Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – August 29, 2007 – Developer of near-continuous data protection products for Linux and Windows, R1Soft’s CDP Server, now fully supports ReiserFS, a journaling file system and leading alternative to the standard Linux extended file system, known as ext2 or ext3.
David Wartell, Founder and CEO of R1Soft remarked, ”ReiserFS has been the historical default file system for Linux distributions like Novell SuSE, OpenSuSE, and Gentoo. By introducing support for ReiserFS, our software can be used on a significantly larger portion of Linux server deployments. Many of our customers have been waiting for this important next step, and I am glad the waiting is finally over.”
The company’s CDP Server has previously introduced support for an array of Linux distributions running on the Linux 2.4 Kernel or higher. Specifically supported distributions include Fedora Core; Debian Linux; CentOS Linux; OpenVZ; RedHat Enterprise; Virtuozzo; Ubuntu; and custom built vanilla or patched Linux 2.6 kernels. A beta Windows agent of the CDP Server is also available. R1Soft plans to introduce official support for Novell Suse and OpenSuse in the near future.
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 often 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.
R1Soft currently produces Continuous Data Protection solutions designed for data centers, web hosting providers, and other firms using Linux servers. 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.
