Hosting provider Hivelocity launched a new service on Monday designed to make data restorations up to 20x faster than a typical recovery effort over public web by using the Hivelocity private network. Called Rapid Restore, the service can restore anything from a single file to an entire bare metal server, according to Hivelocity.

Hivelocity customers can access 5 recovery points with Rapid Restore, and a new recovery point will be created each day. The service can restore server data from up to 200GB per hour, providing protection from hard drive failures, data corruption, accidental data deletion and viruses, according to the announcement.

“Our goal with everything we do is to make life easier on our customers. Our new Daily Backup & Rapid Restore service gives our customers peace of mind knowing they will always have a way to recover any or all of their server data from a backup no more than 24 hours old. Additionally, they have the peace of mind knowing a data recovery event will have minimal impact on their business because the data restoration happens so quickly. I would gladly give up the burden of managing and monitoring my backups for a buck a day,” Hivelocity’s Tech Support Manager, Javier Viduera said in a statement.

For a limited time Hivelocity is offering a 30-day free trial of the service. After the trial the service costs about $1 per day to backup up to 500GB per day.

In October, Hivelocity broke ground on a new data center in Tampa, Fla., doubling its footprint in the state.
