Continuous Data Protection (CDP) is a high-performance backup software created by R1Soft that allows for backup of both physical and virtual devices. Idera CDP consists of three main components: the CDP server, the agent and the database plugins, which are available for purchase separately from the first two components. Because R1Soft CDP is a third-party backup solution, interactions with CDP take place entirely outside of SoftLayer's proprietary interfaces; however, R1Soft CDP passwords may be tracked and stored within SoftLayer's Customer Portal. All other interactions with R1Soft CDP are documented on R1Soft's website.
