Guardian Backups

Dedicated Server Backups

Our powerful Dedicated Servers require a powerful backup solution. Included for free with all hosting plans is a local backup drive. To get so much more you can enhance your coverage with our fully-managed, robust, Guardian Backup & Recovery solution.

Guardian can continuously capture your entire system configuration depending on your server settings. All data backed up with our Guardian service is backed up to an off-site facility for disaster recovery. Guardian uses a combination of replication, synchronization, and point-in-time snapshots to provide complete server protection. With this level of coverage, our Monitoring and Support teams can recover your exact server configuration in the case of a catastrophic event.

Utilizing Your Guardian Backups

During normal operations, the Guardian agent keeps a record of disk changes and performs incremental backups for consistent, point-in-time, system-wide backup images. This method is less resource-intensive than traditional file-by-file options, and is done while the server is online at the lowest possible level (the sector level). Because Guardian uses sector-based backups that increase throughput and reduce overhead, your server can be fully operational and will experience minimal performance impacts.

With our optional Disk Safe feature, we can safely store your backups by encrypting them on backup nodes in an off-site facility.* When necessary, restoring your servers is simple and fast with our bare metal recovery. Customers running Linux can easily manage their backups through our Guardian cPanel Plugin, accessible in the cPanel interface.

*Off-site disaster recovery is available in US Central Region.
