    That is correct - you would be able to bring your VPS back to its state by restoring your last database dump and rsync'ing differentials acquired over prior days.

    Backups are stored on-site at our datacenter.

    We do not operate from multiple datacenters at this time, however, our present datacenter is designed to withstand disasters and is monitored 24/7 by security personnel.

    Just wondering, what kind of natural disasters affect the Tukwila and Seattle area?
    I did a little research a while back, before I signed up and found out Spry/VPSLink is colocated(?) at the Fortress Colocation Centers, which is at Integrate West. They definitely appear to have all the normal and backup equipment needed to properly run a DC.
    Note: my views are my own and do not reflect those of VPSLink

    The Puget Sound and the Olympic Peninsula provide significant protection from hurricanes, tsunamis, and flooding in general, however, the area does have a potential for seismic activity (the possibility of an earthquake was taken into consideration - the datacenter is reinforced to withstand an earthquake).

    The is our way for duplicating/backing up Xen DomU machines.

    pkill.info/blog/post/how-to-duplicate-xen-domu-virtual-machines.html

    We use VBD based Xen DomU virtual machines. This method requires stopping the DomU during backing up.
