Data is vital to today’s business landscape. Losing it can be catastrophic, whether it’s due to tech changes, accidents, or cyber threats. Businesses these days rely heavily on their online presence to generate revenue, making efficient offsite backups crucial for quick data restoration during disruptions.

Backups on Cloudways

At Cloudways, safeguarding your data has been our top priority. This is why our users have had the option to take local and offsite backups with our reliable backup solution. But we understand that our previous system had its limitations, such as:

  • No backup retention beyond 30 days
  • Inability to push backups to their own S3 storage (DigitalOcean Storage, Amazon S3, Google Drive)
  • Inability to download offsite backups

After listening to our customers’ feedback, we discovered that these features were in high demand among many of our customers. However, till now, we have been unable to focus on this issue due to other requests. This was until the acquisition of SnapShooter by DigitalOcean which opened up an exciting opportunity for us to collaborate in this space.

This partnership has opened up a new realm of possibilities and opportunities for us to work together to enhance our backup system.

What is SnapShooter?

SnapShooter is a secure, easy-to-use, & affordable offsite backups solution used by agencies & web developers worldwide to schedule and automate offsite backups for their servers, databases & applications.

SnapShooter makes it easy to set up offsite server backup jobs to meet your specific needs. For instance, a developer can create a backup job for all WordPress application files and MySQL databases within a server, which will run according to the set frequency and backup all selected files to your preferred storage.

Backups With SnapShooter

SnapShooter offers an effortless way for Cloudways customers to create offsite backups of all their applications and databases in one go.

You can simply connect your Cloudways server, and it will automatically find all applications, databases, and files installed on the server and create individual backups for each. This simplifies backup management by creating smaller backup files for each application.

As a part of DigitalOcean, SnapShooter is offering an exclusive 20% discount for Cloudways customers on all plans for the first 3 months if you choose to pay monthly. If you opt for annual payment, you can avail a 20% discount on top of the existing 34% discount.
