eApps Hosting Launches Enterprise High Performance Backup for Virtual Machines

Value-added cloud hosting provider eApps Hosting has launched an advanced backup service, called Enterprise Backup Service, aimed at users of eApps’ Virtual Machine in the Cloud hosting service. The enterprise backup service is featuring Server Backup Manager by Idera.

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

eApps utilizes the Richmond data center of QTS, which is claimed to be the second largest data center in the world.

From their eApps Hosting Portal, customers can enable the Enterprise Backup Service, then access a private cloud 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 Hosting network.

Highlights 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 original facility utilized by eApps is the Suwanee data center of QTS, located in the greater metropolitan area of Atlanta.
