Cloud-Based Data Backup and Storage

256-Bit Encryption

Strong local encryption protects your data from unauthorized access with up to 256-bit strong keys even before it is transmitted to the cloud.

SSL Encryption

Any data sent to the cloud is automatically encrypted using the hardened SSL protocols which eliminate the possibility of an outsider gaining access to it.

Server Side Encryption

All data can be optionally encrypted at rest in the data center. This adds an extra layer of security for the most critical data to ensure protection.

Full Backup

Backup data including file systems, system states, and business applications. With incremental backup and block level backup, you can select what needs to be backed up.

Windows Server Backup and Recovery

Backup file system, MS SQL Server, MS Exchange or perform System State Backup and Bare Metal Recovery. RapidScale CloudBackup includes:

  • File Level Backup and Recovery – choose individual files and folders to backup
  • System State Backup and Bare Metal Recovery – create a system state backup or whole system image to restore original Windows Server configuration or rebuild entire system from ground up to a new or existing hardware
  • SQL Server Backup – backup MS SQL Server databases with pre-set scheduling templates or configure your own for full, differential or transaction log backup
  • Exchange Backup – backup MS Exchange mail stores to the cloud

Bandwidth Throttling

RapidScale CloudBackup allows you to configure backups to use most of available bandwidth during non-operating hours and throttle backup traffic during business hours, to allow normal business operation.

Purge Options

Set up purge options to enable automated deletion of outdated data from your storage. Specify number of versions to keep for each file. Purge file versions older than specified file age. Specify for how long keep files that were deleted locally.

Seemless and Secure

Set up a schedule or enable continuous backup process. Specify retention policy for backups. Back up only the changed parts of your files. Track each run of your backup and restore plans. Limit backup traffic utilization. Reduce backups’ size with local compression.

Scheduling & Real-Time Backup

Set up a schedule or enable continuous backup process. Run backup on a specific date and time. Schedule regular backups. Back all new and updated files in real time.

CloudBackup web interface

Backup Schedule: Automate backups by setting up suitable time and frequency.

Real-Time Backup: Backup everything automatically. CloudBackup runs as Windows Service and tracks folders for new or changed files to backup them immediately.

Encryption: Protect your data from unauthorized access by choosing an encryption algorithm and setting a unique encryption key. CloudBackup encrypts all you data before uploads it to a storage.

Compression: Reduces the size of your backups to save time and money spent on data recovery plan. CloudBackup compresses data prior to transfer.

Virtual Disk: Expose cloud storage as a local disk on your computer and access your data.

Intelligent Bandwidth Scheduler: Control the bandwidth throttling in real-time to set, for instance, the backup to consume all available bandwidth during the off hours and on the weekends while consume only 10% of bandwidth during the working hours.

Local Backup: Set up local backup if you want to send only subset of your data to the cloud and keep the rest on your local backup storage.

Block Level Backup: Backup only changed parts of the file. CloudBackup detects these parts and automatically uploads it to the remote storage.

  • Keep backups in remote location
  • Restore backups anytime from any place where you have internet connection
  • Setup suitable schedule for backups or backup every changed or new file immediately with Continuous Data Protection
  • Protect backups by encrypting your data
  • Compress backups to reduce the size of required cloud storage.

If I purchase one license can I activate CloudBackup on two computers?

CloudBackup is licensed per computer. If you want to run it on two computers you need to buy two licenses.

Will CloudBackup copy opened files?

Yes, CloudBackup leverages Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Technology to backup opened files

How CloudBackup secures my data?

CloudBackup offers several industry standard strong encryption algorithms to protect your data.

Does CloudBackup copies all files every time it runs?

No, CloudBackup  identifies files modified since last backup and only copies such files. This makes subsequent backups run much faster

Can CloudBackup copy only modified portion of the file? I want to backup my Outlook PST file, but it is 2GB and I don't want to copy the whole file every time.

This is called block-level backup and it is fully supported with CloudBackup.

Does CloudBackup keep older versions of the file?

Yes and this feature gives you an ability to restore a file to a certain point in the past.

If I delete a file on my local computer is it also deleted from backup storage?

Yes, the file will be deleted from the online storage too. By default, though, the file will stay on the online storage for 30 days to prevent accidental deletion. We call it Smart Delete.

Can CloudBackup copy the data immediately as it changes (e.g. new files are added or existing files are modified)?

Yes, this is what we call Real-time backup. You can select this option in the Backup Wizard Scheduling step. By using a low level Windows API this feature comes with zero impact on your computer performance.

Does CloudBackup support MAC OS X platform?

Yes, CloduBackup supports all of the following:

  • Windows Desktop (7/8/10)
  • Windows Servers (2003/2008/2012)
  • Mac OS 10.8 or newer
  • Ubuntu, Suse, RedHat, Fedora, CentOS, Oracle Linux

Backup in the Cloud

Cloud backup refers to the method of backing up data and involves sending a copy of data over a network to an off-site server. This is an essential piece of a business continuity strategy. Cloud computing backup is the best way to get off-site backup for your most important business files, though for some, this can be a scary transition. Many people shy away from the concept of allowing their precious data live in a place they can’t see, and that’s understandable. However, it’s time to make a change.

Cloud backup is actually an extremely secure method for data backup because providers today simply have to offer reliable solutions in order to maintain their business. With cloud backup, data is stored in the cloud, or the Internet, though it’s ultimately located on secure infrastructure owned, managed, and maintained by the cloud provider. And when data is stored in the cloud, it is accessible to authorized users whenever they need it, on any device they want to use, from any location. If disaster strikes, businesses maintain up-to-date, clean data in the safe-and-sound cloud environment.
