Re: Automatic Firewall Installed
I am curious: assuming that the cloud service has disaster recovery and backup built in?

Re: Automatic Firewall Installed
It has backups built in, but I don't see how they're useful because only the entire backup can be restored. There's very little documentation, so I don't know if the backup includes the MySQL database, though you'd think it should since the database must ultimately just be files somewhere on disk.

Should be fine. The database will just be binary and config files that should get captured if the whole file system is being backed up.

Not sure what you mean by disaster recovery.

Basically just fail over in the event of issues with the server infrastructure. Generally speaking, this is implied with cloud vendors but they have different levels of DR depending on which options you select.

Re: Automatic Firewall Installed
Thanks.

I didn't see details on DR on their Confluence page, but when I searched, it appears they have a whitepaper that describes it. It's not available online but can be requested by customers:

https://www.superb.net/white-papers/data-protection

You may want to ask for a copy to give it a read. My guess is DR is baked into their infrastructure.

Re: Automatic Firewall Installed
Do we know if we are on a Virtual Server?

Yes. It's specified on their website materials:

https://www.superb.net/cloud-hosting/all-cloud-accounts

I agree that they likely have such things incorporated automatically at this point.

But, on the other side, it wouldn't be a shock if they attempted to charge extra or otherwise limit access to such "upgrades."

That's kind of why I recommend Percy grab a copy of the whitepaper they have for download. My suspicion is DR and backup likely come as different types of services. I can tell you that when I worked for a company years ago that had backup software, the type and manner of backup varied. Along with the disaster recovery aspects.

Generally, they all have some variant of DR and backup. It's just a question of which specific services you ask for. If you are a company that needs maximum uptime for your SAAS offering, you'd want some form of DR and backup that gets you on your feet again very quickly.

For EVC, I don't think it needs to be that robust. As much as we all like posting here, if the site was offline for a few days, it wouldn't be the end of the world.
