Web hosting provider The Planet announced on Tuesday it is offering three new promotions that offer enhanced data protection and security for Planet Alpha dedicated server customers.
The company is offering a free 90 day trial on new orders of Network Backup and EVault Backup for a limited time.
Both solutions are hosted on The Planet’s managed storage infrastructure and are available in 10GB to 80GB, or larger capacities for mission-critical environments.
This is the latest promotion The Planet is offering since it launched its new Planet Alpha Dedicated Servers and Planet Northstar Managed Hosting divisions. Last week, The Planet added the Xeon 3210-SAS servers, which includes 146GB hard drive and 2GB RAM, to its line of Planet Alpha’s Ready To Go Servers.
Planet Alpha Data Protection Servers, which includes continuous data protection software from R1Soft, are discounted up to 29 percent, or a savings of $ 140 per month. They offer storage capacities of up to 6TB, and feature bare-metal recovery and block-level backup capabilities.
Existing customers can receive up to a 26 percent discount on Planet Alpha firewall solutions. The Check Point X16 firewall is available for $ 139 per month compared to its regular $ 189 price tag, while the Check Point XU firewall is now $ 69 per month, down from $ 89.
Additionally, Private Rack and Virtual Private Rack customers can order any one of three Cisco ASA solutions at a 15 percent discount.
“With The Planet’s backup and data protection solutions, SMBs can gain the simplest form of business continuity insurance at an affordable monthly rate,” says Rob Walters, GM of storage and data protection at The Planet. “Coupled with firewalls, customers gain peace of mind knowing that critical information is both protected and recoverable.”
