What is R1Soft Continuous Data Protection?
R1soft is a remote backup solution based on CDP (continuous data protection) architecture, providing neat and clean data protection for all of your data.
Can I decide how often my data is backed up and kept for?
You have complete control over when backups are made, including daily, weekly and/or monthly, as well as over what is backed up. So, for example, if you want daily database and web files backups kept for 7 days and a monthly file backup that is kept for a year, that would provide you with a potential 12 monthly file backups and the last 7 days of database and web files.
Can I download my backups to my computer?
Absolutely, you can access the R1Soft web control panel and download the backups you have created, alternatively contact our support team for help with this.
How much backup space do I need?
This can often be difficult to calculate. The best way to work this out is to first decide what is being backed up, how long you will be retaining the backups and how much data you expect to change between each backup.
To make sure that you receive the most efficient backup, you can track the changes between each backup. The example below assumes there is 10GB of data with 1GB of changes each day, with the backups being kept for 7 days. This would work out as: 10+1+1+1+1+1+1 = 16GB space needed. This would require a 25GB plan. Please contact our sales team if you need any help with this, we are always here to help.
Can I backup the entire server? (Bare Metal)
Yes, this is a high-performance alternative to file-by-file backups which bypasses the file system and streams blocks directly to storage. The restoration of large file system can be performed significantly faster by comparison.
Can I compress or encrypt my backups?
Yes, it is possible to compress and/or encrypt the backup data. When scheduling the backup tasks, you can decide if you want to compress or encrypt the data.
Can I backup multiple servers to a single R1Soft backup account?
What happens if I run out of space? Can I easily increase the capacity of my backup?
You will receive an email notification before you reach the capacity of your backup. At which point, you will have two options:
1) Reduce the space required for your R1Soft backups by deleting files, reducing how long backups are kept for or reducing what data is backed up.
2) Increase the size of your backup plan. This is a quick and easy process, with plans available from 25GB up to a massive 900GB. If you require more help or a larger backup, please contact our sales team who are always happy to help.
