This has already been an active hurricane season, with Hurricane Harvey devastating Texas and now Hurricane Irma about to touch down in Florida. Read our Hurricane Irma statement on what we are doing to prepare for the storm.
Backing up your data is a task that must be done regularly, but it sometimes gets neglected. Your whole operation could disappear with one unfortunately timed hard drive crash, or some sort of natural disaster.
For some businesses, not having a disaster recovery plan can be lethal. One out of every two businesses never return after a data disaster. Businesses that survive and thrive have a response to disaster BEFORE it happens.
Therefore now is as good as time as any to discuss server backups, especially related to HostDime services.
HostDime’s Backup Policy
It is your responsibility to create and manage your own backups. As no backup method is 100% fail-proof, HostDime does not guarantee backups. Refer to our Service Level Agreement for our full legal backup policy. The creation, managing, and restoration of backups is the responsibility of the client.
HostDime Remote Storage Service
HostDime offers in-house remote storage service as an add-on to your hosting account. This helps maximize redundancy and improve overall performance with your current server build.
Mount your remote storage service as a drive on your VPS or Dedicated Server to push and pull data from your account. Access and manage your remote storage service including expandable disk quota, FTP, SFTP, SCP, NFS, CIFS, and RSYNC.
Upon purchasing, you can choose which HostDime storage location you’d like to store your data in. HostDime has remote storage systems in the United States, United Kingdom, and Brazil; choose the facility closest to your server, office, or home for the fastest transfer speeds.
Whether you are a HostDime client or not, take advantage of our disaster recovery service and store your data in any of our high security data centers located around the globe. Save and recover all your files and software hassle-free.
Create a future plan catered to your needs. Maybe you want to have your data off-location in case of a natural or man made disaster at your business. Maybe you want HostDime to perform your businesses’ data backups every night.
Just like our backup storage service, you can have your data on a redundant file system at any of our global facilities.
