We’re super excited to announce that SimpleBackups now supports Notion backups! 🎉

As you may have noticed, we're ramping up our SaaS Application backups catalog and the last in line is Notion!

We’ve been hearing from many of you about the need for Notion backups, and honestly, we get it. We’re heavy users of Notion ourselves, and we know how crucial it is to keep that data safe. As more businesses adopt Notion, having a reliable backup solution is becoming essential.

At SimpleBackups, we’re not just building features for the sake of it. We needed this ourselves because we know the struggle. Our ISO 27001 certification also means we require proper backups of Notion data, and the alternatives out there were just too complicated or limited.

Why would you need Notion Backups?

There are countless reasons why you need backups, and most people are already aware of their importance. Unfortunately, many businesses still lack strong backup policies.

Typically, backup efforts focus only on the data you directly "own/host", but this is a big mistake. SaaS apps you use contain a lot of business-critical data that also needs to be backed up. You cannot—and should not—rely on the app provider to offer a comprehensive backup solution. It's not their primary focus, and trusting them to handle it could leave your data vulnerable.

That being said, there are a few obvious reasons you'll want Backups for Notion, let’s break it down:

✅ Need for Restore Functionality: Notion simply doesn't offer a restore mechanism. A backup without a restore is almost worthless. Without a proper restore mechanism, getting your data back quickly can be a nightmare if something goes awry.

✅ Schedule/Automated Backups: Notion only offers a limited manual export function, that's it. Automated and scheduled backups are essential for peace of mind. No one has time to remember manual backups.

✅ Compliance Requirements: If you’re aiming for information security certifications like ISO 27001 or SOC2, you need to have robust backup solutions in place.

✅ Own Your Backups and store them safely: It’s important to store your backups some place safe and have full control over them, not on someone's laptop or any shared folder that risks being deleted.

Why SimpleBackups for Notion?

We’ve built our Notion backup solution to leverage all the strengths of SimpleBackups. Here’s what you can expect:

Automated & flexible Backups: Need backups daily, weekly, or monthly (..)? No problem. Our multi-scheduling feature has you covered. Set it and forget it. We’ll handle the backups so you can focus on what matters.

Choose Your Storage: With support for over 50 providers (Dropbox, Google Drive, any S3, SFTP, and more), you can store your Notion backups wherever you want and even on multiple storage for redundancy.

Anomaly Detection: We keep an eye on your backups. If something doesn’t look right, you’ll be the first to know.

Shared access, Notifications and Alerts: Don't let one person be responsible of your backups. Share access to a team and stay informed with our robust notification and alert system. You’ll always know the status of your backups.

As always, we put our heart and sweat on bringing the best experience possible: a modern app, with a modern feel, to keep things simple and let you configure your backups without friction.

We believe in providing a seamless, reliable, and user-friendly backup experience. So, if you’re using Notion (and we know many of you are), give our new Notion backup service a try. Keep your data safe, stay compliant, and enjoy peace of mind knowing your information is secure.
