Easily backup and restore data anywhere with CenturyLink Cloud

Data is the lifeblood of any organization - and keeping that data safely backed up and accessible in the event of file corruption is crucial. Obendrein haben Organisationen unterschiedliche Datenaufbewahrungsrichtlinien, die bestimmen, wie lange die unterschiedlichen Informationstypen gesichert werden und wo sie physikalisch gehostet werden sollten.

For any server connected to the internet, Simple Backup Service offers the ultimate in reliability and convenience. Just point-and-click to create backup policies that meet your requirements, then apply them to servers in the CenturyLink Cloud. Simple Backup Service supports VSS snapshots on Windows servers to ensure safe backup of open files.

From there, Simple Backup Service does the rest for you — data is automatically backed up in secure object storage and retained according to the policy. What’s more, you can access Reports from the Control Portal or the Public APIs that provide details about backup and restore activity. In addition, the Simple Backup Service Monitoring feature keeps you informed of backup status with email alert and webhook notifications. Restores are simple too — just define the data you want to restore and the server to restore it to, click the Restore button, and it’s done.
