as an ideal solution for even busy servers.
