While we worked on updated backups functionality we also researched various solutions around and the only other interesting backup solution we found was R1Soft CDP Solution. Both, Virtuozzo's built-in and R1Soft's backup solutions have their own cons and pros and we would be interested to know your opinion about the backup scheme you prefer us to deliver. Here is a general and very basic summary of pros and cons from various points of view: Virtuozzo backup pros (from customer point of view) 1. Built into Power Panel; 2. Delivered free of charge by us. Virtuozzo backup cons (from customer point of view): 1. With VZ 3.0 only full VPS restore is available (VZ 4.0 suppose to be able to deliver single file restoration); 2. Slow. Both, backup creation and restoration takes significant amount of time; Virtuozzo backup cons (from KH point of view): 1. Slow. Depending on number of files stored inside the VPS and, especially within single directory both restore and backup creation operations could take hours; 2. Impact on performance â€“ Virtuozzo backups are done on the filesystem level and it takes significant amount of time, CPU power, disk I/O and memory for backups creation due to full filesystem scan on each backup run. CDP pros (from customer point of view): 1. Ability to restore single file / directory; 2. Higher number of restore points (we will probably switch to daily backups scheme if CDP would be implemented). CDP cons (from customer point of view): 1. Some sort of a fee would be introduced with this solution; 2. One more control panel URL, username and password to remember; 3. Inability to see / manage VPS backups through the Power Panel. CDP pros (from KH point of view): 1. Decreased load on servers â€“ even creation of the initial restore point would cause reduced amount of damage to overall performance as R1Softâ€™s solution is a sector level backup and is working on pre-filesystem level; 2. Faster backups creation; 3. Ability to create more restore points for customerâ€™s filesystems. CDP cons (from KH point of view): 1. Overall price of this solution; 2. One more added possible point of failure; 3. One more vendor to work with; 4. Possible increase in Sales and Support departments load due to processing of inquires related to this product.
