We struggled with how we could make sure our servers were backed up at the interval we were comfortable with, and with more control and reliability - without having to rely on an external service. SnapShooter bridges this gap, and makes us confident in the backups we have, while keeping them inside our server ecosystem.

Frequent Backups

Schedule snapshots with granularity from every hour to every day, in your timezone.

Archive Backups

Advanced backup rotation retention policies allows you to keep as many daily, weekly and monthly backups as you want.

Fast Recovery

Get back online fast if the worst should happen. Restoring whole server backups is easy, and we can get you running in no time.


DigitalOcean snapshots are kept secure inside their infrastructure. Your customers' data is kept securely by a provider already chosen and approved by you.

Easily connect cloud accounts

Connecting DigitalOcean is made a total breeze using the familiar and trusted OAuth authentication standard.
