How to protect your valuable data with continuous data backup software
Continuous data protection
Continuous data protection (CDP), also called continuous backup or real-time backup refers to backup of computer data by automatically saving a copy of every change made to that data, essentially capturing every version of the data that the user saves. It allows the user or administrator to restore data to any point in time.
CDP is a service that captures changes to data to a separate storage location. There are multiple methods for capturing continuous changes involving different technologies that serve different needs. CDP-based solutions can provide fine granularities of restorable objects ranging from crash-consistent images to logical objects such as files, mailboxes, messages, and database files and logs.
Differences from RAID/replication/mirroring
Continuous data protection differs from RAID, replication, or mirroring in that these technologies only protect one - the most recent - a copy of the data. If data becomes corrupted in a way that is not immediately detected, these technologies will simply protect the corrupted data.
Continuous data protection will protect against some effects of data corruption by allowing restoring a previous, uncorrupted version of the data. Transactions that took place between the corrupting event and the restoration will be lost, however. They could be recovered through other means, such as journaling.
Continuous back up valuable data with EaseUS Todo Backup
Have you ever experienced minutes of horror when your presentation went unexpectedly lost shortly before completion? Possibly, the document has been deleted by mistake or the data was accidentally amended (most common issue of data loss) or the program failed to store the file due to inexplicable reasons. There are also bugs or viruses which could maliciously destroy your data while working. The expensive RAID hard-disk systems protect from the relative seldom technical failures of hard-disks only and the normal system backups are often not conducted regularly.
