Nobody can afford to lose data, especially if you run a business or a popular blog that you have spent time and money working on. All of Hawkesbury Websites dedicated servers have a Data LockBox attached to them for that extra layer of security and piece of mind.
Main Benfits of our server Data LockBoxes:
Bare-Metal Disaster Recovery
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.
Sector based backups increase throughput and reduce overhead. Servers can be fully operational with minimal performance impact during backups. Backups can usually be performed at anytime, even on busy servers.
Our technology provides consistent point-in-time system-wide backup images.
Near Continuous Backups
During normal host operation, the PWPH’s CDP Agent keeps a journal of disk changes. Incremental backups know what sectors on the disk have changed before the backup operation even starts. This eliminates the need for file-by-file or block-by-block comparisons every backup.
Incremental sector based backups ignore unused portions of the disk and copy only the disk sectors that have changed since the last backup. This when used with traditional compression, reduces backup storage by as much as 90% when compared to a traditional system wide, file-by-file backup.
During backup and restore data is verified using MD5 checksums.
Even knowing we have a fair bit of added protection attached to our servers we still recommend that all our hosting customers create their own account backups within your hosting control panel (cPanel). It’s always a good idea to store a site backup locally on your home computer, and do it regularly.
