SimpleBackups - DigitalOcean Server & Database Backups

Hourly and daily backups for server files and databases with smart features and API. Automated MySQL / MongoDB / PostgreSQL Backups.

SimpleBackups helps you automate all your backups in one beautiful dashboard. You can set a custom schedule for your backups and they will be taken automatically for you via your own server and securely stored on your own storage. SimpleBackups detects failures and notifies you when backups fail and when they are expected to fail.

It works with DigitalOcean Droplets, AWS EC2, Amazon Lightsail, Vultr, OVH, Rackspace, Laravel Forge, ServerPilot, and almost any unix-based server.
