DigitalOcean Backups Vs SnapShooter

How SnapShooter Turbo Charges DigitalOcean Backups

What does DigitalOcean backups offer?

DigitalOcean currently offers weekly backups as a additional option on your droplet, its something you can easily turn on and off and will cost you 10% extra compared to the currently droplet price

A $60 a month server will cost you a extra $6 a month, for your extra 10% you only get weekly backups, with the last four kept!

At SnapShooter we didn't think weekly backups were good enough for most businesses at recommend at least daily backups.

What are DigitalOcean Snapshots?

DigitalOcean SnapShot backups are a way to perform a backup yourself of your droplet or volume. You can have as many as you want and you just pay the simple storage fee of $0.05 per GB per month.

This enables you to backup your Droplets and Volumes frequently however you then need to manage this yourself.

This is where SnapShooter comes in, we use the DigitalOcean SnapShot process to take Digital ocean backups and then manage those backups lifecycles. We can even transfer them to a second region automatically if required
