eApps Hosting announced the availability of an advanced backup service, called Enterprise Backup Service, for users of the company’s Virtual Machine in the Cloud hosting service.

Customers can now manage backups of their Linux or Windows Virtual Machines using the full power of Server Backup Manager, the leading enterprise grade backup software, by Idera, Inc.

From their eApps Hosting Portal, customers can enable the Enterprise Backup Service, then access a private instance of Idera’s web based administrative interface to schedule and administer backups of their Virtual Machines. This approach allows eApps’ customers to have a high degree of control of their backups using the extensive functionality of the Idera backup software, and also take advantage of future improvements by Idera as soon as they are available. All backups are stored within the eApps network.

The features of the Enterprise Backup Service are:

> Block level backups - backups are performed at the block level, rather than file level, to significantly shorten backup time and reduce I/O

> Frequent backups - the efficiency of processing allows backups to be scheduled down to intervals of just a few minutes, minimizing the risk of data loss

> Encryption - backups can be encrypted for maximum security

> MySQL backup integrity - optional plugin available at no extra cost ensures that MySQL backups have a clean cut-off

> Data restoration - users can restore files, directories, and an entire virtual machine

The service is designed for customers seeking a comprehensive, commercial grade backup solution. The service provides customers full control over all aspects of creating and managing backups of their eApps hosted Virtual Machines. The service has a full set of enterprise level features, is easy to use, and is efficient. The service is priced favorably, with usage fees starting at less than $15 per month for an account. A free 30 day trial is offered to all eApps customers.

The eApps Enterprise Backup Service is available to all customers of the eApps Virtual Machine in the Cloud service, a hosting service that allows precise selection and adjustment of RAM, CPU, disk and other computing resources using the Create-A-Cloud® tool. The Linux or Windows Virtual Machine is provisioned in minutes. eApps services are backed by a responsive in-house 24/7 technical support team available by phone, Skype, chat, and email.
