Doreo says it’s one of the first hosts internationally using the new technology, which implements nearly continuous data backups of all customer accounts. Doreo previously relied on a backup solution that required entire accounts to be backed up, but with the new solution, the company is able to back up only disk-sectors that have been changed, a feature enabling more frequent backups to me made.
The company says backups will be kept on three separate schedules. Hourly backups will be taken with 14-day retention, and both weekly and monthly backups with 8-week retention. Customers will be able to restore files from any previous backup.
“The cardinal goal in backing up our clients’ data is to offer a true layer of security for everybody, even us,” says Frank Feingold, Doreo Hosting president. “Hard drives fail, scripts break and sometimes customers just go ‘oops’ and delete the wrong file. We need a solid solution that will allow us, and our customers, to quickly recover from these situations.”
