SnapShooter Backup Compute
Serverless hosting continues to grow in popularity, and based on feedback from our customers, we've added support for running backups of services including managed databases. You can backup these services without the need to run your own backup server.
We make use of AWS Fargate and EC2 to provide backup servers that we route through a private network to a fleet of NAT gateways seen on the IP whitelist. This gives us multi-AZ support. We strive for three AZs where possible.

Only Pay For What You Use
Our compute network can save you serious money on backups. We bill by the minute for use of our compute engine, and in many cases this can be less expensive than running your own backup server.
For example, if you are backing up an RDS database that is 10GB, you'd need to run a t3.medium EC2 instance which could cost you at least $30 per month just for the server. At Snapshooter, we could back that database up in 3 minutes. You could run the backup 48 times a day for a total usage time of 72 hours per month. Your cost with our platform would be $5.33.
