Data is the most crucial element on any server, as a result we have developed a layered approach to preserving our customer's data. It starts with RAID only DELL servers, meaning a harddrive can fail completely and there will be no data loss or interruption of service. With that we couple or incremental backup service which stores daily, weekly, and monthly copies of our customer's servers. The data isn't compressed or archived and directory structures are entirely preserved, which means the fastest possible access to backed up data.
Our backup solution runs entirely on RAID harddrives, meaning data is instantly available and redundant. No time is lost trying to locate outdated tape drives, nor is time wasted to uncompress archives. All data is stored uncompressed, preserving the directory structure on your server.
Our incremental backup architecture lets us store daily, weekly, and monthly copies of your entire server. By transferring only new or changed files the backups are performed with low resource consumption.
We store everything necessary to rebuild your server from scratch. In the absolute worst case scenario we can install a brand new server and using our backup solution restore all of your content and configurations to get you back online.
A dead harddrive shouldn't cause downtime, which is why all of our servers come with RAID1 standard. Each server is equipped with two harddrives setup as mirrors of each other. If either drive fails, the other automatically takes over. The defective drive can then be replaced and RAID will automatically begin to rebuild the data on it. All of this is done with 0 downtime and without the need to power off the server.
