X360Recover: Snapshot retention settings

Fine-tune your client's retention settings

Have you reviewed your snapshot retention policies lately?

You provide managed services spanning many industries - and that diverse clientele can create unique challenges when navigating client-by-client IT requirements and policies.

So when it comes to local retention of client data, x360Recover gives you the flexibility to customize alignment with your client's needs.

How to customize snapshot retention settings

Direct-to-Cloud (D2C): Local cache verification

Did you know we launched a new (free) verification feature included with D2C local cache? Once every 24 hours, a health check locates and "self-heals" any missing data, and then reports results to the backup server.

Direct-to-Cloud with local cache is our fast recovery acceleration layer, giving you the speed of a local BDR appliance - but with drastically less cost (and stress) than on-prem hardware requires.

Cloud vs. appliance: When to deploy what?

Every one of your clients is different.

Of course, x360Recover lets you choose what will work best for each your customers - from no-appliance BDRs, to public or private cloud backups.

But, with all of those options, how do you select the best infrastructure for each client? How do you decide when to suggest hardware-free cloud backup and when to recommend appliance-based backup instead?

Side-by-side comparisons: Cloud vs. appliance-based BDR

We are updating our email alerting/reporting for x360Cloud.
