Self Managed 7 days Incremental Backup offering flexibility and data security by Eukhost Ltd.

Leeds, United Kingdom, November 10, 2011 --(PR.com)-- eUKhost Ltd. (www.eukhost.com), one of UK's premier web hosting service providers, announced an enhancement to their current services by offering R1Soft Continuous Data protection (CDP 3.0) backups and archiving with all of its shared and reseller hosting plans.

The collaboration between R1Soft and eUKhost Ltd. Has enabled them to offer such a solution where even the customers using shared and reseller hosting can have access and protect their data by backing it up on offsite servers without the need to pay any additional charges. By integrating CDP within cPanel, users will find it easier to manage the backup files and folders and choose between backup file download, bare metal restore and specific files/folder restore further enhancing customer satisfaction, said a representative from eUKhost.

"Because CDP fits appropriately to our requirements and reduces the overall impact over the disk loads and the time taken for a complete backup, we decided to pass over the benefit to our customers using Shared and Reseller Hosting. We have used R1Soft CDP3 backup system for other packages such as Dedicated Hosting, Cloud Servers and VPS's and are highly satisfied with its performance, hence we decided to introduce it with our low-end packages as well," said Stanley Jones, Business Development Incharge at eUKhost Ltd.

The new backup system creates restore points and takes a snapshot of the changes done on an individual account which are stored on the server for a period of one week. Being an incremental process, the oldest instance is overwritten with a latest file, enabling the server to avoid getting overloaded with backup files hence saving on the hardware resource utilization. So, if a particular file gets deleted accidentally or due to any other reasons, users can restore the backup instances choosing from any of the restore points created during the past week. Only 7 days retention period is set and cannot be customized according to individual needs.

"Prior to implementing this feature, users had to contact our support department or raise a ticket regarding restoration of specific files and folders. Our new system cuts this process entirely, saving precious time of our users as they can carry out the restore on their own and at their convenience," said Stanley Jones.

Until the introduction of such a service on Shared and Reseller plans, eUKhost offered R1Soft CDP 3.0 backup service only with Dedicated Hosting, Cloud Servers and VPS's on both Windows and Linux platforms. However, with this introduction each user would now get the capability of managing the website backups on their own.

"We take data protection very seriously and value its protection and availability, hence we are highly pleased to introduce this service across all the web hosting packages," says Robert King, CEO of eUKhost Ltd.
