Data is the lifeblood of any organization — and keeping that data safely backed up and accessible in the event of file corruption is crucial. On top of that, organizations have different data retention policies that govern how long certain types of information should be backed up and where it should be physically hosted.
For any server connected to the internet, Simple Backup Service offers the ultimate in reliability and convenience. Just point-and-click to create backup policies that meet your requirements, then apply them to servers in the CenturyLink Cloud. Simple Backup Service supports VSS snapshots on Windows servers to ensure safe backup of open files.
From there, Simple Backup Service does the rest for you — data is automatically backed up in secure object storage and retained according to the policy. What’s more, you can access Reports from the Control Portal or the Public APIs that provide details about backup and restore activity. Restores are simple too — just click on a "point-in-time" backup event, and the data will be automatically restored within minutes.

Simple Backup Service support for VSS snapshots on Windows servers means that users can backup open files while preserving file consistency for VSS-supported applications and databases running on Windows servers.
Windows' built-in Volume Shadow Storage/copy (VSS) technology enables backups of open files. VSS creates a fixed snapshot of the entire drive which Simple Backup Service uses to backup the data, instead of the storage volume that's continually changing.

Data type and compliance considerations often dictate retention requirements. With Simple Backup Service, extensive configurability allows you to keep your data for as long or as short a duration you specify.
