SimpleBackups, as the name implies, is an excellent service that makes it very simple for you to automate your cloud storage backups. Easy to use, caring customer service. I would absolutely recommend it.

Mikko Raasina

CEO at Affordia Oy

Simple to use, affordable, good support. As the name implies, it's really easy to set up air-gapped (offsite) backups. We're backing up our RDS database in object-locked storage, especially as an emergency/ransomware backup scenario.
