R1Soft CDP Backup is a centralized storage (RAID 6 hardware) data storage solution for secure data storage. The system is managed through specialized software that controls the entire backup process, from saving the data to verifying its integrity. Idera protects your data by replicating and synchronizing it repeatedly, storing a number of restore points (full images), as required. The backup process saves your operating system, your applications, and generally any file stored on the server that you back up. In addition, Idera / R1Soft enables Bare-Metal Disaster Recovery technology to easily restore information stored in the backup system without requiring the server to be upgraded (eg re-installing the operating system).
