Announcing New Backup Services With Lightning-Fast Restore
There is little worse than that feeling when you have lost data from your web hosting account or server.
Whether you use your hosting to run web applications, keep customers updated about your business, attract new customers, or act as a sales channel, it is useless if it fails. It does not matter what caused the downtime – your only priority is getting your data available again as soon as possible.
At JaguarPC, we have the same priority. If hardware fails or data is lost, we feel your frustration and want to restore service immediately. That is why we are making moves toward a more robust backup option
and offering new backup services for every customer.
Read on to find out more about the problems customers face when it comes to backing up and restoring data, and how our impressive new system will help to make these problems a thing of the past.
Addressing common web hosting backup problems
Every moment your web server is offline and your data is inaccessible, you could be losing business. It is our responsibility to give you timely restores that get you back up and running, fast.
Our previous backup solutions were designed to allow one process per account at a time. This meant restoring data could be slow, particularly if multiple accounts tried to restore at the same time.
As part of our new backup services, full restores can take place in just a few hours, with support for more concurrent processes and highly compressed backups that are faster to recover.
In addition, we can be more flexible with the way restores are conducted. It is now possible to restore individual accounts, entire servers, or a range of servers, depending on the nature of the issue that has made data unavailable.
As some of our customers will know, we also encountered problems conducting bare metal restores. A bare metal restore allows us to recover an entire system, without the need to install additional software or an operating system. However, the old version of our backup system simply failed to support the bare metal restores we required.
Now, after rigorous testing, we are confident our new solution will address these problems effectively. A large number of servers have already been updated with this version, and we are currently working hard to update our entire fleet.
We have also made some additional changes to improve the backup services
available from JaguarPC. These changes include:
- New switching for a dedicated backup backend, adding a significant amount of backup storage space to our network
- An announcement policy that keeps you updated about all restores
- A dedicated team of backup experts to help you keep your data safe and recover it where necessary
With these changes in place, you can feel confident that your data is protected and can be quickly recovered in the event of loss, corruption, or hardware failure.
How to keep your web hosting data protected
At Jaguar PC, we take protecting your data seriously. Although you can depend on us to make conducting backups and restores as convenient and dependable as possible, it is also vital you take steps to keep your own data safe.
JaguarPC backup solutions allow you to create manual backups, automatic backups as data changes, or interval-based backups at regular intervals. This can all be done from the convenience of your favorite web browser in just a few clicks.
In addition, you should be regularly creating backups of your own servers
, including Microsoft Exchange and MS SQL servers. Using an online solution, you will be able to access files from anywhere with a web browser, at any time.
Combining a sensible, organized approach to backups with our dramatically updated new backup system, you can be certain your data is safe at all times.
