We are all looking for the best solution to ensure data integrity when hosting customers website : as advertised on A2 hosting website, data loss happens to the best of us. That's why A2 has come up with a backup solution called Server Rewind that automatically creates "snapshot" backups of a client's server and site every few hours. Server Rewind is integrated into popular control panel cPanel and comes free with all shared, reseller and semi-dedicated hosting accounts. It is also available for managed and dedicated hosting customers.
According to A2 Hosting, the new solution is very flexible, easily giving customers the choice to restore just a single file, a MySQL database, an entire site or even a whole server through a bare-metal recovery.
Ann Arbor, Michigan-based A2 Hosting is the latest company to increase its server backup options. According to web host industry review, another web hosting provider, Cirrus Tech (cirrustech.com) began offering dedicated server customers new remote backup plans including R1Soft's (r1soft.com) Continuous Data Protection software.
