A few months (more like plenty of months) ago I wrote an article on how I backed-up my Drupal servers.
That time I mentioned Percona and its awesome hot backup utility (which I still use):
Why Percona? Because it is cool! (fuck no, because it is stable, fast, and has a great hot backup utility).
I also mentioned my very own script for backing up the databases (nah, credit to cdamian, I barely modified it to suit my needs) and I also mentioned JungleDisk.
Well, this time I just want to let you know that JungleDisk has been taken out of the pictures. Our new toy is CrashPlan Pro.
Quick recap, how I do it?
- The script makes backups of the DBs to the disk.
- CrashPlan Pro backs-up everything we need backed-up every x minutes and sends it to its servers.
- I just watch it happen.
Why the change?
I started using CrashPlan at home and fell so in love with it that we moved our company to CrashPlan Pro.
- Unlimited space
- Great interface
- Awesome remote management
- Restoring can't get eny easier, I promise, I've tried them all, and this has by far the fastest, easiest, coolest restore system.
