See what’s new in your Cloud Control Panel

It’s no secret that our team takes client feedback very seriously. Whether it’s an idea for a new feature or time saving improvement, we stand ready to build and innovate to help our clients do more with the CloudAccess.net Platform. Here are a few exciting updates that have taken place recently.

Your Site Replications are Now Faster!

We all know that replications are done with just a few clicks on the CloudAccess.net platform. When a client clicks the replicate button, the “originating site” automagically overwrites the “target site” all behind the scenes. Our Platform Team has now updated this process to reduce the time in which the target site is offline. This was done by moving and extracting the originating site’s files while keeping the target site up and running. Then once the target site’s files are ready, the directories are swapped and the replication is completed. A complicated way of saying that the feature is now better than ever! BTW, this also applies to your backups when you use the “Restore to Alternate Site” function.
