Automated backup of cloud servers

How much does it cost to not have a backup?

Cloud8 helps you back up all your servers. There is no backup limit and Amazon charges an average of US$0.15/GB (depending on the Datacenter location). The value is higher than the US$0.10/GB charged when on disk, but the big difference – and this is where the advantage lies – is that the backup is only made on the differential volume of data. Example: if you have 50GB and the data grows/changes by 100MB per day, you will only add US$0.01 (1 cent) each day to your account.

Cloud8 will manage your backups in several ways:

  • manual – at any time select the server you want to make a backup, give it a clear name and full description and run the backup;
  • automated – use the  scheduler , make as many backups as you want, at the time and day you want and sleep peacefully;
  • sync – Cloud8 syncs new images and snapshots taken through the Amazon console.

And in addition to creating a copy of the server itself, Cloud8 saves its configurations – Elastic IP, security group, access key, VPC, etc!

And if you need to restore the backup one day, whether to recover from a problem or test the latest image, Cloud8 provides a simple, quick way to restore.

See more details about the  backup/restore process  and screenshots on our blog!

Cloud8 periodically cleans your backups/images and/or snapshots. If you have a backup creation process, whether through the scheduler or any external script, Cloud8 can manage the rotation of backups. That’s the end of dozens of lost images and snapshots!
