Automatically Activate New Servers

Automatically start backing up new droplets based on your default settings

Help manage your account when you work with a lot of droplets

We offer the ability to automatically create a schedule and activate Snapshots on new droplets as you add them. There is nothing worse than forgetting to set up a backup system on newly created resources only to need a backup at a later date. Backups are not something you can retroactively resolve, and SnapShooter can nip that problem in the bud!

If your company makes a lot of droplets during the day, activating them all can become a time consuming and error prone operation. This is why we offer the automatic setup feature on the Organisation plan.

How to enable Automatic Droplet setup?

  • Setup your accounts default settings
  • Choose the defaults that new servers will automatically use
  • Go to the Automation Control panel
  • Turn on automation
  • (Optional) Ignore servers with a name containing 'dev' - perfect for development environments


  • We don't currently automate the setup of volumes
