Backup Solutions and Data Recovery

At CoreSpace we have an array of storage servers that can be scaled dynamically to meet any backup needs. We use industry leader R1Soft’s Server Backup Manager as the foundation of our backup solution. R1Soft allows both point-in-time recovery of data (snapshots) and incremental file level backups for quick restorations. R1Soft is a CDP (Continuous Data Protection) service that can offer backup frequency as quickly as every 5 minutes. Server backups can be configured across our private backup network for increased performance and cost savings.

The CoreBackup product is a managed backup solution. CoreSpace will monitor the CoreBackup servers as well as your individual servers backup performance. We will configure the service for you and send you periodic reports on the status of your backups as well as perform any restoration request you may have.
Backups start as low as 50cents per GB, and are available both in Quota plans, or those with a pay-as-you go pricing model. Please contact our sales team for more information.

Below are the features and capabilities available with the CoreBackup service:

Continuous Data Protection® Technology

Backup server data at the block level bypassing the file system and reading data directly from the disk or volume. Block level backup provides advantages over traditional file backup technologies including the speed of completing a backup operation, a drastic reduction in disk and network I/O, the ability to perform backups as often as every 15 minutes and no performance penalty for servers having a large number of files.
You create the schedule for the Data Protection you require, and then monitor the status via automated e-mail reports and access to the backup service portal where you can also perform your own data restores!


Incremental backups are done at the block level instead of the file level. Block level backup provides several advantages including the speed of completing a backup operation, a drastic reduction in disk and network I/O, the ability to perform backups as often as every 15 minutes and no performance penalty for servers having a large number of files.


Windows & Linux / Physical & Virtual. RedHat, CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE and most custom Linux kernels. VMWare, Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, Parallels Cloud Server, Parallels Virtuozzo and KVM. Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange and MySQL (including MariaDB and Percona Server).

Flexible Data Recovery

Individual recovery points are easily accessible through the web interface where users can select individual files, directories or entire file systems to be restored within minutes. When disaster really strikes, a complete server can be recovered using a Bare Metal Restore, keeping downtime and data loss to a minimum. Data retention regulations for HIPAA, PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, etc. can be satisfied by locking individual recovery points and archiving them to offsite facilities. With the ability to replicate server data every 15 minutes, CoreSpace clients will have the highest level of data protection without requiring costly disk and network infrastructure.

Quick Restore

Recover large file systems or entire servers fast with Bare-Metal Restore. Granular file restore and one-click VM restore. Restore even while a backup job is running.

Onsite & Offsite Backups

Using tapes for offsite backups is costly, tedious and time-consuming. CoreBackup offers a more efficient method — Multi-Point Replication. Make multiple copies for on-site or offsite with no interruption to servers. Portable Disk Safe® technology lets you move your backups wherever you need them.

Data Retention Policies

Define a replication goal (for example, every 15 minutes) and how many recovery points to retain. Old recovery points are automatically merged and their storage is recycled.

Disk Safe Verification

Monitors your data to make sure it’s safe from corruption. Disk Safe Verification can be scheduled to run periodically or on demand detecting and alerting you in the event of corruption. This reduces the need for test restores, and gives you confidence in the integrity and restore-ability of your data.

Powerful File Excludes

Browse file system and select any combination of files and folders to be excluded from your policy. Add advanced rules and exclude rules using patterns to exclude only certain file types.


AES-256 Disk Safe Encryption can be enabled at the time of creation of Disk Safes for backup data. This aids in the protection of data stored in the backup server, and in protection of the data over the network.
