R1Soft Server Backup Manager (SBM) Integral Component in PhoenixNAP’s Solutions Portfolio Detailed in New Case Study
HOUSTON – Dec. 8, 2015 – R1Soft®, creator of the R1Soft Server Backup Manager (SBM) product line, announced that the flexibility and scalability of SBM allows phoenixNAP®, a global IT services provider offering cloud, dedicated server, colocation and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, to deliver server backup to a variety of customers ranging from small organizations to large enterprise businesses. R1Soft enabled Arizona-based phoenixNAP to launch a powerful server backup offering years ago, and today the company continues to grow its business globally and support the backup needs of a variety of data intensive customers.
“The application integration components of SBM are great – they allow us to scale the use of R1Soft from small and medium-sized business (SMB) to enterprise customers easily,” said William Bell, VP of Products at phoenixNAP. “The fact that I can back up Microsoft Exchange™ is very useful on the enterprise side, and the fact that I can back up a variety of flavors of Linux® is really helpful on the hosting side.”
R1Soft SBM also features industry-standard AES-256 encryption and includes a number of additional features that phoenixNAP depends on in its day-today operations such as site-to-site replication, multi-tenancy and disk safe verification. PhoenixNAP customers often want multiple copies of their backups – such as an operational backup and an archival backup at a separate location – and SBM allows that easily with the site-to-site replication feature.
PhoenixNAP is growing strategically, operating out of four locations today with a fifth that serves as a large network access point for the company. They are adding two more locations within the next year. The ability to distribute R1Soft anywhere they want geographically gives the company regional backup capabilities for customers who operate in multiple locations.

Known as the fastest, most scalable, yet affordable Continuous Data Protection™ software for both Windows® and Linux platforms in private and public clouds, R1Soft’s SBM is deployed by nearly 1,800 Web hosting providers and protects nearly 250,000 servers worldwide.
