Requirements:

  • Supports multi-part uploads

# Rclone

We add a Rclone binary onto your server which, its self contained and does not require the installation of any libraries. We keep a copy of rclone in your servers tmp folder. We check its version before every backup against the version SnapShooter has dictated to use and update if required.

We use this for the smooth uploading of backups directly to your storage provider of choice. It enables us to avoid installing AWS CLI which comes with a lot of library dependancies.
