If yours is a web based business, you need to plan for a good backup/recovery service. Unlike big businesses with IT teams that can manage different aspects of backup/data safety in-house, startups and SMEs definitely need a third-party solution around backups that work without intervention.
And comes Backit.co, a student startup (by Class 12th student, Pulkit Madan who earlier launched Coffee.io, a collaboration tool for geeks.
Backit helps individual/SMBs backup their website/database -(currently supports website (FTP/SFTP) & databases). Backit’s automatic system scans each website/database every 15 minutes and make sure to backup any change made so that the user doesn’t need to.
Another major function of Backit is “Migration“. “We have alway’s wondered if there was a easy way to migrate our website than to download all the content and re-upload it ? With Backit , we have tried to solve the problem of migration and made it possible for anyone to migrate his website/database in just a click”, mentions Pulkit.
What about data safety? All the information and website or database backups are encrypted using Backit’s 2048-bit RSA public key ensuring that only officially authorized Backit.co servers can read your data. Also, Backit saves all encrypted data in isolated servers so to make it super-safe.
Of course, there are several backup solutions available in the market today (read : BlogVault and the art of bootstrapping), but Backit needs to start looking at providing CMS based solutions (Pulkit mentions that WordPress backup is the next in queue).
If you are a webmaster who is looking for an automatic backup solution, do give Backit a spin and share your feedback with Pulkit.
