Why Backup GCP Daily?
GCP is one of the world leaders when it comes to computing power, however, the console is not easy for everyone to learn and use. At SnapShooter we have created a simple way you can schedule daily to hourly backups of your servers.
We develop software, professional mobile applications and use Exoscale as a cloud infrastructure to host our servers. We have been SnapShooter and Exoscale users for a long time and I am really excited to know the partnership to allow you to take snapshot backups of my machines in the cloud in an automated way.
