SnapShooter is an absurdly well-made product that I have been using for months to backup a whole range of things, from MySQL to servers and DigitalOcean and AWS to my code at GitHub. The UI is great for understanding and helping you get your backups set, and it made the whole process a joy. All my backups are actively monitored, and data is now safely backed up to my own AWS S3 account.

We had previously written our own solution to handle backups for our sites and applications. However, it had never been foolproof. After well over a hundred hours of development and troubleshooting when issues came up, we decided to find a third-party solution. After testing around ten services, we decided SnapShooter was the best solution for us. It's insanely easy to set up, the outstanding customer service, and the user interface is incredibly easy to use. SnapShooter offers a plethora of backup solutions and is constantly releasing more. We highly recommend SnapShooter to anyone who needs a backup solution.
