Host Department Implements Better Servers’ Backup and Disaster Recovery
Wilmington, DE – October 13, 2005 – Host Department, a leading Web hosting and domain name registration provider, today announced that it has installed the UltraBac Disaster Recovery from UltraBac Software, and H-Sphere Backup from H-Sphere Packages, in all its servers.
“We decided to go with UltraBac because it performs quick and easy image based backup and disaster recovery of an unbootable machine in minutes. In a case of unforeseen event, the quick and easy recovery process will save us serious servers’ downtime, which is vital to our services. While UltraBac was designed from the ground up for Microsoft’s Windows operating system, it comes equipped with agents that allow backup from other operating systems, such as FreeBSD and Linux. These are the reasons that make it the perfect software for all our servers’ backup and disaster recovery,” said J. Erlando, Host Department System Administrator.
In addition to UltraBac’s installation, Host Department has also installed H-Sphere Backup as an extra feature for its H-Sphere web hosting control panel. With H-Sphere Backup, clients will be able to download a backup copy of all files in their domain directory on their own. Additionally, the add-on will allow clients to download or upload the backup via the web browser, or use a remote FTP server to store or restore their files, all directly from their web hosting control panel. According to Erlando, this installation was driven by its clients’ numerous constant demands to backups, and will be offered at no extra charge.
