The Planet Lowers Server Backup Prices

Cliff Boodoosingh on August 28, 2008
HOUSTON, Aug. 27, 2008 – The Planet, the global leader in IT hosting , today announced that it has reduced list pricing on its two server backup products. Effective today, EVault Backup is now priced at $1 per GB, down from $2. Its Network Backup product is now priced at 50 cents per GB, down from $1.

The price reduction follows a recent upgrade to the company’s managed storage infrastructure, which offers customers additional storage space and enhanced performance.

“Storage and backup are increasingly critical for small- and medium-sized companies, since data loss can actually drive a company out of business,” said Rob Walters, The Planet’s general manager of storage and data protection. “Now any organization can protect data – which can literally mean the difference between success and failure – for as little as $5 per month. At this affordable rate, there’s no excuse to leave critical data unprotected.”

EVault Backup features a comprehensive, intuitive interface, with rich backup functionality from data-protection industry leader EVault. Planet Alpha’s Network Backup provides archiving space available directly through customer applications and tools, and it features standard protocols for ease of access.

Both solutions are available in 10GB to 80GB or larger capacities for mission-critical environments.

Through Sep. 30, 2008, new orders of EVault Backup and Network Backup are free for the first 90 days. For more information, please visit the Web site at .
