R1Soft Archive allows hosting providers to expand their backup policy and reduce storage costs

HOUSTON, Texas– April 19, 2018 - R1Soft®, creator of the R1Soft Server Backup Manager (SBM) product line, has announced the availability of R1Soft Archive. As an expansion of SBM, Archive serves as a long-term, low-cost backup and archival option that offers secure, off-site storage for less time-critical data.

Archive leverages the scale and economics of the public cloud, creating a cost-effective data storage option, while combing the simplicity of R1Soft SBM. With the ability to provide off-site redundancy and manage recovery point snapshots on a variety of cloud and hosted storage options, Archive enables hosting providers to expand their backup offering to fit any business’ needs.

Additionally, Archive offers multiple deployment options—including Amazon Glacier and Amazon S3—for long-term storage that meets compliance certifications and ensures critical data is protected from natural disasters, IT outages and cyber security threats including malware and malicious acts.

“Off-site backups are now essential to surviving a data breach or disaster scenario,” says Randy Bowie, vice president of engineering at R1Soft. “With the addition of Archive, we’ve expanded the capabilities of our proven backup solution to provide customers with an easy-to-manage, offsite backup and data archival option. In turn, this allows hosting and service providers the opportunity to offer their own hosted storage option that fits the needs of any customer—without additional software to purchase or manage.”

For current R1Soft customers, Archive can be added to any SBM license or license pool. For more information on R1Soft Server Backup Manager, visit:
