More Than 1,000 Cloud and Hosting Providers Choose R1Soft to Back Up More Than 200,000 Servers Worldwide

R1Soft Continuous Data Protection Solution Uses Asynchronous Replication Technology to Provide Faster Backups, Increase Value of Cloud Offering

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - R1Soft, developer of Continuous Data Protection® (CDP) backup and recovery software for servers in the cloud, today announced that more than 1,000 cloud and hosting providers have chosen R1Soft's CDP solution to back up their customers' vital data on more than 200,000 servers.

"Our CDP solution has quickly become the solution of choice for hosting and cloud infrastructure providers who must ensure their customers' data is secure and readily available," said David Wartell, founder of R1Soft. "CDP is unique because it addresses the number one performance challenge posed by backups -- disk I/O. To increase server performance and reduce storage requirements, CDP employs R1Soft's asynchronous replication technology; after the initial CDP replica, CDP efficiently reads and replicates changes to data at the block-level. As a result, CDP backups complete in significantly less time, with minimal impact to performance."

"Our clients' main objections about cloud backup, including long backup windows and diminished performance, were eliminated once we chose R1Soft's CDP for our offering. By using R1Soft CDP, we could incrementally scale our backup infrastructure as our virtual server backup business grew," said Wayne Lansdowne, Chief Systems Architect, Applied Innovations. "Our ability to offer a time-saving, high-performance backup solution to our clients has positively affected the growth of our customer base."

With more than 200,000 servers protected worldwide, R1Soft CDP is an affordable high-performance disk-to-disk server backup software for Windows and Linux servers, featuring a central management and data repository. After completing one initial replica of all desired data, CDP can complete virtual full Windows and Linux server backups in just minutes.

In related news, R1Soft also announced today that managed service provider Applied Innovations Corp. is using R1Soft's CDP Enterprise Edition to back up its Microsoft Hyper-V cloud servers. To read the press release visit
