The Planet Announces Backup Promotion

HOUSTON -- The Planet, the worlds largest privately held dedicated hosting company, today announced a new Dedicated Backup Server pricing promotion on servers equipped with R1Soft’s full-featured CDPServer continuous data protection software. Through Jan. 14, 2008, customers can take advantage of its popular backup options, now priced as low $.23 per gigabyte. With this offer, customers can backup an unlimited number of clients and select from three storage options -- 500 GB, 1TB or 1.5TB. The promotion begins today at 10:00 a.m. CST.

The feature-rich backup solution offers a perfect fit for small to large businesses with mission-critical, intense data storage needs. With unique delegated administration functionality provided on The Planet’s Dedicated Backup Servers, the new R1Soft solution is also ideal for resellers looking to provide backup to their customers in a cost-effective, self-service model. With these dedicated backup solutions, customers will appreciate the fact that there is no limit to the number of clients backed up for any of the three offerings.

“Our customers know that backup is vital, but often can’t afford a full-featured, enterprise-class solution,” said The Planet’s Director of Product Management Urvish Vashi. “With our unique dedicated backup storage, we’re offering rich capabilities for secure backup on a dedicated device that’s already preconfigured and ready for immediate use. At prices as low as $.23 per gigabyte per month, there’s no reason for customers not to start today.”
