Snapshots and backups replication

Posted April 24, 2015 1.9k views


Is there any way to get your data out of digitalocean? Like can i move a snapshot to my house? Or, can I backup somehow to my house? I’m not looking to move away from digitalocean, just curious about redundant backups or maybe moving data to a computer at my house to toy with while I leave what I make on digitalocean production.

We don’t currently offer the ability to download snapshot images. We user UserVoice to collect feature requests and help gauge user demand. This is a feature that has been requested before. You can vote for it there to show your support and subscribe to get updates from our product team if we begin work on offering it.

We do offer tutorial on quite a few different ways to backup or export your data. This one might be a good starting point for developing your own backup plans:
