Hosting NewsChicago, Illinois — Hostway Corporation, the global Web services leader, announced today the availability of an advanced, near-continuous data protection (CDP) service that enables dedicated server and enterprise customers to protect their critical data from anywhere on the Internet. The new CDP service offers automated, secure backup and Web-based data recovery, ensuring that online businesses and corporations can quickly recover key information in the event of hardware failure, data corruption or a host of unforeseen circumstances.

Hostway has partnered with R1Soft to deliver a complete portfolio of cost effective, customizable backup solutions. Services range from managed backup and recovery to a high-performance, dedicated CDP Center capable of protecting large numbers of servers with customer administered policies and Web-based recovery.

All the solutions provide the ability to: schedule restore points on an ongoing basis, selective file or folder recovery, and true bare metal restore capability to quickly recover an entire server after a system disaster.

Optional off-site configuration leverages the Hostway footprint of data centers and global broadband network to provide an added level of security by separating customers’ data from their production servers.

“Effective data protection and recovery is a critical component of every company’s reliability and disaster planning. Our new backup solutions protect customers’ data with point-in-time snapshots and rolling retention,” said Todd Benjamin, director of enterprise hosting at Hostway. “By combining superior software with our state-of-the-art network and data center infrastructure, we make possible levels of reliability that our customers couldn’t hope to achieve on their own.”

The new data protection and recovery services are the latest in a portfolio of enterprise- class infrastructure and management solutions available to enhance the availability, security and performance of online and corporate IT applications based on the Hostway global network of redundant, state-of-the-art data centers. In addition to data backup, Hostway offers dedicated servers and managed services, firewalls, intrusion detection, load balancing and more.
