Continuous Backups

It happens. Sooner or later, someone deletes something they shouldn't. Then, panic sets in across the team as all normal work grinds to a halt.

Where's the backup server? Who has SSH access to box? Who has the S3 credentials? Who even knows the restore procedure? What? Bob's on vacation?!
... did we even turn backups back on after that last server upgrade?

Continuous backups make the inevitable much less painful. Every Database Labs database is continuously backed up offsite via WAL shipping. We can rewind your database to any point in time. Disasters suddenly aren't.

Continuous Backups

Every database operation is automatically backed up as it happens with WAL logging. This allows us to perform Point-in-Time Recovery (PITR) — to restore the database as it was at any moment in the past by replaying these logs.

Fully Managed

Backups are fully managed, tested, and monitored by us. You can spend your time writing your app rather than learning to be a database administrator.

Offsite Backups

Backups are stored in Amazon S3, which is physically remote from DigitalOcean's data centers. In the event of a total data center failure, we will simply recreate your database somewhere else.
