Thanks @simplebackups! The ridiculous cost for manual snapshots of DO droplets, and added time to do it made no sense.

Why should I use Simplebackups when DigitalOcean offers a backup solution?

DigitalOcean backup solution can only be configured to take a single snapshot of your server on a weekly basis.
For many, this is not an acceptable solution as it means you might loose up to 7 days of data.
On top of that taking a snapshot of your server is not a practical backup solution as you would have to restore your entire server image if you need to recover some data.

How much does SimpleBackups cost?

We offer 4 different plans (from $0/m to $199/m), each with a set of included storage and features. You do not pay per backup, you pay a fixed monthly price for the backup service.

How much does DigitalOcean snapshot cost?

You own your backups! We do not want to have access to any data stored on your server and our solution is built that way. Backups transition from your DigitalOcean droplet directly to your selected storage.

Who holds my backups?

You own your backups! Your backups are dumped on your own server, then securely transmitted from your server to your own cloud storage.

The dumps are not stored on any third-party or even our servers during the backup process or transmission.

How does it work?

You configure the parameters of your servers, define what storage you want to use and schedule your backups. SimpleBackups then take care of getting your backup ran from your server to your select storage directly and update you in real time on your backup status.

Can I use SimpleBackups for client projects?

Of course you can!
Most of our customers leverage SimpleBackups to manage all their customers backups in one central place.

What is "SimpleStorage"?

SimpleStorage is a backup storage we offer to our users for which you do not have to pay any additional cost.
This backups is owned by us and a secure, shared fraction of it is dedicated to your backups.
At any time, you can upgrade your account to get more SimpleStorage or switch to your own storage solution if you prefer to keep everything under control.

What does "backup retention" mean?

The "retention" of your backup is the number of backups we keep in your storage before rotating it. Ex: If you have a backup rotation set to 2 for a backup configured to run once a week it means you'll always keep the last 2 backups, after the third week the first week' backup will be deleted (aka rotated).

What is your refund policy?

If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, email us at support@simplebackups.io within 90 days and we'll refund you in full, no questions asked.
