FEATURES

High Performance Backups

HIGH PERFORMANCE DISK BASED BACKUPS

With traditional weekly full backups and daily incrementals, if you need to recover, you must recover the last full backup then all the daily incrementals until you reach the point in time you want. With Continuous Data Protection Virtual Full Backups after the initial replica of the data, each subsequent replica only backups block level changes or deltas, and each backup is a fully recoverable point in time Recovery Point. When you need to recover, you point and click on the last recovery point you need to recover and that’s it.

Store Backups on Any Reliable Disk Storage

Store and Archive CDP Virtual Full Backup replicas onto any disk based storage. Second hard drives, network shares, NAS, CIFS, SAN, ISCSI, etc

  • Use existing disk storage
  • Cost effective
  • No dedicated CDP Server or Repository Required
  • Can be used for archiving. Store up to thousands of recovery points
  • Can even store recovery points on the same disk you are replicating to rollback accidental deletes
  • Disk safes can be transported with USB drives
  • USB drives can be used to perform on-site initial replicas (first backups) to start offsite replication with CDP enteprise edition 3.0
  • USB drives can be used to transport a disk safe on-site from the off-site data center for restore purposes

Note: USB drives should Not be used regularly as every day primary backup storage due to the unreliable nature of USB drives.


Short Backups

AMAZING SHORT BACKUPS FOR WINDOWS & LINUX

After completing your initial replica, CDP can reduce your backup windows from hours to minutes. Improve recovery point objectives by replicating your data to disk-based archive storage up to every 15 minutes. Reduce the impact of backups on server load.


Improved Security

IMPROVED SECURITY POINT OBJECTIVE WITH CDP

Recovery Points – ‘Point in Time’ Volume Snapshots
Every time CDP creates a new recovery point and replicates deltas it takes a point-in-time file system snapshot using Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy. This means your file system is synchronized and made consistent before the deltas are replicated. Unlike traditional backup methods changes made to your server after the snapshot is performed never appear in your recovery point disk image.


Cross Platform

CROSS PLATFORM – WINDOWS & LINUX

The CDP Server Software can be installed on either a Microsoft Windows Server or Linux Server. Regardless of O/S selection for the CDP Server both Windows and Linux computers running the CDP Agent program can be protected. Both Linux and Windows data protection are managed from a single web interface on the CDP Server.


Web Based Administration

CENTRALIZED WEB-BASED ADMINISTRATION

The CDP web-based interface is full featured and easy-to-use remote management of your Windows server backups. In addition to the policy management and reporting you can browse, download, and restore files from your recovery points using an explorer style interface. Easily manage recovery points and Disk Safes using bulk edits. See detailed progress of replication and restore jobs as they run.


Client and Server

CLIENT & SERVER COMPONENTS OF CDP SERVER 2.0

CDP Server works by installing a CDP Agent (client) on the Windows or Linux target server to be protected. The target server could be a physical or virtual machine. The CDP Agents communicate over a PGP key secured TCP/IP network or Internet connection with a CDP Server data repository.


User Interface

EASY TO USE WEB-BASED USER INTERFACE

Manage your Digital Pacific provided CDP Server from a web browser. Even browse and restore files from anywhere with simple browser based access. Manage policy, quotas, users, and initiate restores.

Store Recovery

STORE RECOVERY POINTS ON DIGITAL PACIFIC STORAGE SERVERS

Store and Archive CDP Virtual Full Backups onto Digital Pacific SAN’s over a gigabit network with Jumbo frames. This means that you can restore your data back on to your hosting account, VPS or Dedicated server at lightning speeds.


Secure Data

SECURE DATA MANAGEMENT & ARCHIVING

Data on the CDP Server is stored in R1Soft’s patent-pending Disk Safe storage format. This on-disk format enables CDP Server to archive point-in-time recovery images for long periods of time using as little disk space as possible. For each configured backup schedule a rotation policy can be defined. This policy specifies the number of different incrementals to keep for each schedule. Old recovery points are automatically deleted according to the policy. This system of minutely, hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly recovery point management is flexible enough for all needs.

  • synchronize every 10 minutes – retain the last 48 recovery points
  • synchronize hourly – retain the last 48 recovery points
  • synchronize daily at midnight – retain the last 7 recovery points
  • synchronize weekly on Sundays – retain the last 4 recovery points
  • synchronize monthly on the 1st – retain the last 48 recovery points

Such a policy can be automatically managed by CDP Server. In addition to policy based management any unwanted recovery point can be deleted by an administrator at any time. Selected recovery points can also be locked to prevent automatic deletion by a policy.


Strong Encryption

END-TO-END STRONG ENCRYPTION

CDP Server supports strong encryption of disk data using RSA keys and the blowfish cipher. During a synchronization data is encrypted (and optionally compressed) on the agent and sent to the server over the network where it is stored in encrypted form. The data can only be decrypted using a RSA key protected with a passphrase. During a bare-metal restore disk sectors are decrypted on the fly at the agent.


Reporting

THE RESTORE PROCESS

In the unfortunate instance where a server has become inoperable and unable to be recovered, we need to restore sites back on to the server as quick as possible. We utilise a bare metal restore operation for quick deployment. See the difference between a “Traditional Server restore process” and the Digital Pacific “Bare-Metal Server restore process”.

THE TRADITIONAL

RESTORE PROCESS

1. Step: Repair or Replace Failed Hardware if Necessary

2. Step: Re-Install the Operating System
