Backup data from Droplet 1 to Droplet 2


I have an Droplet (Ubuntu 18.04) with a couple of websites on it. As it is now I backup everything perfectly on the the droplet through Cron job on a separate folder on the Droplet.

I would like to improve the security a little, bit more and I would like to create a new droplet that is only going to be used as a Backup Droplet.

I want to store Backups from the main Droplet to the new Droplet instead of having all backups on the same Droplet.

Are there any tutorials on how I can achieve this?

Best regards.

Hi @damir,

Unfortunately, there aren’t any tutorials however your task for making the backups be stored on your new droplet should be easy enough.

If you don’t want to massively change your cron job/script, you can just add a command like rsync or scp to move the backups to the new droplet.

Alternatively, you can create a cron job on the new backup droplet to collect data from the “live” droplet and again just move the backups to it.
