What counts as a Cloud Resource?

We define one cloud resource as a single: DigitalOcean Droplet or DigitalOcean Volume

Who holds the snapshots?

Your snapshot never leaves DigitalOcean infrastructure. We tell DigitalOcean to create and manage snapshots the way you want. You will be billed in DigitalOcean for snapshots at $0.05 per GB. We help you estimate the cost. Learn More

How often do you Snapshot?

We currently offer taking snapshots every 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 and 24 hours.

Do you work with databases?

Please note that taking a snapshot on a extremely active database server may result in a incomplete backup. We recommend you use a export program, such as mysqldump or pg_dump. The exported file can then be safely backed up and restored.

What are Droplets and Volumes?

Droplets are the name DigitalOcean gives to their virtual private servers. Volumes are network attached drives you can connect to a Droplet to give it more space.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We process payments through Stripe, They accept all major credit and debit cards: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, Discover and Diners Club.

Couldn't I do this myself?

Yes you could communicate with the DigitalOcean Api yourself. Like all online service you could create your own version which you would have to run and support 24/7. We feel we have created an amazing service so you don't have to worry and can carry on with devops.

Why do I need to back up my digital ocean account?

It's always a very good idea to have backups of your droplets (servers) and volumes (network drives). The main advantage of using snapshots is how fast it is to restore your servers, much more quickly than restoring from offsite backup, as the backup is already inside DigitalOceans network.

Do you turn my server off?

No, we take snapshots of your servers while they are online, we do not turn on or shutdown droplets.

About Us

SnapShooter was formed at the start of 2017 after Simon was frustrated with the DigitalOcean offering while trying to protect a clients fleet of WordPress DigitalOcean servers.

The idea of SnapShooter was born, for its first two years we focused solely on DigitalOcean servers and then DigitalOcean volumes backups.

Our customers love the simple interface we have, with all the complex handling of backup rotation handled in the behind the scenes
