Securing your data is paramount when it comes to dedicated servers. If you are not taking the steps to guarantee your data, you may be leaving yourself vulnerable to future problems. Even if you’re storing a local copy of your data, the process of re-creating accounts, installing applications and uploading your files can be quite a time consuming task, and sometimes not an option at all due to lack of technical know how or lack of time to complete the job.
By taking the extra step early on, you are potentially heading off serious issues that could result from loss of data due to hard drive failure or user negligence. That’s why Open Source Host suggests all of our Dedicated Server customers take advantage of one of our backup solutions. Because of our years of experience in backup/recovery services for our dedicated server and web hosting clients, we have streamlines the process for retrieving your data and making it available to you in the shortest time possible.

Local hard drive Option
By utilizing our custom backup software, combined with a local hard drive on your server you will have the ability to create backups for your data on your own schedule, including; daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or quarterly backup options. When your server is setup, we will install a second hard drive in your machine and provide access to the systems to manage your backup schedule.
How the Local Hard Drive Option Works
|With 70GB of storage space utilized on the primary hard drive, the secondary hard drive will hold a single 'one-for-one' copy of your server data. The primary and secondary hard drive's are 80GB each.|
|With 40GB of storage space utilized on the primary hard drive, the secondary hard drive will hold two 'one-for-one' copies of your server data. The primary and secondary hard drive's are 80GB each.|
|Starting off with 20GB of storage space utilized on the primary hard drive, the secondary hard drive will hold four 'one-for-one' copies of your server data. If you were to increase the storage space you are using on your primary hard drive to 30GB, the total number of 'one-for-one' copies of your server data will decrease because of the amount of space required to complete the additional backups. The primary and secondary hard drive's are 80GB each.
Backup copies of your data are removed to make room for new backups from the oldest copy to the newest copy of your server data. Pricing for the local hard drive option is $10+ the monthly cost of the additional hard drive.
