Backing up your data is a task that must be done regularly, but it sometimes gets neglected. Your whole operation could vanish into thin air with one unfortunately timed hard drive crash. For some businesses, not having a disaster recovery plan can be the end; 1 out of every 2 businesses never return after a data disaster. Enterprises that survive and thrive have a response to disaster BEFORE it happens.
March 31st, World Backup Day, is a reminder to get you in the habit of backup, so your data and business is always available. Therefore, on this most sacred of holidays, let’s discuss server backups, with some help from HostDime services.
First of all, 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 help 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.
