Daily Backups

All FastVirtual servers, including customer web site content and data files, are backed up daily to both RAID systems and tape backup. Both backup sets are stored at separate locations. As an added precaution, backup tapes are stored securely off-site each week.

Backups are intended to safeguard against data loss in the event of disk or server failure. There is a $50 fee to recover user-deleted files.

To safeguard against data loss, customers may also request either a one-time, or recurring CD backup of their web site. Recurring CD backups can be sent either monthly or quarterly. This service is available from the "Account Preferences" area of the account control panel.
