The need of our customers for more flexible, individually configurable backup options is increasing. stepping stone Ltd has therefore renewed the backup infrastructure and changed the backup concept for Linux-based servers for the stoney backup service.
With the renewal of our online backup infrastructure, we now have significantly faster servers with a higher storage capacity for the stoney backup service.
The backup concept of the graphical backup client (Windows and Linux) allows the following iterations at a freely selectable time:
- Daily backups: 7 daily iterations (restore data for a specific day of the week)
- Weekly backups: 4 weekly iterations (restore data for a specific week of the month)
- Monthly backups: 3 monthly iterations (restore data for a specific month of the quarter)
For Linux-based servers, the backup concept was changed as follows (number of iterations freely selectable):
- Daily backups: up 99 daily iterations
Customers can not only restore specific daily backups for Linux-based servers, but also restore the entire file structure over a longer period of time. This means, for example, that it is possible to restore data from the entire 99 days, the last 20 days or a specific day from this period. The new concept thus offers more flexibility and a daily image of the backed up data over the predetermined period.
To benefit from the new backup concept for Linux-based servers, you can use the following manual.
