    Better and Cheaper than R1Soft Backup?

    Does anyone know of R1Soft competitor?
    Something Cheaper and Better or at least as good?

    Or is there an opensource ready to run version that one can use even if not as good as R1Soft?
    Please share.

    Thanks!

    You can do a lot with rsync and a crontab. If you really need moment-by-moment protection, try DRBD.

    Will this affect server performance much or at least does it work the way R1Soft does? because that is what they use to brag that R1Soft doesn't affect performance and all that.

    You will not have the restore flexibility that R1soft offers.
    R1soft is extremely affordable for what it does, similar solutions from other vendors tend to have a significantly higher price tag.
    We have tried all possible solutions on the market and ended up choosing for R1soft. Even building our own platform or using a mash up of open source products was considered, but R1soft proved to be the best solution and the most affordable when all costs were considered.

    There are some segments of the hosting market where it's just too expensive, but there is really nothing comparable in it's price range either. It's cheap enough to be considered by hosts but expensive enough for us to wish it was cheaper

    Certainly the best solution overall if it fits in your budget.
