Benefits of a Data Protection Solution

To meet the high level demands of our customers, Canadian Web Hosting has partnered with several leading backup technology leaders including Idera. With Idera, you get their Continuous Data Protection (CDP) solution for Linux and Windows server backups. Idera's CDP is a solution that enables disk-based data protection, Linux and Windows disaster recovery and Bare-Metal Restore for servers and workstations running Linux and Windows operating systems. Described below is a high level layout of each backup server configuration with available server options that provide geographic separation and business contuity.

Bare-Metal Disaster Recovery

Restore servers directly from disk-based backup. Unlike traditional backup software, there is no need to first partition your drive and install the operating system.


Sector-based backups increase throughput and reduce overhead. Servers can be fully operational with minimal performance impact during backups. Backups can usually be performed at any time, even on busy servers.

Small Backup Windows

Only changed disk sectors are copied between backups. Incremental backups are able to be completed in minutes.

Open File Backups

Idera’s backup technology includes built-in support for backing up open files. No third party software is required.


Our technology provides consistent point-in-time, system-wide backup images.

Near-Continuous Backups

During normal host operation, the Idera Agent keeps a journal of disk changes. Incremental backups know which sectors on the disk have changed before the backup operation even starts. This eliminates the need for file-by-file or block-by-block comparisons every backup.

Remote Administration

Software can be completely controlled offsite using a single page Web-based interface.


Incremental sector-based backups ignore unused portions of the disk and copy only the disk sectors that have changed since the last backup. When used with traditional compression, this reduces backup storage by as much as 90% compared to a traditional system-wide, file-by-file backup.

End-to-end Strong Encryption

Data is continuously encrypted while in storage and during network transmission using RSA keys. Decryption during a restore is only possible when the encryption key holder enters their pass phrase.

Data Integrity

During backup and restore, data is verified using MD5 checksums.
