Improved Server Backup Policy

Friday, December 6th, 2013

At simplewebhosting.co.uk we’ve always worked hard to take care of your data. Every night complete backups are taken of your hosting account and these are stored on a separate hard drive in the server along with a weekly and a monthly backup meaning we always have three different backups available should anything go wrong.

Whilst this has worked well over the years we no longer feel it offers enough protection and we are pleased to announce that we’ve moved to a continuous data protection (CDP) service. CDP is a nearly continuous data protection system capable of providing multiple recovery points per day. This has numerous benefits over the old operation:

  • At any point in time the CDP will hold ten twelve-hourly backups, two weekly backups and two monthly backups making it simple to roll-back your website.
  • You’ll be able to restore files and data yourself from within your cPanel. Just look for the ‘R1Soft Restore Backups’ icon.
  • In the event of a catastrophic disk failure (of which we’ve experienced a handful over the years) we’ll be able to restore a whole server’s data to a new drive in around a couple of hours. Currently this process can take up to a day!
  • The CDP uses fewer system resources than the old backup system resulting in much less strain on your server.

The best thing about all of this is it won’t cost you a penny more. We believe strongly that although we provide budget hosting we don’t provide a budget service.
