    Web Server Backup

    Hello Everyone,

    We are small web hosting company. We are currently looking for backup solution which can instantly recover everything back as quick as possible.

    I would appreciate any suggestions / help!

    Thanks & Regards,
    Sunil

    You can also consider CDP backup.

    There is no "instant" restoration process. :-)

    We have about 3 TB worth of backup space with bqbackup.com - top notch operation.

    rsync is the most popular option, or just tball the entire root and download it. Bit low tech though

    I prefer CDP option too, if they are not going to put load on servers. Do you know any good CDP solutions?

    We are currently using BFW to backup files on remote server. BFW is working fine for now but we are looking to backup complete server (OS & Applications).

    I used to use rsync, then rsnapshot but am now R1soft, for Linux backups there are none better. The Windows backup isn't as good but still better then anything else I have seen.

    It also has control panel plugins for a few popular Control Panels.

    You'll need to get software that can read open files. Most of the backup software for Windows doesn't support this.

    Not a windows kind of guy, so can't help you. Soon I'm going to add an extra nic to each of my servers, and have a dedicated backup system wth storage array on a private subnet.

    I guess it would be idle most of the time though, except when backups are going on.

    I would use an internal disk array and run your backup script. If you use an external backup company your going to be wasting all your bandwidth running the backups through the net. If you have some sort of internal system the traffic just goes through the local routers which should have plenty of power to handle it being high industrial data center equipment.

    The only instant backup that I can think of is using a Raid 1 mirror. But that is normally for hardware backup in case of a hard disk crash.

    Yeah, raid1 is good for disk failure, but not for human errors
