# Connect a storage
# Why do you need a cloud storage provider for backups?
The problem we aim to solve with SimpleBackups is, in addition of making the website backup process simple, to make it safe. Having YOUR backups stored on YOUR own storage is what everyone should be aiming for.
On top of that, most of our users are used to their provider, sometimes it's integrated in their processes and it's just convenient to keep things under your roof.
# What cloud storage provider do SimpleBackups support?
Currently, we support:
- Amazon S3
- DigitalOcean Spaces
- Google Cloud Storage
- Azure Blob Storage
- Backblaze B2
- Any S3-Compatible Storage (Example: Scaleway, MinIO, Exoscale, Alibaba Cloud, Ceph, ...)
- SimpleStorage (or own storage, practical to get started with, until you bring your own storage)
If you have any provider request, let us know we're always willing to integrate new solutions!
