At iGateway MS, we include advance data protection and disaster recovery services with all domain name and website hosting services.
We understand that data is the lifeblood of most companies today and organizations increasingly require 100% up-time, where data is constantly online and accessible. We have therefore implemented solid solutions that allows you to protect your data in the unfortunate event of software malfunction, system failure, events of loss of data due to hacking or viruses etc.
RAID Technology - We use cutting-edge RAID Hardware to protect all data on the server against hard-disk failures. RAID, commonly known as redundant array of independent disks, is a data storage visualization technology that combines multiple disk drive components into an array for the purposes of data redundancy or performance improvement. This technology works by creating a mirror of all data on more than one hard-disk automatically, without any delay i.e. all data is written to multiple hard-disks simultaneously so that if any hard-disk fails, the data is preserved and that hard-disk will be marked as deactivated while the system still continues to function as though nothing has happened by using copies of the data on the other hard-disk(s).
RAID systems offer a significant advantage over non-RAID systems, both in terms of data protection and ability to maintain 100% up-time, as the system continues to function perfectly in case of disk failures. RAID technology also marginally improves the performance of the various services on the server.
As soon as a hard-disk fails, notification alerts are sent out, so that the failed hard-disk can be replaced by the system administrators. As such, the system continues to perform normally despite disk failures, using the mirror of the data on the additional hard-disk(s).
The best part is that you are not required to make any changes or special code modifications in your website or web applications for this technology to function.
Daily & Weekly Server Backups - The process of backing up, refers to the copying and archiving of computer data so it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. With backups, important data is stored across various locations on a server. Our subject-matter experts have conducted comprehensive research and have prepared complex backup scripts that automatically maintain copies of all important files and folders, in a secure manner, on a regular pre-defined interval, such that we can restore a server in the shortest possible time, in the event of a total failure.
Your Own Backup Policy Manager (Only Applicable for Web Hosting Packages) - A backup is a copy of your website’s files, directories, databases, and email configurations. Keeping a backup copy of your website on your personal computer is a wise precaution for many reasons, including possible data corruption and computer failure.
All our services involve your critical data. Most of our Products have a built-in Backup Manager that provides comprehensive and cost effective protection by allowing you to define highly flexible backup policies that will protect your critical data. A web-based backup policy manager provides an easy-to-use one-step wizard to define the backup scope, backup frequency and backlogs.
