Disaster recovery: all in a day’s work at VaultPress

Composer Ryan Youens has written over 130 pieces of music for the likes of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Sphaera Ensemble (Brazil), Gruppetto Quartet (Greece), and the Auckland Symphony Orchestra, just to name a few. As an arranger, Ryan has produced over 40 arrangements for ensembles and composers including the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, the Auckland Symphony Orchestra, and many others. His site showcases audio samples of his musical compositions and his arrangements. Last Saturday night (New Zealand time) Ryan learned his website was down, and he’d lost all his content.

What was music to our ears, was this statement on his blog:

I feared not, as I use VaultPress for my backups.

Ryan contacted VaultPress support and credits Safekeeper Brian for getting his site back online promptly.

“Due to some issue on my site or server I wasn’t able to restore it myself as you would usually be able to do easily,” writes Ryan. “I submitted an “emergency” issue but I had to wait until Tuesday morning (NZ time) for the VaultPress support to come back online! Tuesday morning came and right on cue Brian emailed me. Within about an hour he had found and fixed the problem and restored my website.”

For the full story, read Ryan’s account. Be sure to listen to some of his incredible compositions, and his musical arrangements.
