We employ a N+1 architecture for our application servers. This means multiple myCloudLYNX DS-Systems load balance and failover for each other. This is done to ensure the speedy backup and recovery of your data. It also greatly improves the reliability of the system as a whole. This is one of the big advantages of a true cloud backup solution as compared to other services that dedicate one box to you. Using this architecture also facilitates periodic system maintenance as it can be done on a node by node basis.
