Chicago, Illinois – (The Hosting News) – February 11, 2009 – Developer of near-continuous data protection products for Linux and Windows, R1Soft, has been chosen by virtual hosting, dedicated servers, colocation, and DDoS protection firm, Gigenet, for R1Soft’s Continuous Data Protection solution.
Brandon Hale, Director of Sales and Marketing for Gigenet remarked, ”Data protection is a non-negotiable, absolute necessity for any enterprise doing business online. In adding R1Soft CDP, our clients will be able to protect their data affordably and easily. By charging only per protected gigabyte with no startup costs, data protection in our datacenter is flexible, scalable, and ultimately, practical for businesses, large and small. That gives us a real edge against our competitors, and as we continue to grow, we can boast an important new selling point.”
R1Soft as the developer of Continuous Data Protection (CDP), welcomes Gigenet, to offer a robust, full-scale data protection solution for its clients.
R1Soft’s next-generation data protection solution, which offers near-continuous disk-based data backup for Linux and Windows servers, will be deployed fully in Gigenet’s Arlington Heights, Ill. private datacenter facility. Dedicated server and colocation clients may add CDP as needed to their servers in the facility, paying only $.50 per protected gigabyte with no charge for additional CDP agents. Virtual hosting clients are fully protected with CDP automatically at no additional charge.
Gigenet will offer R1Soft’s CDP for MySQL database module, allowing even busy MySQL databases to be protected in real-time without a notable impact on server performance. True-Granular Restore allows server administrators to recover databases as needed – restoring data as small as just one row or table in a database in just seconds.
