SnapShooter was founded in early 2017. I wanted to improve DigitalOcean's backup offering while
trying to protect a client's fleet of WordPress DigitalOcean servers. With my experience as a
software engineer, I realised there was a gap in the market for secure, easy to use snapshots
The idea of SnapShooter was born. Initially, we focused solely on DigitalOcean servers and then
DigitalOcean volume backups. We have expanded since then and have included many other offerings.
Our customers love the simple interface we have, with all the complex handling of backup
rotation handled behind the scenes. They also love our personal attention to any worries they
At the end of 2018, due to increased customer numbers and product vision, Jordan came onboard to
help with technical support and development, and at the same time my wife also joined to take
over the finance side of the business. We have also expanded our support team.
In 2020, the focus on SnapShooter became broader to cover not only DigitalOcean, but other
providers. Our customers always wanted a way to move their backups off-site, and we developed an
easy way for customers to replicate server data to storage providers. We developed this as well
as updating our dashboard to make management easier.
We will always continue to provide an efficient service, full customer service and give you the
confidence that your data backups and snapshots are secure with SnapShooter.
