CloudVPS Backup Account
In addition to the standard FTP access, our backup solution also offers access via a number of other protocols popular in the UNIX world, such as rsync, sftp, scp and rdiff-backup. Read more about making a choice between the various techniques here. We also retain meta data such as file ownership and UNIX permissions. This ensures that this solution can be easily implemented for most applications.
Purchasing this backup space is therefore a very viable alternative for the use of a backup server, VPS or an external backup service. Because the backups take place within our network and we do not charge for this type of traffic, the service is also significantly less expensive than most external alternatives. With the backup account it is not alowed to make regular backups to and from locations outside our network however.
This service is ideal for use with automatic backups, for example the ones you configure in your control panel or have made via a cron script. We also offer our own script for automating rolling rsync backups. Additionally, we offer a solution for performing Windows backups.
You can order this backup service at the same time you order your VPS. Feel free to send us an e-mail if you would like more information about this service or want to upgrade your current account to include a CloudVPS Backup account. You can indicate on the order form or in your order e-mail whether you want to set up the backup yourself or whether you would like us to do it for you.
