The data is encrypted and backed up differentially every hour, and fully once per night to two disparate locations (Rackspace and Amazon S3). The data restore is also tested after each release cycle (typically every three weeks).

Data segregation is implemented at a per-customer level. Each customer is considered a separate entity that has access only to its own data.
