Our in-house created server monitoring is another piece of art of the SiteGround DevOps team. It is extremely lightweight and can check the server status far more often than standard monitoring systems. It not only detects current issues and fixes them immediately, but is also able to foresee upcoming problems and to take actions to prevent them.
Our platform is built on top of the cutting edge LXC (Linux containers) technology. We have chosen to use LXC, because it is extremely resource efficient, highly elastic and provides great stability in times of unexpected traffic spikes. While building our own implementation of the LXC, our talented DevOps have written multiple Linux Kernel patches, which we are proud to see now incorporated in the official Linux Kernel code itself.
Our custom backup system allows you to quickly browse and restore data from our automatic system backups. On top of that you can also create instant backups yourself anytime you need to, for example before making website changes. Back up certain files, folders, databases, emails, or your whole account and save multiple instant backup copies for 30 days. Anytime you need to restore previous versions of your data, you can do so instantly yourself using our handy backup restore tool. Instant backup is included free in our GoGeek and Cloud plans and a paid option on StartUp and GrowBig plans.
