SnapShooter, now part of DigitalOcean, has been at the forefront of simplifying cloud backups for startups and small and medium businesses (SMBs). SnapShooter’s easy, frequent and customizable backups are designed for peace of mind so that SMBs can recover from data disasters swiftly. Today’s cloud landscape is not just about virtual machines or storage, it is also about containers, managed databases, microservices, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and more. To make granular cloud backups possible across the cloud ecosystem, today we are excited to announce new SnapShooter features… These new updates enable cloud-native startups and SMBs to maximize the benefits of the modern cloud without worrying about data loss.
Docker is a popular container-based tool to package and deploy applications. It has made application development easy, portable and agile. However, backing up data within the container can be tricky because the host server can’t access these resources easily.
