Our Continuous Data Protection (CDP) solution is powered by R1Soft, a leader in server backups. R1Soft’s CDP is a server software application that enables disk-based protection and disaster recovery for Linux servers and workstations running Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems. CDP Server protects disk volume data over the network storing point-in- time snapshots in disk-based storage. Benefits include:

Near Continuous Backups
Enjoy the peace of mind of a backup solution capable of providing hundreds of recovery points per day, scheduled as little as 5 or 10 minutes apart. During normal host operation, R1Soft’s CDP Agent keeps a journal of disk changes. Incremental backups know what sectors on the disk have changed before the backup even starts, eliminating the need for file-by-file or block-by-block comparisons every backup.

Bare Metal Disaster Recovery
Restore servers directly from disk-based backup. Unlike traditional backup software, there is no need to first partition your drive and install the operating system.

High Performance
Reduce overhead and increase throughput with sector-based backups. Servers can be fully operational with minimal performance impact during backups. Perform backups almost anytime, even on busy servers.

Compression
Reduce backup storage by as much as 90% when combining our backup solution with standard compression. Incremental sector- based backups copy only the disk sectors that have changed since the last backup instead of traditional file-by-file backup.

End-to-End Strong Encryption
Protect data continuously by using RSA keys that encrypt data while in storage and during network transmission. Decryption during a restore is only possible when the encryption key holder enters their pass phrase.

Remote Administration
Manage backups, restores, and logs remotely using our simple Web-based interface.

Data Integrity
Maintain the highest levels of data integrity. During backup and restore, data is verified using MD5 checksums.

Snapshots and Small Backup Windows
View consistent point-in-time system-wide backup images. Complete incremental backups within minutes, because only changed disk sectors are copied between backups.

Open File Backups
Protect open files with a solution that includes built-in support for backing up open files.
