    I currently use CDP on my cPanel server. It does a backup nightly. This is great. What is not so great is when I have a customer who needs a more frequent backup or a longer retainment. Just to educate when you add a custom plan for a customer, you can tell it to ignore everything but the ones you need for them. However CDP doesn't ignore those uneeded folders and files until it is on the backup server. This kills your bandwidth and disk I/O is higher resulting in reduced life.


    So I am looking at other options and one of them is StoreGrid. I am seeing a lot of mixed reviews. Their website is horribly jumbled and their pricing scheme is ugly. The features appear too good to be true
    1. cPanel integration for customers to restore their data or immediate backups
    2. WHMCS integration for managing custom backup profiles automatically
    3. Disk level backup and restores
    4. MySQL database restores

    Is this really up to par? Seems there are no good screenshot of some of these features.


    Thanks

    I was also started to get interested into the StoreGrid Hosting Provider Edition. I fond it very weird that there's no pricing schema publicly available (used the form to contact them but 3 days already passed and no reply and of course no buy option as-well). I also took the liberty to install their StoreGrid Backup Server just to play with it a bit and my first bad opinion is related to the very outdated softwares that they install (one example mysql 5.5.20 which in my opinion is very outdated and could pose a security risk en less you start to firewall everything).

    Anyways , i will give them like 2 more days for a pricing reply and if no response , i will add them to my personal "list of avoid/shame".

    I will do so Lenin. I did speak with Mike Jones the other day, but the connections were pretty poor and it was hard to ask and get answers to my questions. I will send you an email right now.

    Thanks,
    Frank
