DigitalOcean backups Daily. Schedule frequent backups of your droplets & volumes to protect against data loss. Hourly to Daily.

DigitalOcean Daily Backups

SnapShooter allows you to take up to between daily and hourly backups of DigitialOcean droplets and volumes, providing a much better backup solution. You can retain as many old snapshot backups as you wish. You simply authenticate with DigitalOcean and schedule the Droplets or volumes you want to have backup protection on.

Why Backup your Servers Daily?

DigitalOcean does not currently offer a daily backup option, and weekly backups for the price of 20% of the droplet are not good enough for all. SnapShooter established itself in 2017 to meet the requirements to offer daily backups. Most of our customers find that daily backups offer the level of protection they need and enjoy being able to set their own custom retention rates (not limited to the 4 that Droplet weekly backups offer)

Weekly DigitalOcean Volume Backups?

DigitalOcean does not have an automated way to backup Volumes, we added support of up to hourly backups of Volumes, just remember you are limited to 25 per volume by DigitalOcean.

For a lot of our customer’s volumes backups are more important than droplets, with large and important data stored on Volumes for their high capacity.

Free Plan

Because we know how important having backups are we have a free plan that allows you to take daily backups of one resource, a droplet, volume or MySQL database. No card is required to enjoy this feature.

Offsite Database backups

SnapShooter how supports offsite MySQL backup support to AWS S3 or if you prefer DigitalOcean spaces, this offers an extra layer of protection for a-lot of our customers who again have key data protection policies.

I’ve been using SnapShooter for awhile and it’s been working great. Simon is very helpful and works hard to make sure his customers are happy!

Great service. I use it to create snapshots and replicate to a different data centre as backups. I signed up to the biggest plan and Simon emailed me straight away to tell me I could be on a lower plan for what I needed, and halved what I was paying as a result. How about that for service!

A great service with unrivaled support! Cannot recommend it enough!

I’m a happy customer! Thanks for the service.

The first thing you should do after creating your droplet is to head over to snapshooter and enable daily backups.

An essential service that enhances the base DigitalOcean service.

Been using for a few days now to manage daily snapshots of a web hosting droplet. I can sleep better knowing I have my client’s sites backed up daily now for a reasonable price.

Just in and so far all works as promised! simple and straight forward! will wait for next backup schedule to see how things works.

Nice and very easy service… Good luck friends!

Agree with earlier comment. Easy to set up, reliable backups, good service.

fishsander January 15, 2018 Great and simple to use service. Simon is always quick to respond. Thanks!

We are using snapshooter to make daily snapshots of our droplets. It’s very easy to create new snapshots and to restore them in new droplets and also to restore a copy.
