Reserve copying service is available for all virtual servers.
How it works
Reserve copying is performed once in a 24 hour period to a territorially remote disk array. Storage Depth parameter determines how long reserve copies will be kept (1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks). Copies older than chosen term will be automatically removed.

For already active server, you might activate the service in the Backup server menu, also specifying depth of keeping the copies:

Charges and Costs
The price of service is calculated with the following formula:
Z = G * S * (N / 7)
G stands for the price of service per 1 gigabyte, S stands for the total amount of all drives on the server, N is for the depth of storing the copies. The information about the current prices can always be found in the Billing tab of the ordered server.
The rules for charges:
- the service is charged every 10 minutes;
- the amount charged doesn’t depend on the stage of the server (turned on or turned off).
