Since 2012, BackupRun Has Been Relying on R1Soft to Deliver Fast, Secure, Reliable and Affordable Server Backup to Customers

HOUSTON, TX – May 13, 2015 — / — R1Soft®, creator of the R1Soft Server Backup Manager (SBM) product line, has released a case study on the success of BackupRun, a global company that has been delivering a complete backup-as-a-service offering to customers based on R1Soft’s SBM since 2012. Using R1Soft as a foundation, combined with BackupRun’s own scripts and servers, a daily deal website with more than 1,000,000 customers has been able to channel their resources into developing the company – without having to worry about data loss.

“We set out to develop a complete backup-as-a-service offering for our customers, and we haven’t looked back since,” said Edward Alexandru, Business Development Manager at BackupRun. “R1Soft is our base – and we’ve constructed our entire solution around it. SBM is straightforward and easy to use – the technology isn’t overly complicated. It allows us to be more efficient and to speed up and enhance our customer service. All of that is very important to our business.”

Server Backup Manager was designed by hosting professionals who understand the challenge of managing the hidden costs often associated with traditional backup offerings. SBM is truly an all-inclusive solution – no additional modules, plug-ins or add-ons are required, and a flexible pay-as-you-go pricing model ensures that BackupRun only pays for what they need. Bypassing the file system and reading data directly from the disk or volume, SBM’s block-level backup can perform backups as frequently as every 15 minutes – with drastic reduction in disk and network I/O, and minimal server impact.

The R1Soft technology currently protects nearly 250,000 servers and is trusted by nearly 1,800 Web hosting providers.
