We are very proud to annonce we now offer more than frequent than hourly backups on our SSH based backup options (MySQL, PostgreSQL and File/Folders).

Customers on the business plan can now select also select backups from ever 5,10,15,20,30 minutes.

What happens if backups overlap

SnapShooter will not allow a backup process to start if it detects there is a pervous backup job for that resource still running. You will receive a failed warning and a recommendation to turn down backups if the problem continees.


This is not available on SnapShot based backups due to some limitations that Snapshot providers like DigitalOcean provider.

DigitalOcean will now allow Snapshots to overlap and with a backup taking roughly a minute per GB it would be very easy for a user to lock there droplet.

Volume have a limit of 25 snapshots and no more often than 10minutes. So we also locked this to hourly.
