Just two months into the new year, Cloudways has already started making strides into the right direction. We added WooCommerce inside our WordPress app installation. This was followed by the integration of Google Compute Engine on our Cloud Platform. Plus, we added a new system to whitelist trusted IPs called Security.
But, we are on a roll here! Today, we are announcing enhancements in two of our most important features: Backup and Restore.
Automated Hourly Backups
Data is as precious as your own identity. This is why you can’t afford to lose it. Keeping in view the importance of data and customers’ convenience, Cloudways has refined its unique data backup facility.
Previously, you could set the frequency of backups with respect to the number of days, i.e. from 1 to 7 days.
Now, you can set automatic backup frequency on hourly basis. Yes, that’s true! The new data backup mechanism can create multiple server backups. Through our new system, backups are created after every 1 hour, 3 hours, 6 hours, or 12 hours. It all depends on the frequency you set. If your website holds a lot of crucial data, hourly backups are preferred.
This is good news for everyone. If something bad happens to your website, your loss would be of only an hour. This is little damage if you compare it with a loss of whole day.
But, backup is not only feature we worked on. We have revamped our Restore feature too.
Time-Specific Restore Points
Imagine a situation where you have accidentally pushed a wrong set of code on your production site. What will you do?
Surely, you will try your level best to restore the previous backup. This is exactly what Cloudways had promised to provide to its esteemed clients.
We offered a restore feature, but it was not time specific. It was backup specific. With the latest tweak, the restore facility has become time and date specific. It gives you the opportunity to restore your backups very easily with respect to date and time parameters. All your backups are kept intact for 7 days.
Therefore, if anything goes wrong, you can always count on Cloudways point-in-time-recovery backup feature and restore any of the previous backups for your convenience.
