The new Rackspace Cloud Control Panel was built to deliver speed and simplicity. In just a few minutes, you can schedule, manage, or restore files via the control panel. It’s easy to choose specific files and folders to back up and specify when and at what frequency to perform each created backup. Quickly restore backups to the originating Cloud Server or any Cloud Server running the backup agent.
Rackspace Cloud Backup is powered by a small software agent which needs to be installed on your Cloud Server. And it comes preinstalled on all Managed Cloud Servers.
The Cloud Backup agent knows what data you want to back up, when you want to back that data up and automatically makes it happen. The agent also knows what is already backed up and utilizes the de-duplication technology to only back up what has changed, compresses any new data that it backs up and applies the optional AES-256 encryption before any data leaves your server.
Rackspace Cloud Backup includes file compression and block-level de-duplication to reduce backup times, size, and storage costs. After the initial backup of a set of data, block-level de-duplication saves time and storage space by only backing up files that have changed since the last backup.
The files from your backups are stored on our Rackspace Cloud Files offering. All data stored in Cloud Files is written to three storage disks, all on separate nodes or locations that have dual power supplies.
In this video, we’ll show you the most popular features of Rackspace Cloud Backup, including creating a backup, managing existing backups, restoring a previous backup, and configuring encryption and email notifications.
