CDP Backups

What are CDP Backups?

CDP, or Continuous Data Protection provides your servers with Fast, Smart, Affordable Server Backup Software.

A backup agent runs on your server and sends 'snapshots' of incremental data back to the backup server at time intervals of your choice, therefore only taking the time to transfer the data that has changed since the last backup was run. Backups can be scheduled as closely as 15 minutes apart, providing you with near-realtime protection of your data.

Each snapshot has a time-stamped recovery point, which allows you to choose from your data to restore from any of your retained backup points.


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.
