Improved performance

Our user base continues to grow quickly and in order to continue providing the best and smoothest experience possible we’ve made major updates to our infrastructure. We proudly power more than 100k daily backups across most IaaS providers and privately hosted VPS.

We’ve put a big effort into making sure we continue being able to provide accurate backup scheduling and that our Serverless infrastructure keeps up with the demand.

You’ll notice a significant improvement in performance.

Tweaks & improvements

  • GitHub backup now supports specific repository backup on the organization level
  • We’ve improved how Knack backups are handled, covering most scenarios and edge cases
  • Handling cases where the UpCloud Snapshot size wasn’t properly communicated
  • Fix some statistics graphs where backup retries were counted multiple times
  • Support for new Backblaze regions

We’ve released 5 backup guides, to help you get started with SimpleBackups:

We’ve also released an updated version of our “Cloud Storage Price comparator” where we compare the top providers so you can take a better-informed decision on what provider you need.
