Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – May 19, 2008 – Developer of near-continuous data protection products for Linux and Windows, R1Soft, is offering its data protection solution to users of the cPanel/WHM hosting control panel system.
The new partnership between R1Soft and cPanel, will offer control panel license holders, usually web hosting providers with many clients, the opporutnity to receive volume discounts on R1Soft’s Continuous Data Protection software, which offers disk-based, near-continuous data backups.
cPanel license holders also receive access to a variety of marketing and sales tools from R1Soft, so they can increase revenue by offering Continuous Data Protection to their own clients.
Dave Koston, Vice President of Operations at cPanel noted, ”Providing easy and useful backups is a requirement to stay competitive in the hosting industry. R1Soft takes backups to the next level and we want to make sure that our customers have easy access to that technology. With the ability for users to have access to their high-availability backups right from cPanel, along with the performance and ease of use of R1Soft’s products, it’s a no brainer for our companies to forge this partnership.”
R1Soft’s data protection solution currently integrates into all major hosting control panels, including cPanel. Administrators and end users alike can easily manage backups and restore files through a fast-loading online interface. In addition, R1Soft’s MySQL module allows information in a database, as specific as a certain table to be resorted in the event of a disaster or accidental data loss by the server administrator.
David Wartell, Vice President of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies Inc. remarked, ”As a leading provider of hosting automation software, cPanel makes an ideal partner as we continue to introduce our next-generation data protection solution to thousands of hosting providers. This partnership will make it easier for cPanel’s large user base to move away from age-old tar and rsync backups and transition to near-Continuous backup technology. We will be working closely with cPanel over the coming months to better integrate our products so we can offer more unique features to cPanel users.”
Through May 31, 2008 cPanel license holders exclusively can take advantage of R1Soft’s cPack, offering an introductory collection of Continuous Data Protection software.
