Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – April 13, 2007 – Software developer specializing in disk-based backup solutions for web hosts and Internet Service Providers, Righteous Software, has debuted its product line of Continuous Data Protection (CDP) applications, that now support SWSoft Virtuozzo for Linux.
A product used in Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting environments, R1Soft’s Continuous Data Protection Agent for Linux Servers supports SWSoft Virtuozzo versions 3.0 and higher. In addition, the company supports all 2.6 Linux versions and offers installers for most popular 32-bit and 64-bit Linux distributions, including RedHat Enterprise, CentOS, Debian, Fedora, OpenVZ, and Ubuntu.
David Wartell, Founder and CEO of R1Soft remarked, ”While Virtuozzo provides only a limited virtual environment, it is possibly the most popular virtualization software in the web hosting market. Our latest CDP Agent release makes it as easy for Virtuozzo server administrators to use our data protection software, and we look forward to continuing to expand the reach of our near-Continuous Data Protection products.”
Previously, Virtuozzo users had to compile the R1Soft CDP kernel module against their kernel sources using R1Soft’s Custom Kernel Installer. R1Soft’s new installer will streamline the installation of the R1Soft CDP Agent on Virtuozzo installations for Linux. The installer provides pre-compiled Linux CDP device drivers for all the latest 32-bit and 64-bit Virtuozzo kernels.
According to the company, R1Soft’s CDP products diverge significantly from traditional backup technologies, which essentially copy files at intervals from hard disks to another medium, such as a tape drive. These methods only provide data protection on a daily or weekly basis, resulting in large losses of data in the event of a disaster. R1Soft’s CDP Server, however, monitors changes to the disk as they happen, thereby reducing backup windows to seconds or minutes. It also affords even busy servers a significantly higher level of reliability in the event of a disaster, without the consumption of a large amount of system resources.
Founded in 2003, Righteous Software is a provider of disk-based backup solutions, with low cost, scalable and integrated products, featuring products designed to integrate with Linux-based systems.
