If you’ve ever hesitated to change your site out of fear of making a costly mistake, you’ll love snapshot backups. A snapshot is a backup of your WordPress site that takes only seconds to create, so you can easily back up your site before you make any change (for example, updating a plugin). Your snapshots can act as restore points if you want to undo an action, or starting points for a new version of your site if you want to experiment. Each snapshot includes your content, themes, and plugins and is downloadable, so you can back up your WordPress files to a different location.
We take snapshots of your site every day, and always before we make a major update to your site.
One-click restore is just as easy. When you roll back to a previous version of your site, the restored version is usually ready in under a minute.
Site recovery with redundant offsite backups
In addition to snapshots, we take daily backups that are stored in a geographically separate location from your site. Where snapshots contain your database and filesystem data, your offsite WordPress backups also contain your media library and large files such as video. These backups are replicated three times in the cloud for a redundant backup system that contains everything you’d need to get up and running again if your primary data were destroyed.
Enterprise disaster recovery with Hot Standby
Hot Standby is our disaster recovery solution that allows your website operations to continue in the event of a catastrophic outage at the datacenter. In the event of a failure (hardware, networking, infrastructure, or data center), our fully-automated, geographically-redundant system will identify the problem and route your web traffic to a secondary location. The switch happens quickly and seamlessly, for virtually no data loss and little disruption in customer experience. Proactive monitoring and DNS switching results in smooth failover, giving you peace of mind.
How does it work?
Hot Standby is an active-passive disaster recovery implementation. WordPress files are synced every minute, and databases are synced in real-time. If the production server is disrupted, the standby server takes over, and all incoming traffic is routed to the standby server until the problem is resolved.
