Web Hosting NewsHOUSTON, TX – R1Soft, developer of Continuous Data Protection® (CDP) – high performance disk-to-disk backup software for Windows and Linux servers in the Cloud – today announced the first release of CDP 3.0 Enterprise Edition. Enterprise Edition is the flagship product in R1Soft’s line of high performance backup software for hosting and Cloud infrastructure.

CDP 3.0 Enterprise Edition includes the latest in disk-based backup storage capabilities. The new 3.0 Disk Safe uses on-disk journaling to protect archived backup data from corruption caused by crashes and power failures in the data center. This kind of industrial strength storage is not found in any other disk-to-disk backup software. The new Disk Safe is especially well suited for the growing storage demands of data centers, capable of storing up to 64 Terabytes of backup data and thousands of recovery points for each protected server.

R1Soft’s Continuous Data Protection® backup software uses a form of asynchronous data replication that shortens backup windows from hours to minutes. With new file and folder excludes, CDP 3.0 offers the added flexibility of excluding individual files and folders from the block-level replication process.

“To take CDP to the next level, we went back to the drawing board and re-engineered the software from the ground-up” said David Wartell, vice president of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies. “This first 3.0 Enterprise Edition release is intended to get the new performance improvements and industrial strength disk storage capabilities into the hands of our customers as quickly as possible.”

One such performance improvement in CDP 3.0 is Bare-Metal Restore (BMR). The best method for quickly and efficiently reestablishing large file systems, BMR is a key tool for disaster recovery. In CDP 3.0 BMR is significantly faster than previous versions, thanks to the new Disk Safe and by taking advantage of the latest high-performance disk I/O capabilities in 2.6 Linux and 2008 R2 Windows servers.

Additional features still to come in future releases of CDP 3.0 Enterprise Edition include web hosting control panel features, file archiving, and Disk Safe encryption.

“Even in its first release, CDP 3.0 Enterprise Edition already reflects significantly improved performance, and there is much more to come” concluded Wartell.
