What has of bad in realising backup copies concerning file? First of all, the backup copies concerning file lie down to consume great amounts of resources of the system, being caused that the application interferes with in other processes critics of the servant. In addition to the yield problems, the traditional backup copies also have important limitations. For example, the power is very difficult to recover complete backup copies (beach-metal) of all the servant if this it has the empty disc.

How many does backups keep?

In order to guarantee major security, we kept in a safe space and another Datacenter copies from the data from all our clients during the 2 last months. These copy servers, as well, count on discs in RAID 10 for more security and speed. The space that is needed to store all these copies (is the space that occupies the account of hosting multiplied by 21) is gratuitous: all this service does not have any additional cost for the client.

Other companies of hosting acquire this service to their clients as an extra, in addition to the space who need for a storing all copies, and is not indeed an economic service due to their quality and security.

The backup copies that keep in our systems belong to last the 13 days (one to the executed day at daybreak hour Spanish), and in addition, additional a every week until completing last the 8 weeks. Therefore, it is possible to recover data of up to 2 months back. Altogether they store to 21 backup copies of everything what we lodged in PrackHost, which is not nothing bad.
