Your Data is Safe at ScalaHosting
One of the things which make us different from the other web hosting providers nowadays is backups. We checked what backup options other hosting providers in the industry provide to their clients and we were shocked to see that almost all of them charge extra for backups and they have either daily or weekly backups but not both of them. They charge from $10 to $15 per restore. At ScalaHosting, we give our clients access to their backups so that they can access and restore the data at any time of the day or night. On top of that, we provide it for free. Our shared hosting and power reseller hosting plans include daily, weekly and even monthly backups for free. Our best reseller hosting and VPS hosting plans include daily and weekly backups for free. Dedicated servers can have custom backups. For example, you can decide to have backups for the last 1, 3, 7, 60 or even 90 days. We can perform the backups as per your needs for your dedicated server. We can also do backups hourly. All our backups are stored on remote backup servers with RAID for maximum redundancy and reliability. That allows us to keep your data secure no matter what happens with the server you are using. Our servers are also secured well to avoid severe failures and eventual data loss. All our servers have RAID cards and 4 drives configured to work in RAID10. RAID10 increases the read/write operations so that the web sites of our clients load instantly and also it protects the clients from data loss. RAID10 allows up to 2 hard drives to fail at the same time before the server goes down. All servers are hot-swap which lets us replace failed hard drives without rebooting the server and causing downtime. We know uptime is the most important thing for every web site and that is why we invest a lot of money to have the latest and best hardware which enables us to offer a top quality service.
We have invested many thousands of dollars to implement the backup system we have. At the moment, each NAS (network access storage) server we have has 8 drives 2TB each configured in RAID6. What is the result? The result is all our clients can feel their data is safe and they will not lose it. Although our backup system is monitored 24/7 we encourage all our customers to keep a backup of their data just in case as there is nothing perfect in the world which may never fail.
