For workloads requiring advanced backup capabilities, CenturyLink offers Managed Backup services featuring Symantec NetBackup. Quickly provision servers with advanced backup features with a single click. The service includes: file and folder level backups and restores, encryption at rest, 2-week retention periods and replication to a secondary site.
Managed Backup is a superior alternative to many do-it-yourself options. Why? No significant work is required by users, no wasted spend on infrastructure, and no need to write any code or connect to APIs. In addition, there are no setup fees and no bandwidth charges for the service.
Managed Backup is available in UC1 (Santa Clara, CA), VA1 (Sterling, VA), IL1 (Chicago, IL), GB3 (Slough, United Kingdom), SG1 (Singapore) & CA3 (Vancouver) data centers; additional sites will be supported in the coming months.
Upon creation of a server, or even after a server has already been provisioned, managed backup services can be turned on and off. The backup service runs automatically from there.
Restores can be performed at the file and folder level. And data can be restored from any daily backup performed in the current 14 day window.
Data is encrypted at rest on backup infrastructure using the Blowfish algorithm.
Manage the details of your backups from the NetBackup agent, with restores available upon request.
Data is backed up at a secondary facility, offering geographic diversity for enterprise systems. Using DOV, data is transferred and retained at a CenturyLink data center different than where the data backup originated (this is done via a secure, private CenturyLink network connection). Customer data is retained on disk for two weeks, with other options available upon request.
