Data Backup and Recovery Strategies

1. Full server backup

We as a web host take the backup of all files along with the database, images, and all subdirectories. Taking the backup of all your server data means all information will get a safe passage. Different information content management systems, databases, images and everything will be backed up in a separate location.

2. Daily backups using JetBackups

MilesWeb by default does the daily backup using Jetbackups on shared and reseller servers. It is beneficial because JetBackups uses the account’s associated Linux user to perform restorations to the corresponding home directories. Therefore, having files and folders inside the user’s home directory ( /home/ {USER}) they will not be having permission to (typically owned by root ) may cause the restore to partially fail.

3. R1soft Backups

We opt for this backup measure mostly for VPS server and dedicated hosting server. However, users have to opt for this backup as an add-on feature. They need to add to the cart on these web hosting plans.  It is a flexible, server-friendly solution that eliminates the pains of running traditional backups. This data backup manager monitors your data ensuring no corrupting of files. Also, it has the feature of Disk Safe verification that is easy to schedule to run periodically. Restore and recover large file systems or entire servers quickly on the dedicated server even while a backup job is running.

4. Acronis Backups

The next list in this data backup and recovery strategy is Acronis Backup. We use this data backup strategy mostly for VPS and dedicated hosting users. However, in this case, also users have to opt for an add-on feature. With this backup strategy, users can overcome the growing complexity of IT infrastructures of complicated cyberattacks. Moreover, it comprises Acronis Cyber Protect. It integrates backup with advanced anti-ransomware technologies to keep data safe from any cyberattacks.
