UK Servers offers three distinct secure backup options to use with your hosted servers allowing you to select the ideal backup storage solution based on your security, reliability and economical requirements.

CDP - Continuous Data Protection Backups

Our continuous data protection (CDP) is a high performance disk-to-disk backup service enabling Linux and Windows disaster recovery and bare metal restores. We are able to take a snapshot of your hard drive, and in the event of a hard drive failure or user error, provide a full restore of the disks. The CDP backup system also allows for restore of a single file, folder or database through the web interface system.
